I like the. Visuals. Many people are visual learners. I'm one of them. I don't
know why, but these shrimp tanks are much more exciting than any fish aquarium. Approximately How many opae are in that tank now?

I missed this reply! I have around 300 in this tank at the moment, I'm still working out how much to feed them all because there are so many. I'm feeding once a week currently but may up that to twice a week.

I couldn't honestly tell you lol, I've had some from lots of breeders world wide and they send extras, I bet I've bought 200+ of them.

Hi Odin,
I'm trying to order the rest of my equipment while trying to avoid meltdown. Here is a question that I must ask. Is the TDs pen something that should be used for distilled water also?

You will do fine without it so I'd leave it for now.

Thanks, Odin,
I did use your photos for help. I want to start this tank while the Opies are still available.

I don't blame you! Once you get over the hump of putting the tan together it pretty much looks after its self! If you need help you know where to ask!
