Ghost Shrimp have almost no nutritional value. They should only be used to incite a predator to eat if the predator absolutely refuses to eat all other offerings.

I would not Q the shrimp, due to the stress of variation in specific gravity. This applies if you are using my technique for Q.

I won't be changing the salinity. So will the shrimp be ok and I think I will get black saddle back clowns.

If you are not going to change the salinity, then I would Q the shrimp with the clown.

For the record, I strongly recommend starting with a lower salinity. This is one of the primary advantages of a Q, in my opinion.

In place of the gramma I would suggest its cousin, the Blackcap basslet, cool purple and black fish, same requirements.

When you get to the cards, make sure they eat flake at the store before you buy them. A good number of them wont.

Get your clowns at the same time and get them young. Stay away from maroon and tomato clowns, too aggressive.



Ooops didnt notice there was more than one page. If any of my info is out of date with what you have already done, then ignore it heheh
