Neat little tank. Cool critters too.

Just a word of advice. The crabs need a place to get out of the water, and are brackish. They may go after the Ghost Shrimp too.

I know I made an island for them after this picture was taken, and the shrimp were actually planned out to be a little treat for him.

nice little tank.
my plecs love that food.
i bought it for the shrimp,but they got eaten,so now the plecs eat it.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

At least there are no hole in the tank for him to crawl out of! Might be realy scary to have him crawl into bed with you!
