i have to get a dolly for the trashcan too, would make life easier. last night i noticed a female sexy shrimp with eggs. this morning i either cant see the eggs, she dropped them or shes hiding. even IF she had hatched them with corals, pumps, aiptasia/hydroids, other creatures in the tank they are pretty much spoken for. i would eventually like to prepare a seperate tank for this, if i do find a female with eggs i constructed a temp. breeder that may or may not have success but a better shot then just letting them go free swim the tank ( when they are born they dont crawl yet )
i used an empty soda bottle with a small sqaure cut where i then patched with window screen. i attached a second layer of screen going the other direction. i used 2 1/2 tubes of $1 store super glue gel around the edges to attach the screen.
this prob. wont keep hydroids out and who knows if the fry can even escape but it will be a slow flow area better then the tank
larger plastic netting inside for moma to hold onto
