    Finally Moved.. Results?

    Well we moved, it was a pain as always.

    We bought individual sandwich containers and placed all the livestock in them, then places them in styrofoam containers. Then emptied the water in buckets and places the rocks in the buckets leaving the sand and one medium sized piece of LR in the sand (it has corals on it) and about an inch of water.

    My girlfriend's father built us a carrying platform built for the tank with rubber seals that made a tight fit so the tank would not of been carried on its own to avoid warping.

    As soon as we got to the new house we emptied half the water back into the tank, and placed one heater in the tank to bring it to temperature, as well as another heather in the container to keep the fish and such at the same temperature, did a 50% water change and placed them back in.

    The tank is looking great! Everything made it and I am happy and thankfull for the advice as always. I'll take picture's of the tank as soon as we unpack everything. The tank looks a lot better now

    Here are the pics as asked.

    When I was looking into the tank I think I also saw baby Peppermint shrimp? They were very small and gray, swimming all over under a rock in circles, up along the glass, up and down. And overlooking the tom foolery was an adult peppermint shrimp - There were like 9 of them.

    Anyway, pics

    Thanks for the comments Its the people that make this site worthing returning too

    i agree, the tank looks awesome :b6:

    i don't think peppermint shrimp will reproduce in our tanks, or rather the offspring don't usually make it with out very special care. is it possible they are just some monster pods??

    Very nice looking tank. That leather looks huge.

    Your baby pepermints are most likely mysid shrimp which never get bigger then what you have seen. They will readily reproduce in a healthy tank and are an excellent source of free food for many fish.

    ya, tank looks real good. I also agree, I think those are mysid's or similar. this is great. if they reproduce its a healthy tank and will help feed your tank as well.
    look at your tank at night with a flashlight about 2-3 hours after the lights are our.. you should see loads of them running around.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
