Hi All! We have added much life to the tank in the last 2 weeks and have learned a few things. Apparently you can have snails OR hermits. Good to know. Oops. We have 4 hermits, one we have named Jerk Face. His hobbies include pushing other hermits off the rocks that he wants to be on and messing with their shells even though he can't fit in them. We put 2 of the hermits in the BBQ Tank aka feeder tank. 2 Peppermint shrimp we named Hoo and Deenie... because when we woke up the next morning they had promptly got themselves into our overflow box. We spent 2hrs trying to get them out, well, Rocco and a friend... then I stood on a tool box and caught them within minutes. :) We put some big holed plastic mesh over the area to not restrict flow, but to keep the critters out. 1 Fire shrimp was added a week later. And 1 Tiger shrimp (Sir Stewart), who is doing some work on a den in the sand, luckily, facing us! We're trying hard to NOT get attached, but they're pretty cool creatures. We tried a Sand Sifting Star, but maybe the tank is too young, or there was too much life, or we didn't give it enough time to acclimate... but it died a few days later. Sad. The Tiger Pistol Shrimp, The guys trying to get the Peppermints, Jerk Face... and Jerk Face being a bully seconds after the first pic was taken!
