Coral Banded Shrimp and Anemone

I want to go to the Caribbean!


Coral Banded Shrimp and Anemone from my 55 Gallon Reef setup in 2010, when I was selling the LED lights you see lighting this up.

Photo from my fish tank in 2010. I had a 55 gallon reef tank with clownfish, damsel, green chromic, tomato clown, coral banded shrimp, emerald crab, and various zoanthids as I found them to be a really cool accent to the tank. I had some cool photos of them under the blue color spectrum lighting where they would glow florescent, but those photos are too gone now. It was supported by a bio-wheel filter, charcoal hang on the back, and eheim canister to provide all the necessary filtration - bio, chem and mechanical. But the secret to clear water is frequent water changes. If I did a weekly 5 gallon change, it stayed clear, but as soon as it gets out of control, it can snowball quickly and take months to recover. Keep the PH at 8.1 and if you have any corals growing, dosing the tank with calcium and magnesium is a good idea. Just read the labels. I'm mostly putting this info out there because people say I took a photo of someones else photo. Nope, it was my tank, my inhabitants and I'd be happy to answer questions any day of the week on my reef setup, and taking photos of it. I can assure you, there are many that come out horrible for every good one you see. It was never easy for me to get these shots, but I've even had some of them ripped off from me before.
