    Hey guys yesterday I finally caught two glass shrimp which are half the size of my cleaner shrimp & I put them in the dt with my other inverts & all was ok until now which has been 24hrs. I actually watching this as it happens where the glass shrimp are exploring the tank then the two monsters started to pick on the smallest glass shrimp then they pester the larger one for a while. So far it doesn't look too serious but do you think the cleaner shrimp are trying to say something like get these guggers outa here?:whistling:

    Ok not even 10 min gone & it looks like it could be getting more rough. I have been cooking my LR due to hair algae for the last 3 weeks now & all LR is out of the DT. Do you think I should put 1 LR back for more hiding space?
