    Welcome to MASA Donovan, glad you joined. Please post pics of your tank and filtration for us.
    If I may advise you, rather see if you can get a piece of chaetomorpha algae - much safer and more forgiving than caulerpa. Caulerpa can easily become a nuisance and leach numerous toxins back into the system if something goes wrong.
    Some good info in my signature, maybe there is something you missed or need to know since starting your tank.

    hey donovan welcome to masa great to have you join and lovely to see your tank :)

    nice stock list you have there, ive always stayed away from dotty backs as i see they can be aggresive but awesum little fish :)

    why not give us a run down on what makes the tank tick, ie how much LR you have, what sort of skimmer, whats the sump configeration etc etc. Id be very interested.

    i see that GBTA is still small, how are your lights? Your tank is a little younge for a nennie but if your water is stable (do you test much?) you may get away with it.

    MASA has lots of great sub section and you might like to post a few pics of the nennie in the annenome forum so that you can get some specific advice on it :)

    welcome and happy postings

    Welcome Donovan.

    As Crispin has confirmed, that shrimp is a Camel back shrimp, can be quite nasty little buggers, try and take him back to an LFS to trade for something else, they have been known to eat certain corals.
