    Acclimatised them well? Just remember floating a bag is not enough like in freshwater. You have to slowly add water to the bag water by means of dripping or adding a bit by glass every now and then.

    Just remember that should you want to add cleaner shrimps, you need to drip acclimatise them for 2 hours or so as they are much more sensitive to pH, temp and salinity changes. The link is in my signature :)

    41594d2fe6eba6bec.jpg
    My 2 nemos and a blenny. Still being acclimatized.
    That was yesterday afternoon.

    This mornign they ate well and there looking good.
    Cant wait for more fish, my tank seems so empty right now.

    Thanx for all the help ppl.
    But i need to ask some questions.

    When is the best times to feed my fish and hermits?
    Must hermits get fed every day like fish or do they only need the substrate?
    Must fish get fed at morning and afternoon?

    Please give me some advice.

    Cw out

    Better pics will be added soon....
