    Hello, Today I noticed one of my yellow banded coral shrimp had an egg sack in her tail area. Does this mean that the two shrimp are a mated pair? Or do they carry eggs even if not fertilized? I couldn't find much about them online in regards to breeding. Other than it's not likely, is there anything I can do to help some survive?

    I went to clean my tank. (Husband recently set up a 20 gallon for himself). Today I couldn’t find buckets, test kits, hydrometer, fish net, scraper, half my hang on magnum (just half) he broke pieces and hid it, ro machine, towels and other stuff. Places I found them: freezer, on washer and dryer, hydrometer was on floor in front of his tank, kitchen sink, bathroom, behind his tank and back yard. Had to right a note for his safety. This is the third time this has happened and I just cleaned it up.

    Im a big fan of Dremel with diamond cutting wheel for massive colony types. You can cut surprisingly small and neat frags with this, and a screwdriver to pop off the frag once cut. After making a lot of favia and acan frags in this way I have no urge to use a bandsaw. And this is waaaay cheaper...

    I've actually used a chisel and hammer to break up rocks with success, but some are easier than others and you can't decide exactly where it will break.

    Haha! Our test kits are spread out all over the dinning room table right now as I am trying to track down an issue with my coral. Darcy has to clear out a spot so she can sit down with her meals. Unlike @TheClark we don't have a garage at all so the gear is all spread out on the basement floor (minus the stuff on the dinning room table of course).

    For anybody using Kent salt the last batch had pretty high alk on our testing~11.8 dkh. Also the calcium was lower then normal. It’s always a good idea to test any new batch of salt before using it.
