Nice tank JM!

 

Always wanted harlequin shrimps too, but the need to feed starfish kind of deter me from getting one up till now. How’s your experience with keeping harlequin shrimps?

Thank you! They’re really fun to watch especially together. They do eat like pigs though. I get a chocolate chip star every 2 weeks but they usually Finish a mid sized one in a week. Definitely a high maintenance shrimp. I heard of ppl cutting off a leg per week and just freezing the starfish but I had no luck with that, mines want the starfish alive..

Great looking setup! Welcome to NR! Very nice euphyllia collection! Love harlequins - I used to keep them, too - they're not so difficult, just picky, and so fun to watch!

Thank you!! They’re my favorite coral need to upgrade so I can get more. And yeah my harlequins are funny whenever they get out of their cave to look for food they always do handstands on the tank walls lol

hows the canister filter been working? how often do you clean it? I was actually thinking of doing a setup very similar to this.

It works well! Keeps the water crystal clear and catches a lot of detritus. I do clean it once a week though. A lot of ppl say they won’t work for reef tanks because they’re “nitrate factories” but essentially everything can be a nitrate factory if you don’t clean it. Just keep it clean and will work very well.
