Our 5-Gal Critter tank


New Member
Hubby and I are new to the salt-water game...we've had our tanks up and running for about 3 months now. This one has been going flawlessly, and we've established the nitrates/nitrates at zero. Our long-term goal is to eventually upgrade and get some fish/reef...but we'll attempt to keep our critters alive for about a year or so before that happens!

From what I've read the Hawaiian shrimp are brackish water not salt water shrimp. Everything else sounds okay as long as the worms and stars don't outgrow your tank.
