Aquarium Lighting Change – Day to Evening

Mantis Shrimp Cave System Installed & T5’s Ready for Break-in Period


Happy New Year!

The Mantis Shrimp new cave system has been installed.  My last post shows just the PVC.

 

He stayed in his old tube the whole time I was doing construction.

 

 

Oh and here are a couple pictures of the new T5 bulbs installed and raised up 7 inches for the break-in period.
