Just wanted to update pics and progress with this tank. I think we all go through the learning curve over time. I did feed spirulina powder but no longer feed at all. It does take waste from the opae to grow, feed, & produce algae. So maybe I fed the tank for too long but I'm ok with that. No filtration not even an air stone. The front glass has not not been cleaned off for over a month. Don't feel like cleaning it since there's a bunch of baby opae swimming around.

Nice and healthy. How much do you think you have in there now?

Hard to say how many opae are in there. There's a back compartment in the tank filled with lava rock which most tend to hide.

Ok, you must have thousands in the back compartment :).
Looks you have another tank to the right. What you keep in there?

So keeping opae kinda go outta hand. Added more tanks. Next to my 6 gallon is a 2.5 and a 5 gallon. I have an additional (2) 10 gallon tanks. I'm trying to cut it down to (2) tanks by transferring them all to may a 20 and a 40 gallon. I'll post some pics later tonight.
