Basic, But Amazing To Me

I have a 12G JBJ Nano that has cycled for 1.5 months. Received my 1st ever shipment from Live Aquaria today. Went with a Yellow Watchman Goby, Pistol Shrimp, 6 Sexy Shrimp and 2 Scarlet Reef Hermit Crabs. Took be about 5 hours to acclimate everyone.

I can't believe what I'm seeing in the first few hours! Both of the hermit crabs immediately changed shells (Put about 6 empty shells in the tank). The Sexy Shrimp are all on top of one rock and my Goby and Shrimp are living under one section of rock. Every 2 or 3 minutes, I see a bunch of sand being thrown out from the rock! I know this is all common behavior, but to someone new in the hobby, its really exciting!!

Its absolutely uncommon to have a living box full of ocean in your house. I'm kind of glad i don't think I'll think of it as common.. :)

Be careful with the pistol shrimp though,,, they are know to eat other ornamental shrimps!
