      A short video of my newly started oyster reef tank. It's been running for two months now. The current inhabitants are: olive nerite snails (Neritina reclivata), barnacles (Barnacle spp.), Harris mud crabs(Rithropanopeus harrisii) Florida crayfish, one crazy American flagfish, a feather blenny (Hypsoblennius hentz), and two crystal red shrimp . Crystal red shrimp are not native to oyster reefs or Florida, but I liked them. They add some color.

      Really cool tank, I’ve never seen a tank like that before and I really like it as it’s so different

      Yes, it's pure fresh. I was surprised, but the crabs, barnacles and even feather blenny are alive and well in freshwater. I got them out of brackish canal with 1.016 salinity


      here is the video of me catching them

      We have oyster reefs in NY as well. I keep dreaming about a tank like this set up as an NY biotope. One day I'll have one.
