No, I haven't had a problem with CO2 outgassing problem due to the bubbling sound on my web page! In fact the only problem I have is that plant growth is so fast that I don't seem to be able to keep up with it and I've got Ambulia trying to sprout from my monitor <G>.

On another note I just got back from my semi annual drive to Uncle Ned's Fish Factory in Millis Mass.  In my quest for the out of the ordinary for my 55 gal. tank I purchased 4  "Flower Shrimp". These are similar to Amano Shrimp but much larger ( about 2 to 3 times the overall size of mature Amano's). I usually do some studying before adding a new life form to my setup, but these were way too interesting to pass up ( and I'm 135 miles from Uncle Ned's!). The web page on freshwater shrimp is now gone and I can't find any info on these critters. About the only thing I know is that they are filter feeders. Anyone have anything more on these shrimp? 

FYI- Uncle Ned's now has a very large supply  (according to an employee about a thousand! ) of real SAE's in stock ready to go, they are about 1 1/2" . They do mail order, but have a min. order. They also have Amano shrimp available also, and something labeled as a "Giant Otto", which appears very much like the standard ones only about 3 inches long. They had no info on these creatures, anyone ever seen or heard about these?
