So far my shrimp are doing pretty good. I am feeding them daily and only some are pink, probably because of the heat. There is green stuff on the rock. I don't know if it was there before or not.
Today we put accessories in the shrimp habitat. We added the artificial seaweed\plant. We put it there so the shrimp can have more places to rest on. We put it on the rock that we chose. My group and I made a video on how to make a opae`ula habitat.
Today we made Brackish water. First, we added gravel with bacteria in it so the bacteria can decompose the animals the die. Next, we chose a rock to put in the shrimp habitat. The rock also had bacteria in it. Then, we mixed sea salt and fresh water in a big bucket. We measured the water with a hydrometer to see if the gravity was in between 1.0006 and 1.0008. The gravity of the shrimp's water when it was in the pond was 1.0004.
Today I prepared the gravel with my group. It is the first thing we do to start making the shrimp container. First, we poured the gravel into the bucket. Then, we got all the dirt out of the gravel by watering it. Last, we put five spoonfuls of gravel in each glass container. Me and Stephany took pictures. I'm excited to do the next step of making the shrimp container.
