135g Reef Update: $10 DIY Acclimation Box, Emerald Crab + Peppermint Shrimp results! (ReefCleaners)

135g Reef Update: $10 DIY Acclimation Box, Emerald Crab vs Bubble Algae & Peppermint Shrimp vs Aiptasia results!

In an effort to improve the DIY reef aquarium fish acclimation box, I started again with a fully acrylic container, instead of from egg crates. This time around, I went with the recommendations of using a Kritter Keeper styled acrylic animal container and work from that. The result was excellent, it is currently in operation in the 135g tank and I couldn’t be happier! In this video I also did a quick water change with sump clean up, and took a look at specific aspects of the 135g tank.
