My CRS just got berried. I can't wait for it to show me some babies. LOL First time ever that I have a CRS berried.



Please forgive me for my grammar mistakes!

That's great news!

You'll have more shrimp than you know what to do with about six months from now.

True. LOL once they adapt to your water.... they just keep breeding non stop.

Always fun finding new babies.

Can you spot them?



The juvenile CVS are growing up nicely:



Here's how Frogbit has adapted to the tank's high surface flow:




A note: I figure the Marsilea minuta should be completely filled in by about... five years from now. Ha.

It's Om Nom Nom time in the tank!

But ignore the food, shrimp and the mass of algae covering that clump of Fissidens and focus on the Marsilea minuta:



I think it's beginning to grow in at a faster pace than I originally thought.

Houston, we have a problem!

I fell asleep on the bench in front of the tank and woke up to find a Pond Snail exploring my hand.

Can you imagine how crazy life would be if my other half ever finds out? Hoo boy, guess it's time to start keeping snail secrets.

LOL yeah they get out from time to time. Plop them back in if they are not dried out.

Did it tickle? Haha

They definitely go exploring but almost never beyond the rim of the tank. A few months back (I either wrote about it in this journal or started a thread in the inverts forum, can't recall at the moment.... maybe both) I discovered that they love to leave this tank and go exploring during major barometric pressure shifts. Other than those moments, they've never gone quite this far.

Haha, yes, tickled to say the least.

Most of them end up as Crusty McCrustersons by the time they reach the bottom of the tank and go exploring on the stand. This is a first.

That's pretty awesome. Tell me more about these shifts? Don't believe I've ever even heard the term.

I have no idea what the deal is but mine come outta the tank when there's a major weather front rolling through. Took me forever to figure it out and I still don't understand it entirely/haven't had enough time to truly observe.

Well that's interesting I suppose. I'll keep an eye out myself.

Weird snail observation time.

Started raining pretty heavily this morning and all the snails in the tank congregated at the water surface. When it stopped, they all went back down into the tank.

So what do you think that means? The air pressure increases the pressure they experience in the water and they want to escape it?

Not sure what it means, other than it just seems to be typical behavior for them. I guess I don't notice in my tanks with rims because they all have covers and I just don't see it.

On another note: One of my oldest PFR females (at the moment) just died. 599 days old - almost made it to the 600 mark. She only had two clutches and lived about half her life with some molt-related deformities. Quite a record for this blood line.
