What's the purpose of the filter anyways? Once thoroughly cycled, the vase will more than likely maintain steady parameters.

Why NOT have the filter!? More surface area to graze, more oxygen in the water, no oil slicks on the surface... I see only positives from having it in there...

I ended up adding some black paper for background, not sure if I like it or not, it seems to make the water look less clear for some reason, even after a fresh WC. oh well, we will see how it goes.

So, heres a low low quality pic of something I havent had before

possible BABY bv's down the road

Actually, im not sure what to think about this right now, because the 20L should be ready in a few weeks? and I know itll be a lot easier to move a prego mom than all those babies... but will the cycle be done in time? will she hold off? will she hold her eggs if I move her super close to giving birth?

Details to come...
