I know that I've been pretty involved, when it comes to posting my water testings and stuff, but I haven't really posted anything about my thoughts, idea, ect.. ect..
This tank sits in my bedroom, to the right of my bed. I'm finding that it's a pretty good thing to have if you suffer from insomnia, like I do.
I actually had a terrible night last night trying to sleep. I think that I might have nodded off for about an hour, but it's usually like that. I can't make heads or tails of if/when I slept or for how long.
When I got up out of bed, I decided to use a small flash light and look around. My betta was clearly sleeping, as his gills were moving, but he was perfectly still otherwise.
The three remaining shrimp were going about their business of cleaning the left over scraps/junk. I did count three and I do believe that the fourth ghost shrimp was rejected and torn to shreds.
I've also made a decision to replace the bulb in the hood with a better/brighter bulb, because I think that's why the plants aren't doing so well. That and the fact that this tank doesn't have actual dirt in it at all.
I'm kind of regretting that fact. I should have gone fully planted, but the fact is I'm a total newb and wouldn't know the first thing about getting it started.
Next time or if this tank ever needs to be redone, I'll take it into consideration. I might take a full shot of my aquarium later and post it.
