I was going to go with easy, to start. The winery nearby sells various types of yeast and their own grape juice. Can't get much simpler than that.

Thanks for the input, everyone. I was I was worrying about it a bit more than I needed to.

Cherry Barb Fry

My sister decided she didn't want her cherry barbs any more, so I took them from her and about two weeks later noticed that one of the females was huge, almost box-shaped. I decided on a whim to have...

It depends on what temperature your room is at. I would think 76-78 is better than 85, but if it's too cold in your room, it may be more detrimental. I would say to keep the heater plugged in for...

Bettas don't generally get along with rambunctious, flashy fish like guppies. Bottom dwellers like Cory's and otos are usually fine. A betta and three otos would be a good setup, too, if you're...

The tank seems to be coming along nicely. It looks much better with the sand cap, and some hardscape to attach the fern to will help as well.

I can understand your aversion to shrimp. I have some amano shrimp that are around two inches long and they remind me of spiders moving around the tank, though it doesn't bother me. Haha.

Raaan's 1.3 Gallon Planted "Column" Tank Journal

It does sound more like an assassin egg, though.

Glad to hear it was of help. Just keep an eye on it. Plants can easily get out of control in a tank that small. I just tore down/re-set up the one I mentioned for that reason.
