Congrats for the shrimp babies. Pretty rare the eggs will stay alive attached to anything. They'll normally be a quick snack for other shrimp o.O!

And aw, you're adding ferts now. I was expecting you to like go into the backyard and throw in some dried dog poop :P. Repeat as needed.

Just to be safe, maybe wear some gloves when you're servicing this tank?

While I use a bag and don't handle it bare handed cleaning up after my pooch at the park I still wonder if pets that are properly cared for are a parasite threat? Is a transmission in the excrement really a huge concern? If we see anything other than chew toy (rawhide) in our pup's waste he is going to the vet. Yard bugs do migrate into the piles and dung beetles here have wrecked the yard LOL.

Kinda wish you would have stayed poo only on the supplements relying on the substrate but this is a great thread to follow.

I admit I'm following this because it seems so weird and extreme. I also never heard of the B.A.R.F. diet before this thread. Lo and behold, I had to take one of my cats in for an emergency visit the other night, and I got to talking about food with the vet. Turns out she feeds one of her cats an all raw diet for allergies, and gave me the contact info of the butcher she uses. We talked for over an hour, and I am sold on the benefits of the raw diet. I can easily see now how much "poo" quality can vary according to diet. Now I'm hooked here for more reasons - it doesn't seem so strange now! : )
I hope my mind never closes to new ideas!!!

That's true - the emergency vet reminded me of the same thing - she said back in the day, prior to the processed packaged foods (which are surprisingly recent - at least it surprised me to find out how recent) our pets fed on a diet much closer to a natural hunting diet.
I'm really looking forward to feeding my pets better...

I should also add it's made me think twice about what I feed myself - all these processed foods...
Enough derailing! Sorry!

I clicked on this and was like....wow that's dog poop in a shovel. Oh, what is he doing with that dog poop. Then I knew. For the record the, most dog food will not make good poop. High protein diets are not good for fertilizer/all the chemicals in dog food. You should have grabbed some horse manure from a grass feed horse! THE BEST. I work at a horse veterinarian...we give away the feces to farmers.....have worked with small animal vets, know how terrible dog poop is for anything really. Help me with my tank's fertilization needs please. http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/ta...ed-pretty.html

Grass & Oak leaves:

Grass - "Clippings contain about 4 percent nitrogen, 2 percent potassium and 1 percent phosphorus.

Leaves - "the nitrogen content of composted leaves on a dry basis usually varies from 0.5 to 1.0 percent. Potash amounts are in the same range. Phosphate amounts are around 0.1 percent. Increasing the organic matter content of the soil is the main benefit of incorporating composted leaves into the soil.

Coffee Grounds - Contain about 4% nitrogen, 1% phosphorus, and 3% potassium. You can also dilute your coffee grounds with water. This makes an excellent liquid fertilizer that's completely organic.

What about tea leave? Any info.? I frequent put them on my super barren yard soil.
