Ramshorns do need to mate to breed.

And they won't overpopulate unless you're feeding like crazy. Even then, you can typically sell them or give them away with ease.

All the ramshorns in this tank have speckles on them, it looks pretty neat!

Some updates, the plants are filling in great, and the total for OEBT's is 3 blonde and 3 that are a very deep blue...the biggest has a SADDLE! Pardon the anacharis, it's due for a trim...




These shrimp are a lot more curious, or aggressive, than my crystals. Whenever I'm doing work in the tank they always climb on my hand and start nibbling. Crazy little dudes.

Means you just got nice tasting dead skin :P.

Anacharius just doesn't like me. It grows really well in my tanks.. but never roots. And I can't stand it floating all the time so I trashed it

LOL!

It's a weird plant, some of the plants are trying to root half way up the stem :|

Yea they do that on mine too... but the roots never reach the substrate and stick before it floats up !

Reddit brought me here which is why I'm resurrecting this gorgeous little tank. (No, I wasn't the OP. Just a curious lurker hehe.) I just got myself a 2.5g as well and I was curious if you use any kind of ferts or CO2 in the tank because your plants look great. Also curious about your air pump, because it looks like you have 2 air lines coming out of it, so where does the second one go? Or is that a T-joint I spy in one of your pics to increase the flow on the sponge filter?
