How do you enjoy looking at this, what are we viewing. It appears to be dirty as far as I am concerned. Are you sure fishes are alive, if so where are they.

Hi Tom, thanks for your comment. This is a completely natural tank, no equipment (filters, CO2, artifical lighting), just plants in an aquarium soil substrate in a small tank getting outdoor sunlight. The first pic was taken with suspended algae. I have updated the pic after a week of daphnia addition for the fish. I also did a slight water change after a period of rain causing the tank water level to reach the lip. This is an experiment to see the difference in plant growth exposed to artifical light (my other 3 tanks) & natural sunlight. All the fish and invertebrates in this outdoor tank are doing extremely well and the tank equlibrium is slowly coming in line.

Interesting experiment... Will be curious to see how this develops.
