Tank: Lifeguard Aquatics 5.4 gallon.
Filter: Dennerle Corner Filter ( may be changing this out to a smaller HOB- its a bit big).

Substrate: Fluvel Stratum/ basic aquarium sand
Rock: Manten Stone


Plants: Buces, mosses, tall hairgrass, some kind of aquatic reed ( unknown), marsilea crenata
Shrimp: After 2 months of cycling-- [I have to satrt all over again] Tiger shrimp and neo's.

Snails: Ramshorn

I took out some of the hairgrass on left hand side and added some Ludwigia. Not sure what variety it is. I also added some Rotala "Orange Juice" on right side. We will see how each of these plants do.
I haven't noticed any die back at all in any of the plants. Snails have been doing a good job of cleaning of any algae.

Looks like you're off to a great start.

Lots of hidey holes for shrimp in there, I see.

Let me guess: doesn’t even watch fish or shrimp? “Nope, just here for the fresh tasty water.”

Maybe you should set him/her up with their own drinking tank, obviously prefers the more organics laden water over tap your probably filling reg water bowl with.

Clear tub with emergent plants on floor and a few snails and penedent light on timer for kitty water processing, would be a cool experiment.

Some people find that their beasts leave their tanks alone when they get pet fountains to use in addition to their usual water bowls.

The running water often keeps their interest over still water in their bowl.

Or, if you're me, you just have to suck it up and cover things with glass or mesh because the beast is too intelligent (not always a good thing) for its own good.

Thanks for the suggestions- I need to think more creatively for this cat with this issue, he is too smart for his own good.
