I'd report any changes but uhh... It's anubias and java fern. There aren't any. No noticeable algae either.

I mean, there might be copepods, but they're probably still too small to see

EDIT: On second thought, when the light hits it just right, you can totally see itty bitty moving things just catching the light. Sweet, stocking is done.

Its' not directly in the path of light though, so it's actually only low light I'm guessing

Well one of the anubias is getting a new leaf, so I think I get to call this a successful tank? Not much to take a picture of though.

Video update this time. Added some larger copepods from my pond. Soothing.

New tank syndrome and an algae bloom have struck the tank. I've started a very careful-ish Excel regimen so hopefully that clears up. Unfortunately the daphnia are doing well, they've given birth (they do parthanogenetic live births) and the young are quite visible.

One of the anubias has just about grown a full new leaf, so obviously something is correct in this little bottle. Even the java fern is slightly and slowly growing a new leaf.


And another video update. No talking again, just bouncing daphnia. Apologies for the shaky camera

Just wanted to update this. It's now sitting on a windowsill, and it's been ages since the last water change. There appears to be a thriving population of inverts, and the plants have done extremely well. Very little algae, I believe all there is is just a little greenspot. I did add a tiny MTS at one point, and it seems happy in there as well.
