Here is an update of how my ecosphere is doing. It has exploded with life! I have about 80 baby snails, hundreds of copepods and ostracods, a few funky looking planarian, and a layer of duckweed that wasn’t there before. I also let a medium sized RCS go in the jar. He is happy and thriving. Here r some photos. If you look at the first ones and then these ones, it’s amazing how much it’s changed.
