1.5g trials and tribulations...
so i've got a 1.5g hex all up and running. planted with just anacharis right now... gonna go for the forest look.
here's what the livestock started out as:
just a betta named Cab (short for Cabernet Sauvignon cause he's an AWESOME red color)
3 ghost shrimp
and some awesome weird lookin snail i found in my 55g
then i took out the 3 ghost shrimp (who were doing fine) and put in 4 rcs
then i bought 3 mystery (black, blue, yellow) snails from petsmart
keep in mind this aquarium is on the top of my TALL desk (eye level and i'm 6'2")
after a few days i noticed i'm missing an rcs. then another. then another, then they're all gone. i figured the betta ate them.
so i come home from a vacation this weekend to find a slime trail along my carpet floor and a missing black mystery snail. i start looking around and can't find him (or his remains). and how he got to where his trail was is totally bewildering. but under my desk behind my filing cabinet i found 3 dead rcs. how THEY got there... i have NO clue! so now i'm down to i betta 2 petsmart mystery snails, and the 55g wondersnail.
