thought i'd update on my little nano tank!
since last posting, i recievd my teeny tiny sponge filter specially made for small bowls and such
i also got 5 little merah rasboras
and my little pink ramshorn snail population kind of got out of control.
it started with just ONE snail... which apparantly was already carrying eggs.
and from there, i have most likely close to a hundred snails now!!!
i also started off with just two teeny tiny brown flat ramshorns.. and now i have quite a few everywhere. they are harder to track because they stay so tiny!
i also still had a few shrimp in there, but they havnt been berrying, much to my relief, but the oens that were berried originally had their babies and a few survived. i see tiny little guys here and there every once in a while..
yes yes.. the tank is a bit over stocked.
ive been keeping up on water changes as best i can and havnt had any losses yet!
my java mos is slowly dying.. its turning black in spots and then slowly dying off. but its still producing many little new sprouts!
which are being eaten by the snails..
all in all, its a busy little tank, but it keeps me entertained as i work from home 4 days a week!
here is a picture of my tank when i first attached the christmas moss to the drift wood.
at that time i had java moss floating around so the shrimp had somethign to play in
then after the xmas moss filled out (quite quickly!) i took all the java moss out and cut back the java fern.
i love the way the tree turned out, but im at a loss for the java fern. i thought it was quite a nice thing on the side, but the snails keep eating it, or it keeps dying off and producing ugly new leaves with black spots...! is there a reason for this, something i can do to fix it?
any suggestings on something else i can add in there for a different plant?
i usually direct the light away from the tank now, as it heats the tank too much and its summer now. so its pretty much a low light tank now!
