A bit of background, I've had a low tech shrimp and micro fish tank running for years now, and I'm bored to tears with it at this point. I'm sure it would have been great for a desk top tank, but when you tuck away these tiny critters into the corner of a large living room, nobody cares that they exist. I guess there is something to be said for scale!
So anyhow, I had put some bolbitus in the tank, awesome plant. The problem with bolbitus though, is the tank eventually became a bolbitus+some other plants struggling for some light or flow tank. So, it had to go.
In order to rid myself of the bolbeastus, I had to tear apart my carefully laid out hardscape (which has been completely obscured from view for at least two years), and scrape the infernal fern out of every crevice on each rock and chunk of wood.
Finished with the removal, I was left with this:
Take note Amano, THAT is a nature 'scape
So that is what currently resides in my living room, and I really want to go a different direction with the tank, something I've never done before. So, macro algae and seahorses! Oh wait, how about something I can do on a budget of +/-0? Riparium it is then
