Kind of Ironic

Recently one of my planted tanks had a malfunction (translated major leak) and as a result the inhabitants 2 rams, 17 neon tetras, cory cat and otto along with 3 amazon swords spent 11 days living in a 5 gallon bucket with an airstone and very little light. I fed the fish sparsely due to no active filtration.

Well, finally got the tank back up and running and I am amazed that there are no causualties to report. Plants look a little worse for the wear but the fish all pulled through the ordeal. Actually had the opportunity to modify the tank setup slightly incorporating some of the ideas/techniques learned here.

This experience kind of makes me re-think all the time I spend tinkering with the tanks. Perhaps less is more. Go figure.

It's hard to make that bucket look good.

And many plants are hardy, they can live a while in a bucket without showing signs of too much stress. But they won't really flourish there...

Great that all your fish pulled through.
