Nature is funny even if in our small kept worlds . My 30 gal long was left what I thought was empty life wise with just 3-4 inches of water , no filter , heater , water changes , nothing for about a year because of sudden health issues . When I went to get it back up and running I found 4 Platys , an abundance of MTS , the descendants of which are still going in both my tanks now , and Java Fern and Crypts which are also going strong in both my tanks . The Platys were much smaller than would have been normal , but were healthy and readily adapted when I got the tank back to running condition . A couple are still kicking and the others bred and sent offspring before they passed . Anyway , my point is nature/life will find a way . Oh , by the way , the Java Fern from that situation is all I have left from a bunch I have had for about 18 years ...lol
My wife says if I get one more aquarium she is going to leave me . I sure am going to miss her fried chicken .
