7/28/2008 replanted and resealed 12/10/2008
West facing window with 3-4 hours direct sunlight
Gallo bottle and cork
Whatever is exhaled
Unkown. Sealed since day started.
A couple drops of Fourish prior to corking.
Dwarf Hygrophila and Wisteria. No Wisteria on replant (it did not do well the first time)
Three glass shrimp added 1/9/2009
This is an experiment. I have always wanted to create a sealed, self sustaining environment. Once sealed, the only addition to the tank is energy in the form of sunlight.
After five months, the snail population grew too fast. They ate everything.... except a clump of hair algae which was all that survived. I replanted with MANY more plants hoping to out compete the algae. I added 3 glass shrimp 1/9/09. As of 2/1 the shrimp look fine and there is only a thin layer of hair algae near the bottom.
