Comments

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.
