User

willeyeam

Size

15g?

Date Started

summer '05

Lighting

one 19Watt 20" daylight flourescent

Equipment

one "whisper" (BS) air pump for circulation NOT oxygen/CO2 (i only run it occassionally to clean the surface), no filter, no nothing

CO2

n/a

Substrate

naturally occuring detritious; java moss; worm, shrimp, frog, and fish poop

Parameters

there is a suspended island of woven bamboo with mosses and plants, and the duckweed flows counterclockwise (direction of life) around it.

Fertilization

dead leaves from my house plants, rarely, and preferably flower petals or leaves from a succulent because they keep surviving and growing into plants in there instead of decomposing

Plants

java moss, duck weed, some mosses I found in the woods in Oregon, Jade Tree, some little succulent, microbial flora and fauna (my own culture)

Inhabitants

pair African Dwarf Frogs (male and female, i think), breeding pair Bettas, 1 Pitbull Pleco, 4 Amano Shrimp, 1 big pink wood shrimp, 1 Apple Snail, populations of bloodworms and black worms.

Comments

I don't have to add nutrients or filter the water. This is a totally successful ecosystem! it's been going for two years-ish, the critters have been in there for over a year!
