Cute and fun to make one!

Yeah, Planted Bowl that size not too good for a Betta, poor thing if it were to contain a Betta, as someone might do from the craft recommendations. Walmart has a nice 3G container which is around $10-12 like a round old fashioned canister. Like this shape


I've been eyeing the type jar which has a stand, looks like a Mason jar and you keep lemonade or ice tea in to serve. For a planted "bowl" for shrimp.

If that Gourami doesn't get yellow, you got a Opaline Gourami.

Watched the Cherry shrimp in their planted bowl chasing each other around in circles like a race track...must be mating time.

Here is a fun (older) thread about planted bowls with lots of nice pics
Planted Bowls!

Yesterday, tried to buy someones Cardinal School of about 50 but they were already sold.

I think so. I put the food in the back and swished around the front with my fingers slowly trying to get everyone to leave. They landed on me. Fearless critters.

I painstaking examined the water and found one I have vacuumed up. About the size of a mosquito larvae. I put him back in the tank.

Yay!!! Good job! Funny how they like to swarm around ones hand.

Sometimes when I'm working on my tank, an amano will swim over to my hand and start picking. That isn't quite what I had in mind when "feeding" them.

Oh my! I haven't had that happen yet. Just the little Red Cherry landings I can barely feel.

I bet you can feel the Amano picking away at your tasty human flesh.

Added 6 Otocinclus to the tank to help with my algae that is growing on all of my rocks.


Also found one of my Rams in my filter sock dead. Not sure if it died first or after in spent some time in the filter sock. I added some quilting mesh to the wier to prevent the fish from going into the sock. I quite often have had to remove fish/shrimp for the filter sock.

Guppies will try to eat my freckles.

Really? I'm relieved to hear that

I think I will run before/after tests next time I water change and see how they pull out....I usually only do before unless I'm doing a series of them to bring down a stat I don't like.

Moved all of the guppy fry to the 10 gallon. I'm going to the fish nerd place tomorrow and asking the owner to order us some psuegomugil rainbow fish.

I'm ready for this tank to have the fish we choose to stock, instead of being overrun by prolific poopers we didn't put there. Ugh. Guppies.

Hopefully we'll be able to pick up a couple of kuhli loaches to round out the shoal and black worms for the puffers.

I need some crushed coral, too, I guess. Even with a cuttlebone, having coral skeletons in the tank, and using a hardness booster, the pH still drops out with the CO2. It's either that or add baking soda with each water change.
