Ran my new CO2Art system for the first time
Beautiful and really exciting. I am looking into this, as I have been observing from the fringe of the cult for years now, !

Beautiful pond snail Tmaier!

~~~
Interesting that last spring I got some cool pond snails from our ditch that were ebony with a single tan stripe around them and had them in my bucket under the tree. But later in the season there were only ebony colored ones. Which had to have come from the others. In the ditch there were appx. equal numbers of stripe and black. I took about 6-10 don't really remember but did not take all of them so they would keep up the stripe colony. Still wondering what happened. Not a single striped one was in the bucket.

Anyhow that is my most recently memorable crazy snail lady story.


Aquatic nerd alert:

Okay so last night I tried to go to bed early. As I was feeding the fish before bed time I noticed some things moving around in my SW nano tank. So I got out my phone because these are basically tiny things I can no longer see sharply.

There was SUCH a HUGE amount of near microscopic activity I pulled up the stool and watched all manner of tiny things and some large ones too.

Pods of all kinds shapes and sizes. Ones that looked like larval shrimp, and larval crabs, dots, these guys, wierd worms, tiny spaghetti worm like microscopic things. Odd things moving in the sand granules. The tiny feather dusters so many little Bristle stars.

The Zombie snails shimmying into the sand to dissappear after eating.

I do not think I can tear the tank apart and move it all, because it will destroy so much fascinating life forms.

I mean it is truely amazing. Wow!

There were a couple pics which were okay but it was hard to get anything with an older cell phone camera in an algae on the glass situation .

All the pics loaded sideways but don't have time to change it right now
Garnet sand granules and a sea shell with the spider/crab looking pod beside it




Pom pom crab and reflection out grabbing particles in the tank - sideways pic too sorry



Changed about 30 gallons of water ibn the pond and actually found at least 3 fish alive. Remove a few of the dead ones.

Most all the Angelfish babies are now full on wiggling.

Wow I just looked at my 12G sw cycled nano with no fish yet and saw the water level down 3 inches, yesterday it was up higher at least 2.5inched because it was refilled for evap and tested for salinity!!!

Found the filter pad was full and blocking water flow and it was dripping down the back cord. I am presently wondering where 2 gallons of water went since yesterday, no puddle on the floor in front of the stand.

Refilling now that it is rinsed and the filter flow turned down some/not leaking in a drip, drip, drip fashion out the back.

Also checking on some fancy Goldies that need a home

I abandoned my hubbie in line when I spotted it at OSH. The lady at the register asked me to go grab the other one for her. Then I showed her pics of my snails. Such a proud snail mama.
