Did a 2 gal water change on my nano reef. I took the filter and power head completely apart and cleaned them really well. Back to working wonderfully again! I ticked off Blue when I pushed a little sand down in his hidey hole but he will get over it. It wi give him something to do. I need to kill more aiptaisia again.

Noticed the glass top on my tank was getting extremely hot from the lights, so i used a couple of cans of tuna to raise the lights up off the tank a little bit for the time being. I want to get a small fan to pull some of the heat out.

Other than that I added a little water, and fed them. Tried bloodworms for the first time today and they went nuts over them! I think I might keep it down to twice a week or so.

The fish are probably scarred from seeing canned tuna

Haha. It's nice to have a support group for your addictions. I have tried getting plants in my aquarium before but they've always died off. Now that i have some idea what i'm doing, hopefully i can turn my tank into a jungle.

Well i read about the method for the shrimp tanks at this link.

www.bookmasters.com/marktplc/00388Shrimp.pdf

At the moment i'm looking at the aquagreen catalogue and they have three Australian varieties for sale. These are the two I'm interested in.

AQUAGREEN Fact Sheet
AQUAGREEN Fact Sheet

It doesn't mention how well they breed but i may buy a second 5g tank so i can keep the shrimp apart to give the slower breeding variety a chance.

So for the last few days i've been doing a 20% water change daily (it got very cloudy after dirting the tank but is clearing up very nicely. I put my two comets back in there and they don't seem to be digging into the soil layer.

I went looking for some different plants today and was rewarded for my walk when i saw a mother duck teaching about 10 ducklings to jump off a 2 foot causeway into some water. Very cute and i have a video on my phone (which refuses to transfer files at the moment). My nephew also told where a goldfish was in this creek I was exploring that was about 1 foot long. I spotted him. It's a very healthy looking Comet.

I found some Azolla plants which i like the look of as a surface cover more than the Duckweed i collected last week. That was all i could find really. If i can't find an aquatic grass soon i'll just buy something. I've been enjoying the walking but I think i have almost every plant from this specific waterway at this point. There is quite a lot more of it to explore though so i'll spend a few more sunny afternoons in search of plants.

My list of identifiable finds so far is
Duckweed
Azolla
Bacopa Caroliniana common names lemon bacopa or water hyssop

I also have a couple that i don't think will submerge.
