Hi Lawst, and welcome to the AA forum! I just love your collection of various kinds of wildlife and the creative manner that you have presented them. It is very different and eclectic, and it is magical. Keep it up, and keep us posted as your collection evolves.

@KonvictKeeper - Thanks for the link. I kept looking for minnows and coming up blank. They're fun little fish that have been easy for me to keep after. I tried to get a pic of the shrimp but it doesn't show up on camera.

@Starquest...*GRIN* Thank you. I've been enjoying the micro enviornments. They take somr work to get going but once they hit that balance point it is like magic. I just reconfigured my rams horn jar because they ate everything in it.

@KonvictKeeper - Thanks for the link. I kept looking for minnows and coming up blank. They're fun little fish that have been easy for me to keep after. I tried to get a pic of the shrimp but it doesn't show up on camera. Once in a while I throw in some flake food, same as I was doing for the snails. Mostly they're grazing the algae, eating tiny snails, snail eggs, and the micro organisms that have tagged along in the bayou water I top it off with. The vase they're in is currently in a shaded west facing window to keep the algae growth slow but steady to keep up with their grazing. When I leave town next month I'll give it more sun to make sure they have enough to eat while I'm away.

Oh...At the moment there's bug of some sort that died in there that everything's been nibbling away at. Mostly the fish prefer the live food and algae.

I found Heterandria formosa (least killifish) in my looking around about mosquito fish. Might be what I have here with the spots on the fins.
