    My Tanks
    For about six months I've had a 20g long tank with two common goldfish, one female Betta, and one bristlenose pleco. It's actually my first tank, but I'm a bio major and pretty obsessed with observing aquatic ecosystems, so I got these seemingly incompatible fish anyways. I realize I shouldn't have done that in the first place, but here's my situation:
    To combat the waste produced by goldfish, I have three filters running. To combat the current that bothers the betta (who actually seems to enjoy hanging out by the filters) I put tall plants throughout the tank to stifle the current. I also use probiotic additives to dissolve sludge in the gravel bed, and plants of course act as a filter, too. Since my goldfish are greedy, I feed them first to distract them, then give the betta several of her pellets in a small corner of the tank before the goldfish can get them. To keep the goldfish from eating the pleco's algae wafers, I hide them in a little crevice in one of the hideaways. So far:
  • Signature
    There's a lot of additional information written into tree rings, but it is coded within a language that scientists don't speak fluently --yet. ...If you know how to listen, each ring describes how the rain fell and the wind blew and the sun appeared ever day at dawn.
