... HEY NOW! Hahaha All my mom does is drop food in, swish it around so Drax doesn't pig out on ALL of them... She's actually gotten quite good at tricking Drax to one side of the tank while she drops in the shrimp food. Yet... she thinks Drax is getting wise to her... if she so much as TOUCHES the food container near the tank he goes on full alert and just swims back and forth around the feeding area.
I on the other hand every weekend clean the tank... well decently Gravel Vac it, clean the glass of algae, fiddle with the plants, remove dead plants, trim the plants. Check the water, do one 20% change when I get home, then another 20% change before I head back to school which I think is fine. The water has never been so perfect. It has a SLIGHT Ammonia reading but then again I REALLY think it's just me misreading it, it's like the 0% color with a slight dingy greenish too it but then in some light it looks yellow... so ........ anyway even so still within normal healthy ranges with the water changes (which I do after I test).
So it's NOT like I'm making her do EVERYTHING haha. Besides, she says she enjoys it.
About the shrimp... Interesting...
I actually have pictures but UGH I don't know I've just been so lazy about updating, even though you'd probably ALL LOVE how my tank looks now... like a REAL Water Garden! I've anchored several stems of the Hornwort so the tank has these green arches of it floating in it. Sometimes you can't even see the Shrimp until they get fed... yet I've counted like 50 times... there ARE 10 in there.
He's the only dark one, all the others have a healthy glass look with... some have alittle green and s................ actually alot of them are developing white speckles on them. BUT........... Oh whatever I'll post pictures tonight within the next few hours after I finish this painting for class then you can tell me what kinda species of Ghosties I got haha.
