It seems like they would, since they're brine shrimp. Gah, that's so weird.

You will always be my best friend, .

Thanks :) These are small dollar store pots, the hole in the bottom is like non-existant. The pic doesn't do justice. There's an anubias in one pot, glass pebbles on the black gravel and little floaty clover things :) I wanted another driftwood for Ludey's side but I'll just get something else.

Yea. The plant inside one gives it that.. Garden look. :p
I was thinking of getting rid of the one in Maja's tank since she doesn't use it and trying something similar in a boy's tank. "Secret garden" theme?
I've never liked themes but I kind of want to do one for the betta now, it's hard to work in the divided space. Wish it was only Gilbert in the 15 gallon. :(

Your 15 is only divided once?? That's like 7.5 gallons to work with!! You could do lots with that! I'm more of a drop and go "aquascapist". The only thing I did was anchor the plant in the pot with pebbles. Everything else was just left to do what it wants. I got so tired of things not working my way when I tried! lol
The LFS I bought my plants at yesterday had a display tank like 70 gallons big or something and it had christmas moss on dritwood it looked like little trees growing in the tank!!!! That was SO pretty!!! He doesn't sell his moss that I know of because it's all established in that tank. phew, it was so nice.

No the 15 is divided 3 times since I got Kamikaze. :(
I'm so tempted to bring one of them.. out of my room. C'mon mom, they are SUCH nice decor. Get a little designer tank for one of them. The 15 gallon is so abused. Algae and dead plants in it. I have to clean it out today. I have time now that I'm temporarily done with the 90 gallon, my dad is building the stand today and we should be sealing it as soon as I give it a final clean.

Everytime my LFS has moss I grab it, it's hard to find around here. They sell it in little plastic containers that sit on top of the tanks so I don't wait for service.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

moss? Like java moss? really? The lps here says java moss is not actually java moss and that it comes in with their fish and ONLY survives in their tanks and they're not allowed to sell it... I was told that twice (because the first time I thought buddy was just saying it.. Apparantly all the workers are told to say that. I don't know why, nor do I care because I try to avoid giving them any money)
So you still have 5g per fish!! That's enough to work themes :)Maybe they're taller than are wide. I don't know. Oh the 90g will be really cool!! I can't wait to see it!
