Well I know I've been blabbing about trying it, and getting some critters and plants from the lake. Anywho, odd thing is THIS plant and THIS plant (neither are my pictures) are in the lake!!! First one I believe is duckweed, second one I never remember the name of the plant. The second one is found mainly in the murky water (where a leach hitch hiked my net)... With the shrimp who I've caught 8
they've been acclimated to the 17.8 gallon tub, which I will add a air pump here soon as well.
The third and fourth picture is the tub, with the bunch o' goop and critters. It was mainly a daphnia/infusoria desire to go to the lake
Now I have a mini ecosystem.
Second last picture I got one white shell, and the other I believe is alive. I remember them from BC!!
Last picture is one of the snails... And fyi that isn't the biggest fella
also, did you know they bite? It feels....weird.
Anyways, what is the second plant called? How hardy are they really? What are their needs? The one I get from stores always die in warmer water. So I stopped getting them since I own all tropical fish...
And what are the snails called?
How do you feed leaches? xD I didn't mean to get him lol.
