Break out the bubbly and cigars!

So in my other thread about snails I took out a snail in question and after examining it I found something else in the "petco cup of water" that my eyes had focused "beyond" .. Something darting in the water (from my fish tank)...


BABY WCMM!

OMG Sooo cute!

I went to see how many I could find.. about 4 at any given time and they're on the non filter side of the tank hanging around my Cabomba... *grin*

They're so tiny only about 3 millimeters long. They look like debris that moves the wrong way suddenly. Some are bigger.. more color like a baby neon tetras. Probably from my other female

I went out and got a sponge filter and some first bites today, most ate the first bites which is very encouraging. I put the old filter (Penguin Biowheel HOB) and the biowheel into the water near the new filter so maybe the new filter can get some bacteria in it soon...

Oh someone wanted pictures.. this is the best my camera phone could manage. It wanted to take pictures from 10 feet away, and not focus..
