He looked SO impressed with himself! That spider was gross, I'd die if one of my boys caught something like that, my bf would be the one taking it out so he wouldn't be impressed either. Great job Bartlby! Great video!
Thanks for the kind remarks! The tank is a 10 gallon tank with plenty of fake plants, a moss ball and I just added two spiny nerite snails to round out the mini-ecosystem. This tank is almost a month along. This the total bio-load that I'm going with on this tank (hence the spoiled Betta fish). The filtration is a 3-stage HOB with a homemade baffle to disperse water flow. I have a 50-watt heater set to maintain 77-78 degree temperatures. I'm in graduate school and living by myself, at the moment, as my wife had to finish her degree else where. As mentioned before, I kept fish, lizards, snakes, etc. as a kid, but this little project has brought some needed entertainment and companionship to me this spring as an adult. Eventually, the only thing that I would like to do with this tank is replace the gravel and fake fauna for real plants and a conducive substrate. Otherwise I've been very happy with it.
So, here is a question. Does anyone here have a sump filter on there fresh water tanks? I'm curious as to whether or not I could rig a 10 fresh water refuge but with a big enough middle compartment for a Betta home. I'm thinking more and more about finding a used 50 gallon tank and building a 10 gallon eco-filteration system for it. Probably no time very soon, but certainly beginning to think on the design of the project.
Geez... I wish the Magster annihilated all my arachnoid roommates. I have one in particular that is very clever and refuses to be squashed. Maybe I could lure it in... :twisted: Heaven knows that Magwitch is just aggressive enough to gobble it up. My little sister finds ants in her room on occasion and my guys like those well enough.
