Using the snail treatments was one of the hardest things I’ve done in this hobby. I’m always careful with chemicals and medicines in general, and usually try to use less than what is recommended. In my experience, there have been more than one occasion where the chemical caused more harm than good. However, in this case, at one point, I used something like 12 times the recommended amount and it still didn’t do anything. This really proves the point that it requires a specific chemical for a specific case.
I’m usually fine with snails. I actually like them. If the population stabilized around 50~100 snails in this tank, I would’ve been fine with it. These trumpet snails however, did not stop breeding and would’ve crashed the tank. Think about a thousand plus snails pooping in the tank every day.
I’m amazed that the wild snails survived through all this. There are lots of wild snails still in this tank. Also, there are a few shrimplets that survived through all this. That is mind boggling.
This betta is a super frisky one. He goes crazy whenever I go near the tank since day one. Most bettas I’ve kept are usually cautious for a few days at the least, before figuring out that I’m the food source. He completely ignores the tetras. He is interested in the wild shrimp, but I haven’t seen him eat one. He also ignores the Amanos. He was most interested in the java moss. He probably has never seen one before.

I feed him:
INDOBETTA Pellet Monster #3
Hikari Betta Bio-Gold amzn.to/2ByRG3h
Food for everyone:
Tetramin Flakes: amzn.to/2Gouypo
Making Brine Shrimp: eswindow.info/call/oqmJb4Kr2ZNfrIk/v-deo.html
(*The most important part is the salinity and temperature. At room temperature, it might take 48 hours to hatch. At Higher the temps, they might hatch in less than 24 hours.)
(*For salinity, I’m going by the 1 table spoon per liter rule. However, depending on the salt, you might want to try up to 2 table spoons.)
Brine shrimp eggs: amzn.to/2L0Y4rG
100% deep sea salt amzn.to/2YVeiFd
(I use deep sea salt, but I think other salts will work, too. Something like aquarium salt.)
Brine shrimp net: amzn.to/30Gkrqg
60ml syringe: amzn.to/2W9iWm5
Neodymium Magnet: amzn.to/2QkFABu

Cherry shrimp amzn.to/2FsObxB
Amano shrimp: amzn.to/2U9pw9c

The plants in this tank now:
Micro sword amzn.to/301YQHl - Still hanging on.
Pygmy chain sword amzn.to/2HWhfyS - It stayed very short and small and sent out lots of runners.
Glosso amzn.to/2LFAVbn - They have sent out lots runners. It’s staying very small and low to the ground.
Java moss amzn.to/2N4uQsr - The ones on the rock are doing well. The ones below the water surface are also doing well
Staurogyne repens amzn.to/39SlurG - It’s doing just OK. It is a slow grower it seems.
Giant Duckweed amzn.to/2xV2iuR - It grows very fast in this tank.

This is a Walstad Method tank. Check out her book in the link below if interested. The book I read to make this aquarium:
