Ep.13 Lettuce Betta Tank (The Last of Strawberries) No filter, No CO2, NO ferts Nano Tank

Kartoffel is a wild betta species called Mahachai betta. The strawberry plants hung on for much longer than expected. Towards the end, the tank’s balance broke b/c the strawberry plants were not “filtering” the water. This resulted in spread of cyanobacteria. This was the one of the reasons why I did a very big water change. I also manually removed the cyanobacteria with toothbrush and syphoned out most of it. I don’t expect the cyano to completely go away, so I might end up spot bombing it with hydrogen peroxide or maybe use “Blue-Green Slime Stain Remover”. The giant duckweed also mostly died. I removed them for the time being, and I think I’m gonna try regular duckweed in the near future.
The lettuce are doing great. Kartoffel really perked up after the lettuce spread out their roots.

* I’m still filming my tanks. I’ll try to upload more often, but these days, it’s hard to find the time for editing. This video was shot from Nov 11, 2019 to March 6, 2020. I’ll update the volcano tank next, soon. Thanks for understanding.
I bought the lettuce plants from a local gardening store. If you want to try it and can’t find it locally, you can try the seeds here: amzn.to/32UuCsK

(*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.)

  • I was never interested in fish or plants either. And I'm still not. I never thought about watching it on ESwindow. But I do. I loved the strawberry tank with sweet potato, I loved the lava rock fall with all the creatures. It's so relaxing. And the music. I'm not a big fan but I love it together with your videos. I think I know what I'll do watch it all. I'll start again. Well done.

I can't describe how beautiful your tanks are, I really would like to have a tank too, but (when I had) my fishes didn't live so long :( Thank you for sharing. Greetings from Mexico City

  • Foo The Flowerhorn, can you please enlighten me what type of lid you created for yourself and how you cut out holes in it!? Is it plexiglass, polycarbonate or glass? What thickness is it? What tools are necessary to cut free-form shapes as you have for the plants? Additionally, what parts do you have on the edges on the aquarium that seem to hold the lod in place? Thanks!

    Michael LarsonMichael LarsonHace un año
    • Yes, I have discovered the plexi glass is not ideal because of the absorption of water and wrapping. I have yet to look into acrylic as an option but it may be that glass is the only option that will work the best and look the best. Thankfully I have a friend who is more handy than I so cutting glass may be possible. I will see and let you know once it's done!

      Michael LarsonMichael LarsonHace 11 meses
    • @Foo the Flowerhorn Thank you for responding! Appreciate it a lot!

      Michael LarsonMichael LarsonHace 11 meses
    • eswindow.info/call/lWaOjoJ7x3yqsKc/v-deo.html I used diamond hole saws. The link's in the description of the video above. The lids are glass, 5mm thick. You could also make the lids with PC, but I wouldn't do it with plexiglass, b/c plexi can warp/sag after a while. Cutting glass is easy, but drilling can be pretty hard. You should watch bunch of videos on drilling glass on youtube and try it on spare glass before attempting. If you can get PC, I would use that instead. It's much easier to work with. Aquarium lid clips come in many different sizes. You gotta find one that is the right thickness for your tank.
