This was the most difficult tank I’ve ever setup b/c I had to choose only foreground and short plants that would do well without CO2 and without dosing fertilizers. The volcano filter is working surprisingly well even though it went through algae problems initially. There are still algae on it, but it has slowed quite a bit.
The shrimp and tetras were getting along fine and did very well. The reason I waited 10 days before adding a betta was to see if the tetras were all healthy before adding a betta. Feeding them live brine shrimp along with flakes really made them recover faster from being shipped and put into a new tank. Also, I didn’t want to put the betta in first, b/c if the betta established its territory first, he might go after the tetras a lot more.
Adding a betta into this mix is risky. He is a chirpy little fellow, and I’m a little worried about the shrimp, especially. He has tried to catch the tetras here and there, but soon realized that there is absolutely no chance of him catching one.
When I moved, I had to take the entire tank apart, and I did end up putting back the pump sponge that I had forgotten during the setup. The pump really needed the sponge b/c there were baby snails stuck in the intake.
I’m finally getting back into the swing of things. There were million things that needed to be done when I moved. I’ll probably try to upload more often soon.
There were literally maybe 3 or 4 duckweed when I first bought the azolla. Then the 3 or 4 duckweed became hundreds in no time. All of the azolla disappeared. The shrimp ate some for sure, but I also think allelopathy was part of it. Duckweed vs. azolla - duckweed wins, it seems.
Most of the expensive plants didn’t do well. Some were hanging on, but when I added the shrimp, the weak plants were all eaten.
The plants in this tank now:
Micro sword amzn.to/301YQHl - Barely hanging on after 3 months. Did not die, but stalled mostly.
Pygmy chain sword amzn.to/2HWhfyS - It stayed very short and small, but they have sent out a few runners here and there. It’s surviving.
Glosso amzn.to/2LFAVbn - Some didn’t make it, but some are also doing well. The ones that made it have sent out 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 pretty well. It is a slow grower it seems.
Ricciocarpos natans - It’s doing very well. It’s pretty much perfect. The shrimp do not mess with it mostly.
This is a Walstad Method tank. Check out her book in the link below if interested. The book I read to make this aquarium:

  • I'm sure the beta is long since named (Jan 2020 video posted, May 2021 I replied). But I choose Red Baron. Because of his red color with white & black markings. Just seems fitting.

  • For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23) For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:26) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)

  • I know some time has passed but I am reminded of 'Tron Legacy' with the fish, unique and almost digitally but personally resonate. I would have named the fish ISO Beta or even Quorra which would have been the last ISO or the last of her kind which only represents a small part of a big picture..
