Ep.14 Peppermint Betta Tank (Attack of Cyanobacteria) No filter, No CO2, NO ferts Nano Tank

Kartoffel is a wild betta species called Mahachai betta. The lettuce started out strong, then ended up withering away. I can only guess that it’s probably b/c of from lack of nutrients. I added regular duckweed, and it also would not grow. I think adding the pearl grass made other plants not grow very well. It probably sucks up too much nutrients from the tank.
The bumblebee nerite didn’t make it through the cyano phase of this tank. It wasn’t the slime stain remover’s fault. I was going to add another nerite, but I didn’t want it to get harassed by Kartoffel either. The bumblebee rarely came out because of Kartoffel the entire time.
A snail egg must have been in one of the duckweed that I added from Dante’s tank. That same type of snail has spread like wildfire in there. Interestingly, Kartoffel never messes with it.
Peppermint is doing great for now. Only time will tell if they’ll end up like the lettuce.

(*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.)

  • Why do you say no CO2? During the day plants breath in CO2. Breathe out oxygen. At night they breathe in oxygen, breathe out CO2. Light + plants = photosynthesis. No fertilizer? What comes out of snail and fish? Fertilizer. Plants - ammonia uptake from fish and snail excreta.

  • I think the light is too strong for most plants in your tank. The red leave edges on the strawberries and the blisters on the lettuce indicate that.
