Here is a really quick video of most of the new ladies that are members of my new sorority. This is just an observation tank and I will be posting a longer video in a few weeks, once I figure out where I plan on putting them permanently. They have done fairly well so far, with a few still showing some stress markings, but other than the markings they seem to be settling in nicely. This is a video of water being siphoned out of the tank and there is an empty snail shell in the siphon. The girls went absolutely bonkers trying to get to it. Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.
Alright. I FINALLY got around taking a halfway decent photo of the community tank and also got an 8 minute long video of me messing around with the tank and the betta girls messing with me The cabomba shrunk a lot because I failed to realize just how much light the floating plants (duckweed, water lettuce, frogbit, riccia natans, hornwort) were blocking out. Initially I thought the shop light was a piece of poopoo and going dim, but then I saw what was really going on. I skimmed off 80% of the small floating plants and fed it to the goldis, moved some of the hornwort out to them as well, and now the tank is nice and bright again. I still got quite a few stems of cabomba so I am certain it will recover if I keep the water surface clear enough Anyway, here's a few pics and a rather long video of the betta girls. Don't even bother turning up the volume - unless you want to listen to the audio of Vanilla Sky "Full tank shot". As always, crappily photoshopped together Some closeups of plants. I had two anubias flower (see top left corner in the first following photo) and the vals are growing wonderfully. A bit too much algae on the anubias but that might be due to the fact that I got the lights on about 15 hours a day. No joke. This here is interesting. It is cabomba, topped with java ferns, topped with hornwort, topped with various floating plants. It's like a bizarre sculpture And, last but by no means least:
