Kind of a continuation of my nano tank recommendation thread, here's what we have going on Day 1: Fluval Shrimp and Plant Substrate Dwarf Lily Bulb Java Moss patch we stitched to a plastic mesh on the back wall. Water has been added gently (its still rather filthy). I have a couple of questions for the vets: 1) I put a root tab in the substrate under the bulb, should I also give it EZ-green? 2) Is there a particular food that is useful for "Ghost Feeding" to get the tank cycling, or should I just use what I have that is the cheapest? 3) We plan on stocking shrimp (Caridina variety, not cherries), but we would like some nano fish ideas. We don't really want to go with another betta, we were originally going with Zebra Danios (to go with Tangerine Tiger shrimp for a Safari theme) but my fear is they need more room to swim. We've considered Celestial Pearl Danios so far, but I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks for all the help, and I'll update the thread as this tank comes together.
After someone, I think @ARMYVET (maybe) mentioned a vase with a snail in it, I am obsessed with this idea. I have a sister in law that just really wants a snail, and I am trying to think of a good set up... but I have questions. 1. What kind of snail would live best in a 1 gallon-ish vase? 2. What kind of plants would do well in there? 3. Would it need a lid? 4. What about air stone? How does it do gas exchange? I would like to get it all set up and present it as a finished product for her, so I would welcome any and all suggestions....
