11 Months Update - (Peace and Balance) NO filter, NO CO2, NO Ferts 5 Gallon Nano Tank


11 Months Update - (Peace and Balance) NO filter, NO CO2, NO Ferts 5 Gallon Nano Tank

Video Channel: Foo the Flowerhorn

This is 11th month update. The fish are called Sparkling or Pygmy gourami.
The first leaf was boiled baby cabbage. The second leaf feeding was boiled spinach. The trick is to boil the leaf for 10 minutes or so, so that the leaf is very soft for the shrimp to tear it easily.

Everything’s in a pretty good balance. The fish are peaceful toward each other. The shrimp are doing fine. The plants are at an optimum health and growth. I really like that the grass has filled up nicely. The hair grass took really long time for it to get to this point.
