Timeline

Introduction

20 gallon hard water, low tech planted tank. Mainly stocked with various Sulawesi inverts, and planning a possible Sulawesi biotope* of sorts in the future if I'm able to get ahold of some celebes rice fish and another variety or two of shrimp. For now this tank also houses a number of species of nerites as well as a school of spotted blue eye rainbows.
*(Hard water plants from that area seem to be nigh impossible get so I might fudge that with some plain old anubias)
I have a particular passion for tylomelania rabbit snails and currently keep a number of species/strains, and am working on matching the varieties in the aquarium trade to their proper species names. Which is surprisingly difficult given how little accurate literature is out there.

I'm not sure what to do about feeding the pseudomugils. I cut back the frozen foods because it always triggers a breeding frenzy which ends in the males harassing all the females to death. But it's so
New friend? Little amphipod guy just zipping around the tank. No idea where it came from but it seems to be friendly so I suppose I'll let him stick around. I kept thinking I saw something moving over
Hob Gadling, Toothbrush, and Duma have joined the hutch! Goober has friends! (Also put the tetra HOB on because there's too much debris sitting around :P)
Made snail-o last night!
Broccoli, spinach, spirulina, brine shrimp, NLS, invert flakes, cuttlebone, and a dash of paprika. The fish LOVE it, Goober seems to be enjoying too
Three juvie rabbits have been ordered! 1/4-1/2 in long oh my god. Should be here by the end of the week
Plants I bought from snakefarm were supposed to be here this morning, but fedex hasn't checked it in since it left Providence... The cycled sponge filter in there may not make it an extra day :/ hopef
