    Help Pest Infested Hornwort

    That’s a great point, my boyfriend is an environmental scientist, so that’s been drilled into me and is now my first concern. I definitely won’t flush it or put it down the drain. I make sure all of my clippings are disposed of responsibly since I’m in Cali and they may survive year round! In...

    Help Pest Infested Hornwort

    I’m a bit of a baby, and I would have a hard time killing them. Although, I do think bleach dip would be the easiest for me. That said the last thing I want to do is flush them or release them because I don’t want to mess with the local ecology. Anyone want free hornwort and pest snails...

    Help Pest Infested Hornwort

    Okay so I ordered hornwort from aquatic arts about a month ago, but when it got here I noticed it looked strange. There were random globs of unidentified randomness on it so I decided to take a .5 gal mason jar I had around and stick it in there for awhile to “quarantine” it but I really know...

    1 Gallon Tank Jarrariums As Gifts?

    Thanks that’s good to know! I just did some googling and they actually look a bit more like bladder snails to me, so I don’t know if that makes a difference or not! I may just not get the ghost shrimp in that case, I’ll have to sit on it for a bit. I don’t think they would overpopulate too...

    1 Gallon Tank Jarrariums As Gifts?

    Thank you guys! I think all of us need one for our desks A great use of trimmings if you ask me! Also, I bought some hornwort from aquatic arts awhile back but it didn’t look right to me so I set it in a .5 gallon mason jar with some untreated tap water. Just looked today and noticed 4...

    1 Gallon Tank Jarrariums As Gifts?

    Here’s some pictures of how they turned out! The big one for my mom still needs to clear up, and I’ll probably fiddle with them a little more, but I like them so far!

    1 Gallon Tank Jarrariums As Gifts?

    Yeah honestly I didn’t think of that and that is really scary. It would be horribly ironic if I contributed to betta abuse with how much it p***es me off. I’ll probably write in the card that they can add some life if they want, but that only shrimp or small snails would be suitable! Now off I...

    1 Gallon Tank Jarrariums As Gifts?

    Thank you, that’s a great idea! I might even try to find a cute tiny jar for the fertilizer for aesthetics. Thank you! I love that rock too! And this one was just thrown together out of boredom! I would get a bigger one with a better looking jar (so you can see inside better) and I would...

    1 Gallon Tank Jarrariums As Gifts?

    I was bored last night and decided to start a jarrarium with some extra rock and plants I had. Anyone else have one of these? I’d love to see some pics! Also, I’m thinking of giving a couple of them as gifts. I’m graduating in a couple weeks and I was thinking my thesis advisor would...

    Funny Found An Absolutely Awesome Angerboi.

    Lol I vibe so hard with the boyfriend being passive-aggressive about the betta tanks. I have slowly worn mine down from no second tank, to no bigger than 5 gallons for the second tank, then finally to the 9 gallons I really wanted. I was basically like “I’m graduating college with honors, I...

    Rescaping My Uns 45u (dsm)

    Thanks for all the help! I’m definitely going to do some more research before I decide what I want to with the tank. I like a challenge, but would prefer not to fail miserably.

    Rescaping My Uns 45u (dsm)

    Oh gosh... I was planning on about 60% uns contrasoil for the plants but I also want some sand, because I want some pygmy cories. For a light I’m thinking of the 450ea twinstar but still don’t know if that’s overkill or not. Plant-wise I’m open minded but like the Dutch look and definitely...

    Rescaping My Uns 45u (dsm)

    Ugh, I know you’re right and I hate it. Lol All good things take time I suppose. I already have chronic migraines so I probably should do my best to avoid unnecessary headaches! How long did it take to dry start the Monte Carlo before you could immerse it? (Sorry if that’s obvious from the...

    Rescaping My Uns 45u (dsm)

    Honestly, I respect your patience so much but I am probably one of the least patient beings on planet earth. If I got my tank set up and had to wait any longer than absolutely necessary to get my new betta I would probably explode (hence why I’ve been prepping extra media in my tank to speed up...
