You wanted to know what to use for the background - I suggested a picture of a snowstorm, since it is a COLDwater tank Very Happy

Hahaha! Okay, I get it now. What about a iceberg? Haha. It won't be that cold, any way...

Today I got a package in the mail, opened it and found 8 WCMM in it (in any other way would be somewhat creepy...)

Thanks again Jacko!

In the bag:



Out and free:

Hey congratulations, they look great! I was just going to ask when you were expecting them. Smile

Every time I see that branch you have in there I like it even more... Where did you get it?

Hey thanks! Due to them looking great, that is all to Jacko; he is the one that bred them Wink

Right next to a river about 15 miles away from my house. Also as you may have noticed, this piece is the same piece that was in my 55g (which I have yet to fix Rolling Eyes)

A past due update:



As you will notice, there is more sand than before, that is because there was hardly any to plant any plants.
I am going to be getting some DIY CO2 on the tank, I took off the HOB filter also, added a background, and planted some pennywort, water sprite and Mexican oak leaf, I think I am going to do a ricca carpet in this tank like I did with my 10g. I am having trouble with diatoms, what can I do to fix that? I am getting macro and micro ferts here soon, will that help?

More pictures:

I have like 7 pond snails in the tank, I like them right now, just once I get a couple hundred I think I will have a problem, but by then I will have a bunch of assassin snails in my other tanks so I can feed them these guys.


A male and a really fat female (or it has eggs which have I yet to see any scattered)



Note how there is no background in this photo or the one before



This tank is turning out to be one of my favorites, and cheapest.

Total cost spent:
Tank - Free
Rocks and driftwood - Free
Filter - $15
Plants - $15
Fish - $15
Sand - Free
Lights - Free (got it a long time ago and have used them for starting tomatoes in the spring, I think a friend gave it to us)
Total- $45

Cool

Quite a neat set-up. White Clouds are very under-rated, in my opinion and practically 'tough as nails'. I still have two from four years ago in one of my tropical tanks. They just swim and swim and are always content.
Would phosphate removing material help with the diatoms? No doubt DIY C02 will reduce them I would imagine.
