i wanted a small low tech community planted tank.
So, I have a 30cm cube tank running little over 3 months now.
I am keeping,
Fishes & Invertebrates:
8 neon tetra, 4 amano shrimp, red cherry shrimps (started with 6 now 20+) and few unknown snails that came with the plants(never thought of removing them)
lot of Duckweed covering almost the whole surface, some java moss, small patch of mini pellia, few steams of what i think as Bacopa caroliniana, 4 stems of java fern and few stems of the plant that is similar as in the attached pic(want to know the name).
It is a low tech tank with a DIY LED light setup.
I initially had a sun sun internal filter with 400 l/h flow rate. As i saw the shrimps carrying eggs i changed it with a sponge filter.
Substrate is a mix of 70% ADA amazonia and 30% aquaclay.
plants, fishes and shrimps are fine, the shrimps are making baby shrimps like crazy, even the neons are laying eggs on wall and the plants.
I want to setup a breeding tank for the neons but having second thoughts of not to, Because of the work(i am wounding how hard it could be)
I usually feed them 2 times either with hikari micro pellets or tetra bits complete (a bit above average) and do 50% water change every Wednesday.
I have never done any water testing, i don't even have a heater.(want to know if it is a must, i am in Bangalore)
forgive me for the long story. The issue is,
Today I noticed a fuzzy white web like stuff on the substrate and on the wood.
I have no photo of my tank but attaching some similar photo from google image search.
Could someone tell what is this? and how to get it out of my tank.
also want to know what is the average lifespan of a beta.
