TwiLightLi Posted December 19, 2018 Report Share Posted December 19, 2018 This summer, a Back to the Roots Water Garden with a Betta (Winston, named after my cousin’s dog) led to an aquarium rabbit hole that I haven’t escaped. My 7yo talked me into a zebra nerite (Perry Pail, because that rhymes with snail) on one of our weekly trips to the LFS this summer (he likes to feed the koi there). I was not prepared for how much snails poop! Research told me that the Water Garden was pretty small and poorly shaped for a Betta, so I got him a 5gal and left Perry to fertilize the water garden on his own. Research also told me that I probably needed some Amano shrimp (obviously), since they were big enough that Winston couldn’t eat them. Roger, Roger, and Flip (named after the boy and dog in Richard Scarry’s Things That Go, with two Rogers because the 4yo copied his brother). Even though the new guys were too big for Winston to eat, he would not stop pestering them. This seemed grossly unfair, so the shrimp moved to the Water Garden and Perry moved to the 5gal with Winston. Shrimporama 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
