It looks like you are doing very well with that tank. I hope the water clears up some more with time. I like having a filter on my tanks, just to keep the water clear, but I know El Natural tanks don't usually have filters.

Hello Hoppy ! Thank for your words. I do have a filter in that tank. But im using it without any filtration purpouse, just for water circulation.

When i started it, i put some some filtration material for clarification purpouse.

Again, thank for your kind words,
Leonardo!

That cleared up very well, and it looks great! Does the Betta get along with the other fish, without attacking them, or being attacked.

Hello all, happy New year to everyone!

It's been a long half and a month since my last update. Some weird things happened.

Just a month ago, my Betta, got acidic or alkaline illness. I put him into a fresh water jar with Aloe vera, so he is healthy again.

The smallest ones died. But rams and otos, didn't show any signal of doing some process of illness. Since then, they're all doing fine. I put three guppies from the other aquarium. By now all doing perfect.

But, news came again few days ago. I saw my rams, doing holes. I thought, damn, water will touch dirt directly. So I started looking very close at rams behavior.

For my surprise today I saw very very tiny ram fry.

So, I'm a new grandfather. And this is a report for breeding rams inside a Walstad tank it's possible.

Have everyone and exciting and wondering new 2019.

Yours, Leonardo
