We put that rule in for the health and well being of the critters. Personally I find neither of those especially exciting or interesting, and with the hydra, I'd be irritated that it exists in any of my tanks at all.

Adopt one today!

Re: A mini tank contest!

As said if you don't want to do it, its fine, but please don't knock it because everyone else will abide by the rules set forth.

If you stop and think about it, there is rotifers on all plants so no getting around that. Hydra is something I wouldn't want to deal with with in any of my tanks even a small one like that.

The no live concept pertains to fish, shrimp and snails. If you want to put a hydra in it, go for it. They aren't even good fish food for most fish.

Re: A mini tank contest!

Maybe he's one of those guys that don't like living with rules? Idk, either way I'm pretty sure the rules are set for specidic reasons.

if the pieces that i cut were alittle bit bigger, it would have looked really good, but it was all over the place on this tank, just not on the viewing spaces.

Re: A mini tank contest!

I have a half gallon aquasaurs kit, but need to work on it, It may be done in a few days. It's right under the limit. 2 liters is 0.52of a gallon.

I hope you enjoyed my post
