This is my latest aquarium experiment. The goal was to collect all local, all natural things. The filtration is extremely simple and natural.

My initial plan was to make this quasi self-sustaining. I did it wrong. I think I would have had to have maybe 50% of it be mud and plant growth. As it is currently, it is mainly just a big fancy tank for my crawdad. I feed him algae wafers and he’ll run to grab them as they fall. He’s feisty.

I’m ok with that, but the lack of plants is somewhat sad. My other tanks are giant green monsters, literally overflowing with plants.
