A macaw takes to the sea

Well after dreaming about it for months and thinking that I would refresh my hand with the fresh side of life - that has gone well (now got 3 freshwater tanks !) I have dived into the salty stuff!

Having initially thought about a nano, then a 300+ltr sumped tank have got a nano for now and will get a bigger tank when extended the house! Currently a (mature) student so that maytake a little time .

Anyway one betta nano tank is now sitting in the house, salty water in, rock and sand. The rock has gone in in two stages as the LFS had some nice bits but they were all HUGE (knew that I should have got a bigger tank) so did another run this morning. Sort of scaped but just have this feeling that it will all get pulled out and rearranged again once I can see through the murk that the sand has created .

Pics will follow anon- when I can find something in there to take photos of!!

Hi Nonie

Exciting times ahead, What have you planned to keep? i,m sure the aquascape will be fine when it all settles.
And don,t forget the picture,s once the sand has settled!

The shape is starting to appear out of the gloom so maybe pics later - there are also small beasties in there - lots of little white starfish with long legs and small bodies - possibly bristles of some kind? Something that looks like a slug, some shrimpy things and something that ran around !

Sounds like Brittle stars, poss Stomatella snails, copepods and a greyhound.

Rather a greyhound than the cat of mine!

Will now have a go at uploading some pics of my gloom!







Under all of that murk is some nicely coloured (coralline) rock!

Beasties to follow (maybe)
