Oase “Living Waters” biOrb LIFE (45 L)


We run a ‘peaceful community tank’ with a blend of plants and animals that (are supposed to and mostly do) live harmoniously together.

Aquarium as of 6-June-2021

Notes: put in a new row of Cryptocoryne lutea ‘Hobbit’.  some new leaves on the Anubias nana ‘Pinto’.  cleaned the inside of the bubble tube with a bottle brush
