Four New Mice
|Pet Project 365 83/365|
We were beginning to have some fertility issues with our original mouse colony, so I decided it was time to "switch out". We got one new male mouse and three new female mice. The male is a gorgeous merle, two of the females are orange with some white, and one female is a PEW(pink-eyed white). The male went into a tank with all of our original females, and the females went into a tank with all of our original males. So far, we have no new babies.
Two New Marimo Moss Balls
These things are pretty cool. They prefer low(although still some) light conditions and high water flow. We bought the lowest wattage bulb we could, and put them right underneath the filter. So far, they aren't doing bad.. But they aren't doing great, either. I'm crossing my fingers. We've had back luck with plants thus far.
What the lights did help was green algae. Then, after we cleaned the green algae, brown algae started growing. You can't use algae killers with Marimo moss balls because they actually are a species of algae - under normal conditions, they grow out on surfaces like normal algae. Read more about them here.
