Avalus has a new project on the go and he’s sharing with us.
I am putting together a new aquarium (I love caring for/looking at fish*) and while it develops, it is habitat to a whole load of daphnia and a few small ramshorn snails (German: Posthornschnecke, lit. postal horn snail with ‘horn’ as in fanfare, the musical instrument) to monitor water conditions.
I used this to experiment with photographing small things with my phone via a cheap plastic jewelers magnifying glass. Opportunity arose, when this small snail went by the front pane.
(*and plants and snails and shrimps and algae** …)
(** This year I’ll find you, Volvox!)
Thanks, Avalus. I think fish tanks are fascinating and I would very much like to see more of the process of creating a new aquarium. If any of you are also interested please leave a message for Avalus. Perhaps we can encourage him to share the ongoing project and maybe even some already established tanks.
