13th Month Update - (The Battle of Driftwood) NO filter, NO CO2, NO Ferts 5 Gallon Nano Tank
This is 13th month update. The fish are called Sparking or Pygmy gourami. WARNING- LIVE AQUARIUM FISH- MAY BE OFFENSIVE TO SOME.

The addition of driftwood caused chain of events that were unforeseen. One gourami really liked the driftwood and decided to make it his. He guarded it from all other gouramis but let the shrimp use it. Two original gouramis became sick from not being able to eat very much b/c the alpha gourami that guarded the driftwood drove all of the other gouramis away. I tried to feed the whole tank, but other gouramis were hiding deep in the plants most of the time and would not come out to eat. So the original gouramis resorted to eating the shrimp. The shrimp population in this tank has plummeted quite a bit. I think eating too many live shrimp made them sick. One got pop eye, and another internal parasites. They were moved to a hospital tank, but they did not recover. I decided not to include the footage in this video.
