I just looked at the video of your tank, Mikaila 31, you have oak leaves on the bottom and floating in the tank?? Is that for the shrimp? Do you collect them in the fall or what? Please explain their use etc.

Yes collect leaves in the fall. They are more just for looks and to entertain the fish and shrimps a bit. They float at first then sink after a few days. Like most objects in the tank they will grow a biofilm that shrimp and some fish like to eat. Sparklers like them when they are floating.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk
