My happy little farm

Well I have one tank that has become the Ark or is trying to. Here is the list of everything I know of right now in my 10 galon farm:

Copopods
Nematodes
Snails
Limpets
Ramshorn Snails
Pond Snails
Water Fleas
Hydras
Some new kind of 1/4 inch white worm
Oh and I actually have some fish in there too!

And that's all I know I have, for the time being anyway.

I wish I could but the littlew things are so small I should have named this topic:

My happy microscopic farm! lol

The hydras are only 1/16-1/8 inch at the most and transparent. The copopods are tiny, The worm has vanished. It is just almost impossible to get picks of anything but the snails, and the fish. There is a picture of my tank in the freshwater pictures section but I doubt you will ever see the microscopic stuff.

My only little farm is a pond full of pond snails and occasionally, dragonfly nymphs.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

If you have a microscope, take a little of the leaf litter or mulm off the bottom and put it under the microscope. I will bet you have alot more in there than you think. I would even venture you have some water beetles and other cool critters in there from time to time.

Forgot the water boatmen. Bloodworms as well. No mosquito larva though as my fish chomped them anyway.
