I'm afraid I can't yet
say that I've figured out how to take a passable photo through glass.
But life in the aquarium is otherwise going swimmingly.

two minnows and one caddisfly larva were soon joined by ten tiny
tadpoles (who they promptly ate) and seven snails (who got busy
cleaning the glass). And Friday I figured out why one of the minnows
has a tremendous belly --- that fish finally learned that flakes on the
surface are yummy and is now eating them as quickly as they appear.
Chemically, the pH is
still high (8.0), but the biological filter is obviously doing its job
well because there's barely any ammonia and no nitrite or nitrate in
the water despite daily feedings. Perhaps I should add a few more fish?
