I have a four to five gallon fish tank that I’m turning into a nature aquarium!
There are rocks and pebbles at the bottom and a stick or two. So far the only living thing is some Common Duckweed and maybe some algee. If more algee grows than I would like to add some tadpoles (and release them once they grow up).
What should I add next? I love both plants and insects! Would prefer not to have to give them a lot of work or buy anything. And it would be nice if they are native to Idaho so if the population gets to big than I can dump some into a local pond.
It is near a window where it gets medium light, but not direct sunlight. The temperature should typically range between 60-70 F*, though it might sometimes get down to the 50s when we’re on vacation. I have a screen that can go over the top.
Looking for ideas and aquarium-keeping tips!
