I'm using a 2.5 gallon tank (bought for five bucks Canadian at a local clearance sale), decorative aquarium gravel and Life brand distilled water. Found below are a few pictures of the progress.
Everything I needed to get set up:
Tank with substrate added:
With added water and detritus teabag:
And here are my eggs!
They're tiny and out of focus but I ... *cough* love them.
They should hatch in the next day or so. I'll post a new update when something exciting happens.
