The Last Episode (Teardown + The Entire Series in One Video)
This is the entire series in one video and the ending. I felt like I’ve reached the end of this tank’s journey. Moving twice in the last 2 years, and moving to a place with old pipes was too hard on this tank.
I re-edited the entire series. I was just going to stitch the videos together, but I found a typo here and there. For example I said “it was like groundhug day” when I meant groundhog day.
I did have to change some of the music, b/c you know, youtube.
Most of the plants you see at the end are pearl grass, hornwort, and guppy grass.
I did feed the tank with a little bit of fish flakes every day. That’s why the plants were still healthy when I tore down the tank. There were some shrimp still living, and most of them were transferred to the volcano tank. All of the hair grass melted b/c they couldn’t get any light. I was really surprised to see that so many plants still did well when I stopped trimming them. While re-editing the videos, I got to take the journey of this tank again. When I first started this series, I remembered having lowkey fun doing youtube videos. This is a simple channel. My little sandbox, if you will. A little corner of the shallow end of the pool where I dip my legs in and read a book or something. But as the months went by, more and more people came in and it became something much bigger than I would have ever imagined. Most people were so nice and made me feel overwhelmed, since I’m just an ordinary guy. Then there were those who reached out b/c they wanted something from me. It would take several hours for me to tell you all the horror stories pertaining to this channel. I don’t think you would believe me. My brother’s wife’s sister’s best friend contacted me when she realized this channel’s sub count number, b/c she wanted a free consultation for her youtube channel.
Anyhow, this was too long already. I saved the plants for future projects.
Curry is doing well these days. She still eats and drinks on her own. We still feed her medicine and water four times a day.
Hindsight is always 20/20. Some of the decisions I made with this tank were super hard, and I tried to make the best decision I could at the time. For example, figuring out how to remove a tiny fish in a heavily planted tank without destroying the tank. That idea took me two days to come up with it. You can see that at 17:56
