>as if technological development inevitably progresses on rails

This is a very valid criticism as long as you also keep in mind that many technologies are necessary precursors to others. For instance, good luck developing decent weapon and tool alloys without fire, and you're definitely going to need decent metallurgy do develop electrical communication or computation systems.

One of the big things I see is technologies that are developed for no reason, especially stone tools and cooking in animals with sufficient natural weapons and a long evolutionary history of carnivory.

I've also seen some really dumb stuff like developing underwater trains to move goods between small islands.

How do you feel about how Snaiad does it?

>How do you feel about how Snaiad does it?
That's actually what I had in mind and I'm not a fan. Having the senses spread out over two heads for no good reason doesn't seem advantageous at all. Especially the idea of having one mouth for chewing and another mouth for swallowing. What's the logic?
>>
>>3663351
It's just way overdone, and not a particularly original idea. I've seen the two concepts you mentioned multiple times from different people. Fantasy as a subject for spec bio has been sucked dry.

>Having the senses spread out over two heads for no good reason doesn't seem advantageous at all.
Did you consider the evolutionary history of the organisms though? The routing of the recurrent laryngeal nerve in tetrapods is really stupid but we're stuck with it.

>Especially the idea of having one mouth for chewing and another mouth for swallowing.
That's not how it works in most cases, and using appendages to pass food to the mouth is quite common in life on Earth.

>Tank size (include dimensions, not just volume)
>Parameters (ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, pH, GH, KH)
>Any inhabitants + how long you've had them
>Pictures are always helpful

I added a new replacement cartridge and polyfil in red this saturday. I kept the sponge filter in green and one buried at the bottom of the filter and pulled a clump from the old cartridge and buried it in the poly fil. The water still looks a little milky. I understand that whiteness is a bacterial bloom, but is it the same beneficial bacteria? Why does it bloom? I tested the ammonia yesterday and there was nothing.

It floats, is really light, and sticks everywhere, when you water it's all eventually gonna rise to the top. Pumice or decomposed granite are better alternatives if you can find them.
