Look forward to seeing how this goes.
Thanks! TBH, I went off today came back and for some reason I thought that it would be nice and grown... Yeah, didn't really happen, although I really never expected it too
Looks like you're off to a good start, should be successful.
I have almost the exact setup.. for the first month I had issues with film forming on the water surface and had to skim it every couple of days. Since then it has been almost no maintenance and plants are super happy
Look forward to seeing it filled out.
Great to know! I'll be sure to skim if there is film. How long did it take for it to show up? I just want to know when to expect it
And that's really sweet that we have similar set ups! Do you have any pictures? I'd love to see it.
Just me personally I would fill it with more substrate to make it easyer to see with a round bowl you want the gravel line to be near the widest part on the bowl
Yeah, I'll probably put a bit more sand in there, I just don'e want to fill it up to much in the event I get shrimp they do need somewhere to go! But, thanks for the input, I'll be sure to do that.

It should be. My room keeps about 68F-70F year round which is warm enough for shrimp. They're great in "colder" water.
Good but I hate bowls bcoz you can scape it only once the next time while you wish to scape Water comes out!!!
Good going all d best

I know, I put my hand in right after I filled it and it spilled... should have known better:/ But I don't think that I'll do too much scaping (or at least that's what I'm thinking now...).
Thanks everyone for your input! I'm really excited to see how this tank turns out
Ah, it needs to grow!
