Since I'm only using Taiwan moss, there's very minimal lighting requirement. I put the cube in front of my window in my dorm.
Moss will do fine with office lighting too, though it won't particularly thrive.

Thanks. I actually have a semi-opaque curtain in front of my window, so lighting should be too minimal for an algae problem.

I have thought about it! I think the cube might be even too small for shrimp though.. It's only 18 fluid oz, small thing-

If you ever get algae then 1 Nerite snail.

Bc 1 pond snail will turn into many pond snails.

Not sure how it compares in volume, but I've got three juvie cherry shrimp culls in a planted 4" diameter (3"high) round stemmed glass that are happily munching and molting away alongside a couple pond snails.

Haha, maybe I'll bring one pond snail. Hopefully I don't accidentally bring a pregnant female though LOL.

Oh hey, those dimensions are only slightly bigger than mine!
Hmmm, I may actually look into shrimp more.

Finally got a picture uploaded of my wineglass shrimp tank. It's been up for a little over two weeks now and all three cherry shrimp are thriving; doubled in size, successfully molted and super active.

This has xmas moss, dwarf baby tears and frogbit.

Oh nice! What kind of lighting are you using over it for the baby tears?
Also, guess I need to find somewhere to get a cheap shrimp... LOL. Now you're really making me think about shrimp!

If you are in the So Cal area this Saturday, there is a SCAPE meeting in Anaheim. They have an auction and its a great place to get some shrimp on the cheap!

Indirect lighting from a north facing window a couple feet away.

Hmm you could try a single cherry shrimp. They're tough as nails, id just to be sure to add a little duckweed to absorb a lot of the waste. Cool cube though, i used to have a bowl and i loved it. I shouldnt have taken it down. I had a few guppies in there too when it matured.
