Thanks for the suggestions! I was really just packing these bowls with as much plant life as I had available, to see what would work and what wouldn't.
All of the pennywort melted, and most of the frogbit died in one bowl (but not the other). The amazon sword (which was attached to the moss rock) also melted, will see if new growth emerges.
Added some dwarf water lettuce to replace the floaters, removed some of the cabomba that had wilted/shed leaves. I have some packages of plants arriving from members here, but haven't arrived yet.
I did get my wood in! Still deciding which pieces to put together and letting them soak to sink. Have semi-temporary setups now while I decide.
Had to move one of my halfmoon bettas to a bowl as the stress of a divided setup was causing him to bite his beautiful fins. Spades, my black betta, took his place in the Death Valley slot of my 10 gallon.
Still don't have the lighting set up. Been using 13w daylight CF in a clip-on reflector from a considerable distance to discourage algae. I have some high spectrum LEDs which I plan to silicone to the glass covers and provide the nice white light from above.
