id consider stop smashing them snails and move this out of the natural sunlight

It is better to travel well than to arrive.

I've moved it inside, it now has a 6500k desk lamp on it. Any suggestions for beginner emergent plants?

Noticed the water is cloudy, and a bunch more algae growth. Some green, some white strands? My wife says the white strands are worms, and I do have some beetle/etc larvae living in there.

Huge plant growth, though - everything seems to be doing really well. Any ideas why the water would be so cloudy?

90% water change - water is clear again, for now. Could it be something rotting inside the jar that's clouding it?

Done a bunch of water changes and started dosing with Excel. Got an Assassin snail for the snail population, but the plants seem to be doing good regardless.
