My small Walstad bowl for the office

So I really fell in love with the Walstad bowls here and decided I needed one at my desk. I went to Michaels and bought a small bowl and a wood "plaque" for the base. I already had the light from ikea and the plants came from my 55 gal. The assembly was actually very easy, but I would stress that when putting the sand in, dry is way better for capping the potting soil because wet sand is so heavy the dirt gets tougher to cover effectively without squishing out from under the sand. I need to decide on a few more plants, right now I have jungle Val and purple Cambomba. Eventually if the bowl fills out, a shrimp might go in to provide some movement, it's a small bowl, less than a gallon so i need some advice on if even one shrimp would be too much...

And the pics
