I love the bowl! How's the light on that thing, will it keep the plants alive?
It will do alright with low light plants. I'd recommend placing it in a sunny spot if you want more than moss, anubias and java fern though.
My boss does seem interested in planted tanks, she even told me I should go into business putting them together for people. I'm flattered but I'm still very much in the learning stages myself. If someone asked me for a high-tech tank with CO2 and ferts I wouldn't really even know where to start.
I'm hoping that I can slowly get our store to show people how nice natural tanks are and supply something other than neon gravel and plastic decorations.
