plan B is too keep the bowl and bring it along in the move. Also I would add some A grade crystals to the bowl to keep the two SS females company.

I saw a baby shrimp in the bowl today. unfortunately i only see one right now, so my hopes aren't really that high that he will make it, but at least I finally got one of the females to have babies in the bowl haha.

Next payday and after the summer is over, I'll make my moss bowl into an official shrimp bowl with the addition of some fire reds.

well its safe to put it in a room or at a window that never gets direct light or sun shining into it. My bowl stands in my room which has a window that always only get indirect sunlight because the house blocks the sun. I hope that video isn't too discouraging to anyone out there, and doesn't stop people from setting up shrimp bowls lol. its just takes a little bit of planning to make the bowl safe from the death rays of the sun

If it's packed full like Newman's, there's no worries.

There will be no discouragement, only useful warning of what might happen lol
I did not think about this prior to you alerting us, thanks!

I am getting rid of all the plants in my 40 gallon planted tank. If you want some plants for your tank, take a look at the swap and shop section! =)
