Sad to see it go I'm sure your Thread has been the most inspirational when it comes to shrimp bowls, I know it is true for me, I might not have even been in the FW hobby if it wasn't for your bowl Newman.

i checked in often with your bowl

(and Xenxe's) when getting my shrimp bowl going. Thanks for opening up a beautiful miniature world for me.

For the guy about the Ikea lamp--I have low and med. light plants in mine and they grow just great with it from the get-go.

I've been debating for a while between pygmy chain sword and micro sword for my nano. I like the idea of being able to cut it (micro) but the pygmy looks so lovely from your photos! I can't decide arghh

o hey brandon! i almost forgot you were on this site/side too lol. you did/still have that awesome uber plant orb that was/is pretty self sustaining.

yeah this bowl was great!
I am not much into shrimp anymore because i got into L number plecos and breeding plecs in general, but i may still revive this bowl someday in the far future. I'd prob do the reef vase way before another planted bowl though.

I finally set up a bowl too after being inspired by this thread, 3g bubble bowl with blyxa j., chain sword, micro sword, and thew in left over dwarf tears (don't expect the last to live) a few cherrys, mts, and pond snails that wondered in.
Its nowhere near the overgrown beauty shown here but hoping it will eventually grow into a dense wild mess ^^

It will, have fun watching that bowl grow!

I have been thinking: would i make another shrimp bowl in the future if i had the time and space for one? Chances are high because it is a nice aquariums type thing to look at and is easy to grow stuff in as long as I keep to Neocaridina shrimp.
