I do think now that I may have added them too early, but I check the parameters often to detect any issues, (none so far)
I do need to grab a floating plant to diffuse the light though, it is a bit strong for this small bowl, 11 watt halogen for 1 gallon at 4 inches I think could fry a shrimp... I have a UV filter for it, but havent decided whether to use it or not, to diffuse some light... I am wondering how the plants would fair w/o the UV spectrum?? Thoughts on that?
I was in an impulsive mood and that is a big nono for aquarists I learned about letting the bowl "mature" a little late, yes I did add them in at 2 days. I am expecting to do a few pwc's until my biofiltration kicks in better.
Alyssa.. yeah, six bowls, different sizes, different themes... AWESOME!
