Do the smaller globes have any problem with water flow?

tap dancing on the fine line of awesomeness and craziness. It's just something you don't see everyday and I love it (strange because i hate modern/retro).

Nope, not that I can see. Shrimp are occasionally inside and there aren't any problems with the plants that are in there either. The bowl came with a complex system of pipes that attached to a canister filter, but I chose not to use them. Haven't had any problems so far. I do change the water every couple weeks enough to drain and refill the smaller globes.

The moss and pennywort have grown quite a lot over the past couple months. I'll try to get some updated pics sometime this week.

dude, this is nice, although I do have to wonder how you avoid little pockets of air in the two moons
I want this so badly now XD

Nope, no air gets into the outer spheres. I use airline tubing and siphon everything out, nice and easy.

The only time I had air was in the right side with the pennywort. The pennywort was photosynthesizing and releasing oxygen and I got a little pocket at the top.

Quick update after an earlier water change. 3 months in now. The moss has expanded and the colony has grown. Some riccia hitchhiked in and took over the intake of the HOB in the back. All in all, the bowl is stupid-proof, no complaints here.

Wonderful shots - the curvature of the glass makes for a cool "snow globe" effect - the sphere is looking great! When you patent stupid-proof, send me some - lol

"Amazballs!" =)

I really like the simplistic plantings, especially the moss ball in the left orb. What a cool conversation piece!

Oh, great minds. Yeh, it was either that or I was going to tie a chopstick to the end of a spoon.
