Wow! Still looks great! Does shrimps don't jump off through the drift wood?

Re: 1 Gallon Planted Bowl

I love the microsword in there. It doesn't overtake much and is easy to thin out if needed. And the shrimp stay put! Usually the reason things try to get out is if the water parameters are bad

Yeah it does look great! I love "tanks" with emergent growth!
However what's growing in those other jars?

I'm guessing, greenman, but those smaller jars look like candles to me. JMex can probably confirm when he gets a chance.

Thank you! The other jars are just candles. My girlfriend isn't as into building nano tanks as I am

Very nice! I'm glad to see someone else is doing this. I have a one gallon bowl with a betta and some plants. I've had it up for about a month longer than you, and it is doing great. I've seen too many people wreck on this concept saying that this is not suitable for fish. I think the fact that people like you and me maintain the tank with live plants and water changes makes these small habitats more suitable than a cup on a shelf in the store. I know that betta is super happy, and I'm sure your shrimp are as well.

Nice work!! Keep us posted.

I just took the bowl on the long trek back from the college as it's about time for everything to get out of the dorms. It has been around for one year now and the microsword has really taken over. I might end up trimming that big lump of it in the front. Also came to find out that the female shrimp is berried! Only thing off seems to be what looks like blue-green algae growing under the sand cap (still no algae anywhere else).
