I can't see why two cherries couldn't go in there!
I'd raise the water level a little. A neat look for a little tank like this might be a small rooted floater covering the whole tank.
Thanks, I am looking to try to increase the water level as the plant acclimate and fill in more, but not sure if going much higher would loose a balance with the bowl. I'll play around with it when I do the next wc and see how 2/3rds full looks.
I still plan to add in a piece of dw before adding shrimps too, and I have some red rooted floaters in my nano that could be added to the bowl if it helps. Would they be a little too competitive for the nutrients in the bowl though?
My mind was stuck on duckweed. But that might also be too much. Do you dose any ferts?
But if you got some shrimp in there, you never know... Its worth a shot adding some and seeing how your plants look.
No dosing yet, still looking to keep it growing mostly emersed.
We'll see how it goes! I had duckweed once in a bowl home to two African dwarf frogs that sat on my studio desk at college. The stuff seemed to double over night! Not a problem in the bowl though and the frogs did enjoy the cover.
I love it! Sorry I missed it! How do you do water changes? I had a small bowl going with some snails in it, but wow, it stinks. Literally.
Very nice work. I love it.
thanks I use a long piece of airline tubing as a siphon. It's also what I use on my 7g as it doesn't suck in the water as fast so I can clean through the whole tank without losing more than 20% of the water. Occasionally, I do have to use a larger siphon tube to get a deeper cleaning and end up doing a 40-50% water change... even with reducing the flow with my thumb partially over the end of the tube.
I just had some Eco Complete in there and some plant trimmings. I was using airline tubing, too, but even changing out the water once a week...it really stunk. I have moved them back into the 6.6G tank.
How deep did you go with the water--ADA half to 3/4 or something else? Can't tell with update photos. Have a wabi kusa ball made in USA and am anxious to get water level to optimum look.
Hi Koi, the water level is just above the glosso groundcover, which I feel looks the best. With the stones and level of soil, the water fills about 1/3 of the bowl, and doesn't cause the visual distortion of the plantings.
