I was out today and this bowl for cheap. I had some Flourite left over from my six gallon tank I just set up so I decided to try a small bowl. Worked on a layout today that contains both rock and driftwood, however I think I might have made it too crowded. Still deciding on plants, right now I am thinking of using dwarf hairgrass, but I don't know what else. Comments and ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. I'll keep updating as I go along.

I have a desk lamp that I am planning on using. Right now it has a "plant" light bulb in it, but I think that this will make the tank too hot. So maybe I will get a screw-in fluorescent, not sure what wattage, does anyone have any recommendations as to what I should use?
No H2O plant, sorry to say not that cool of a place. It was a good old target special, found it where they sell the house plants for around $10. Here is another picture, more from the side. I still cannot get a good picture of it that shows the depth of it, all of them look smaller than in person.
I was able to spend a little time putting in some plants a few days ago. Nothing to fancy. This bowl is my little experiment, I am planning on not using a filter or a heater and seeing how it works. I don't know if I am going to put any aquatic life in it or not.
I was wondering if anyone has tried something similar without any fish or shrimp and how it worked out. One thing that worries me is how to control algae without any animals? Any information would be very helpful, thanks.
Sorry about the pictures, the curve of the bowl along with the water make taking a good picture impossible.
