Very nice! Love the "tree" look with the moss. Think I'm going to try a setup like this again soon.

....and I just noticed this was bumped.

Had to take this down because we needed the spare room for a nursery. I still have the cylinder. Will prob set it up again when the kids are bigger and we have the space.

Shrimp won't live in an unfiltered tank?!

I want to put shrimp in my cylinder but I was told they wouldn't live in it because it's unfiltered. pH is 7.5, hardness is 10, and nitrates are 5.0ppm and ammonia 0. I do a 40 percent water every 2 days with dechlorinated water that sits open for 24 hours. And it's well planted. Any thoughts would help. Thanks!

I had PFR shrimp survive in a moss only tank, no filter or substrate. They breed non stop. I also kept one PFR with few chili rasbora in a Walstad bowl and they love it. Everyone survive in that bowl for about a year before I tore it down and move them to another tank.

PS: Your cylinder about 4 time bigger then my bowl so you can probably keep a breeding colony of shrimp in there.
