Walstad 3 gallon Jar Photos to come

I'm in the planning stages of starting a dirted 3G jar from work.

I'm thinking of putting in Rotala and Hornwort for starting plants, with Filter mulm for nutrients.

Basic layout, Few stems of each plant, Hornwort floating, Rotala Planted
into about 1 1/2-2 1/2 inches of Plain old soil, As in I would literally be using a shovel to grab stuff outside, and capping it with a thin layer of some extra pool filter sand I've got, maybe 3/4's of an inch to a full inch sand cap.

I've been toying with the idea of using Ghost shrimp in it, since it would be my First attempt at both the Walstad method, and a dirted, plant oriented tank.

Oh and lighting will be window sill, with maybe 3-4 hours a day of low par CFL 13W.

Wish me Luck.
