|resonator||It's a ceramic jar with the lid removed. The bowl rests inside of it well. It's nice n' heavy and it makes a really solid base and raises the bowl up for better visibility.|

|inghamb87||Mind if I ask what the bowl is resting on (the base). It almost seems like it's gonna fall ... i know it's a dumb question but had to ask out of curiosity|

|resonator||Heh, yes, you are right, I had "berried" and "burried" confused. And here I thought people who were writing about RCS were just poor spellers. Thanks for the clue!|

No RCS do not bury themselves. You might be confusing the term "berried" with "buried." Berried = pregnant shrimp.
Nice looking bowl.

|resonator||Thanks all. I got a few RCS today and added them. If I can get my hands on a small amount of black substrate, I'll add it too. I guess these shrimps.. if breeding, like to bury themselves in the stuff (?)|

|dacrax07||With some substrate, the bowl will look awesome! I recommend fine black substrate.|

2 Gallon Fish Bowl w/ Java Plants
Just wanting to share & get some comments/suggestions.
This is a 2Gal bowl. No filtration, no heat, no lighting. Doesn't get any more simple, right?
Flora: Java Moss (attached to driftwood) and Java Fern
Fauna: A lone White Cloud Minnow. He was a transplant from a larger tank that has since crashed and been taken down. He was the only survivor from the crash and he's been seemingly content in this bowl for 6 months or so. I know his species it tolerant to room temperature and below. I guess they like flow, which of course he doesn't really get in this home
I want to add some Red Cherry Shrimps and maybe a snail or two.
No substrate as of right now. My weekly maintenance routine is a 50% water change.
Every few weeks or so, I put the syphoned water in a 1 gal bucket and store the plants/dirftwood/fish in it while I take the bowl out and do a thorough rinse to remove any trace gunk, fill it up to 50% with room temp tap water, then re-add the plants, driftwood/fish/old water.
Please Note the pearling is from a water change and is not the "true" pearling.
