Its nowhere near the overgrown beauty shown here but hoping it will eventually grow into a dense wild mess ^^
It will, have fun watching that bowl grow!

I have been thinking: would i make another shrimp bowl in the future if i had the time and space for one? Chances are high because it is a nice aquariums type thing to look at and is easy to grow stuff in as long as I keep to Neocaridina shrimp.

MobileMedic Just wanted to say thanks for being such an inpiration. I had an early jar fail but you have made me want to give it another go!

Newman o hey brandon! i almost forgot you were on this site/side too lol. you did/still have that awesome uber plant orb that was/is pretty self sustaining.

yeah this bowl was great!
I am not much into shrimp anymore because i got into L number plecos and breeding plecs in general, but i may still revive this bowl someday in the far future. I'd prob do the reef vase way before another planted bowl though.

brandon429 Newman hi man. Hey I just read the thread I'm so impressed man!

Newman pygmy chain swords are pretty cool! they are kinda like dwarf sag. and can be used similarly
10-22-2013 10:35 PM
AquaAurora I've been debating for a while between pygmy chain sword and micro sword for my nano. I like the idea of being able to cut it (micro) but the pygmy looks so lovely from your photos! I can't decide arghh

i checked in often with your bowl

(and Xenxe's) when getting my shrimp bowl going. Thanks for opening up a beautiful miniature world for me.

For the guy about the Ikea lamp--I have low and med. light plants in mine and they grow just great with it from the get-go.

FisheriesOmen Sad to see it go I'm sure your Thread has been the most inspirational when it comes to shrimp bowls, I know it is true for me, I might not have even been in the FW hobby if it wasn't for your bowl Newman.

acejohn This bowl really inspired me to create one! :-)

Newman Plans changed. It's time somebody else enjoys the shrimp and plants from this bowl
03-22-2013 08:17 PM
dhgyello04 NOOO!!!! Say it isn't so. May we ask why?
03-22-2013 07:39 PM
Kehy Sorry to hear that. But this bowl has been a huge inspiration for me to make my own shrimp bowl, and I've really enjoyed watching both of ours grow

mosspearl Aw, sorry to hear that, Newman. It's been quite a ride. But I guess all good things must come to an end.

Newman Bowl is being taken down.
Shrimp are up for sale:
http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...026&highlight=
The plants will be given away in the RAOK section soon. (there is a good amount of moss in here and roughly 20 pygmy chain swords.)
