|silvertiger3450||wow....never knew you could keep shrimp in a bowl|

2.5g planted vase: cherry shrimp, scuds, various snails, breeding pair of hybrid endlers.
1.75g planted vase: cherry shrimp, pond snails, 3 male endlers. Just re-done to add large driftwood piece--crypts and mounted java fern still need to grow in.

There are literally hundreds (thousands?) of nano tanks journaled about here on the forum.
Have you taken a look at any of those journals, OP? You'll find tons upon tons of tank ideas.

|silvertiger3450||can you post them?|

TINY daily feedings to prevent fouling the water, 1x weekly 20-30% waterchange, I thin out the floaters and prune as needed at the same time. Twice a month or so I use a floss wrapped swab to scrub down any algae/diatoms that have built up on the glass. That's it.
While I like my acrylic aquariums but for a planted vase I really prefer glass. The extra weight can help provide stability and is a better insulator, there's no worry about the plastic leaching anything into the water and glass is easier to keep clean.
Haven't updated 'em in awhile, but I've got quite a few examples of my no-tech tanks in my albums.

how do you have a filter then.
are plastic tanks as good as glass?

Yep, my smallest planted vessel with cherry shrimp is a friggin' wine glass. Added them as juvies, thinned 'em out as they matured to a final male/female pair. The female just saddled last week.
More realistically--I've got breeding populations in several 1.5-2g planted vases. No-filters, no heaters. Going like gangbusters.

|bitFUUL||You can practically keep cherries in a flower vase, they are pretty undemanding.|
