This little vase is no more. Had to part with it during the move.
But I'm picking up another one soon and will use the same plants and same light. Even have a filter for it now.

Still chugging along. No shrimp yet. But I picked up another Hagen Elite Mini to serve for flow and filtration.
Am currently prepping for a big move and will be draining the vase. Will set it back up upon arrival, install the filter, "cycle" everything and then move four or five shrimp into it.

|Psiorian||Hows this vase going? I'm wondering if you stocked it with any of your shrimp yet.|

S. repens has totally melted. Not sure if it's dead or what. Will snap a few photos tomorrow. If it's died off (kind of hoping that it has), I'm going to plop in some other plants I need to use up.
Bacopa has slowly grown a few inches and is looking healthy as ever. B. monnieri may be one of my most favorite simple stems.

Yep, Neos are quite hardy.
While my Pure Red Lines are hardy in terms of Crystals, it'll take me a bit of effort to be able to handle them in a container like this at first. Not completely set on them, though.
Also interested in some water movement for the S. repens.

I have rcs in. A vase with no water movement and filtration and they are happy. I have since added gravel from the main tank and i originally used tank water.
This was a test as i can go onto larger vases and put the light you suggested on it. I guess Rcs can live without filters and movement anyway.

cbachmann: Not much to update, as I just started it a couple weeks ago. Will snap more photos and such as things grow in.
Knotyoureality: I'm aware that filtration isn't always necessary. But it's not something I'll likely risk when housing more sensitive types of shrimp. May actually end up keeping some Crystals in it toward the end of summer.

Since I'm thinking about adding shrimp to this vase, I'll want to properly "cycle" it and have some sort of filtration.
I've got a Hagen Elite Mini internal filter that would be perfect, I think. But I've only ever used them as tiny pumps/powerheads and never filtration. Anyone have thoughts on their use for filtration? (I also use them to supply water to HOB breeder boxes.)
Suppose I could always just use one of my old RedSea Nano filters. Would mean less equipment inside the vase.

|mosspearl||I'm envious of your many empty countertops with handy outlets. All my jars have to sit on a baker's rack near the sliding glass door to get natural light. With a family of 10, you can imagine extra space is at a premium, especially when they're all hooked on computers and video games.|

|GreenBliss||I'll be following along too. I got various bowls and jars that I set up recently. Love them.|

OVT: Yep. Got tired of tossing tiny clippings that weren't really suitable for RAOKs.This way I can grow them out, give them away and start the vase over. Now that I've hidden the cord a bit and positioned things better, it looks pretty neat. Since it's in a windowless room, it will serve as a decent night light.
FungusTroper: You can buy them from any number of aquatics retailers. 3w Deep Blue Professional Solar Flare LED. Just pick your preferred retailer.

|FungusTrooper||Sweet! Where did you get the light? I see some on Amazon but I'm not sure if they're the same.|

Resistance is futile!
