Bowl on the right pretty much everything died. So I have started over on it. Nothing but plants in it atm. The left hand bowl is doing amazingly well. I have some pictures but I need to take time to upload them.

not sure, probably partly b/c the main arrowhead died and when I went to pull it out I made a mess of the dirt and cloud that resulted settled on every other plant in there and likely greatly reduced the photosynthetic capabilities of the plants.

no big deal it was easy to start it over.

not really sure, I still have one alive in the other bowl. It could be a seasonal thing or maybe they need a time with just damp water.

Snapped a few pictures this morning before I left the house because I notice both the ludwigia and the Alternanthera were blooming, my first aquatic plant blooms! yes, they on emergent growth but I don't care.



Also these bowls are now home to about 10 kribensis fry. Just an experiment to see what would happen. They are still alive and been in there a week now. No heater, no filter they seem to like it, cruising around munching on all the yumminess in there.
