Betta Oto Amano(+RCS cull) Bowl!


So after really enjoying my shrimp bowl(see link in signature) I decided to make another, except this time put a betta in it. Then, I put some amanos in it. Then, I culled my cherry population in my 10g(also in sig.) and put some into here. Then I added some Otos. Here it is.

Born: 10.8.11

Specs:
~2 gal sphere bowl
MGOCPM w/Play Sand cap
13W CFL @ 5000k
Zoomed 501 filter
Sits on top of a seedling heat mat

Flora:
HC(Dwarf Baby Tears)
Red Ludwigia
Stargrass
Red Root Floaters
Wisteria(will be removed later)

Fauna:
1 - Male Crowntail Betta(Norbert)
3 - Otocinclus
3 - Amano shrimp
~20 - RCS(low quality)
Lots of seed shrimp and cyclops

What a lovely bowl. I'm having such trouble with mine right now...
I added in MGOPS. I raised the substrate because it was too low for me last time. And now I think its too high.. lol..
I wish I could scape round tanks as well as this.

hey, do you know the kh and gh of the bettas bowl? on trying to make a data table of water hardness and crowntail ray curling to see if there actually is a correlation or not.

i love the bowl btw. do you have CO2 in there for the HC, or did you get it to grow without it?

Isn't a 2g too small for an oto, much less 3? Water parameters are stable? My 2g still gives me spikes now and then, and I only have 1 female betta with some snails.
