@Newman... thanks for explaining the cyano to me. I very much enjoyed your 1 gallon bowl thread and now I'm obsessing on doing my own.

@stanzzzz... lovely bowl. I'd love to get one of those bubble bowls for my desk. I really like the tilt you put on the substrate.

Thanks idleivey, now a question for anyone who can give some suggestions, I m moving house in 10 days, how do I transport my bowl with water, if I take the water out then will loose my beneficial bacteria. If I leave half to quarter of water then it will get all muddy by the time I get to my new home . What to do ????.

Majority of the BB is in the substrate. Drain the water but leave things moist. Pack the interior with clean, crinkled up plastic to help hold things in place and cover with plastic to keep humidity in. Use a water jug to drain the water into and you'll even be able to re-fill with the old water (or a mix of the old/new).

The driftwood position combined with the slope is mind blowing.

any updates?

Been a long while i updated anything, been very busy with RL. update to my bowl is my initial shrimps were all dead, then lost interest and gave 2 clown killies to my mate and kept 2. one of them died soon and 1 clown is still alive and kicking.I always wanted to see if an otto can live happily. so bought an otto fish an year ago and he is still alive and kicking. straight after that introduced 13 dwarf rasboras and till now they are all alive and kicking. the mistake i made was i never put any heater and the place where i live can get extremely cold in winter. I think the main reason that my fishes and shrimps died was due to fluctuation in water temp. So bought a small heater and then introduced my otto and rasboras and none of them died till now. I could be wrong but that's what i could think of. and also mybowl has matured. still got plenty of algae and i recently added a filter(2 weeks ago). i think my otto love his algae so never bothered doing any treatments. i havejust uploaded a video in you tube. will try to put the link here.

Thanks for the update. Glad it's still alive and kicking.

As far as your algae issue, try raising the light a few inches and see if that helps. I went from having surface algae with a light 6" above the water line to none at 8".
