The thing with your setup you probably won't be able to see much through the sides of the tank so think of it as being viewed like a pond. Not many fish look that great when viewed from above except for goldfish or koi. Plant wise you would be limited to moss and carpet plants if you don't want emergent growth.

I'd say at least 3-4 inches of water would be best... But that's just my opinion.

I've kept gardneri kilis before and they're super pretty and quiet easy to keep!

Default nana petites and mosses

the nanas would eventually emerge a little, but mosses on top of very thin layer of gravel to adhere to would worke great. what about a few of the horned nerite snails? as long as there was some glass for them to climb out of the water a bit from time to time. and they're very colorful. And tough about temps.

if you can find some freshwater flounder they have those. idk how well they do with carpeted plants though. what might look cool is plants growing tall. so like a shallow dish with tall plants like a mini rain forest.

did this idea just die off??

I have a round bowl like container that's about 3.5 inchs in height (about 9 in in diameter)....was wondering if some PFS and some moss etc would be ok for some shrimp?

The idea was put on hold. My reason for doing it is no more, but it would still be cool to try.
At the time I didn't want to give my reason away, but you see, I had this poor hatchling turtle. The little turtle could not see very well, only one limb worked and it wasn't feeding well or swimming. So, I was thinking of making a shallow tank for him/her with fish/shrimp/snails that could become an extra food source if they happened to stumble infront of the little turtle. They baby turtle didn't make it however, so now I don't have a use for such a shallow tank.
However the idea is still rather interesting and it would be fun to attempt someday. If any of you go for it, let me know!
