Recently found this old glass vase just sitting in storage while helping the in laws move. I can put this to good use right?
Not looking to get super technical or contest worthy (like I could even), just a little scape for the countertop or bedroom.
Ultimate goal of this scape is to provide a suitable habitat for cherry shrimp that can be easily moved, while keeping the cost relatively inexpensive.
