Talking Thought I was done... Back with a low tech 2.5 gal vase

I had to move recently and decided to stop the hobby. . . I donated my 33gal thinking this was the end but I just missed it to much!
So I decided to turn a 2.5 gallon vase into my first natural aquarium. It is also my first attempt at a nano set up.
The substrate is earth worm casting capped off with silica sand.
Light is a 20w halogen desk lamp. I'm thinking that I will have to change the wattage for sure. Hope I can find a halogen bulb that is lower . .
No filter No heater
Hope to stock with shrimp, snail and sparkling gouramis
Here is the first couple days
