I cut the wood so it can lay at the bottom. The plants are growing very well. There are new shoots on the wisteria and bacopa growing taller. I put a snail in 2 days ago from my filter. It has already grown and looking healthy. I did not test the water, but it has smelled of ammonia for about a week. In the meantime, I did a water change every other day.
The ammonia smell went away (about a week ago?) and smells like a lake now, which means it is ready.
There is lots of gsa and staghorn algae. But not *too* much
Today I got some blue shrimp which I acclimated for a little bit, then added to the bowl.
They are very hungry and eating the algae.
Post pics once I get a light.
Oh yeah, added a big duckweed plant in the bowl. It came with a bag of ghost shrimp.
