I don't know how big it is, but you should put a big snail in there, or a bunch of small ones

Vase = Those glass cubes? Most likely 6x6x6 or 7x7x7 or 8x8x8.

Currently out of the hobby

Thats what I was thinking. I will probably add some MTS when I get mine to breed.

That shouldn't be a problem. When the lights go out in one of my tanks a swarm of them come out and I only started with a few not too long ago.

As for suggestions, maybe you could put some kind of taller plant in the back.

The plant on the top is a Peace Lily in a riparium planter. I would like it to grow thick and bushy to cover the top of the tank. I was wondering what plants to add, I was thinking Hornwort, which can grow tall. Thanks for the input!

A riparium is a tank that uses these cool planters and rafts with bog or terrestrial plants in them that are above the water. You can see my signature for my 20g. Also, take a look at Hydrophytes and Hoppys ripariums, THEY ARE AWSOME!!!
