I just set up this jar with gravel, Java fern on driftwood, and some crypts and possibly an amazon sword (don't remember exactly what it is) The plants beside the fern are all just barely sprouts. But they seem to be happy. There's some crypt melting but that's normal for transplanting.

I have some led lights but I'm not planning to filter or heat the water. There is some algae on the driftwood. Other than water changes and fertilizer what should I be doing? What size water change and how often?

I would like to, in the future, if it's possible to put shrimp in there.

Please help! I'm completely new to nano tanks. Thanks!

Changing the no filtration to a hob Thanks to another thread here I just ordered a nano hob. I had no idea such a thing existed.

I'm moving the jar from my dining room table up to my studio. I will get shrimp and they'll be my work friends. I'm so excited!
