Tiny Walstad alstad tank. What could go wrong?
This will be more of a blog post thread I think. If people want to chime in I'm all ears.
I found a jar I liked at Target and the goal is a wet run at home for a desk version in my new office in 2 months. Goal is a balanced symbiotic environment with shrimp. I have been looking at ecospheres for years, and just couldn't pull the trigger. So 1.5 gal should be way easier than something the size of a light bulb.
Tank is 1.5 gal water column, 2 gal overall. I didn't buy the miracle gro organic, just the regular potting mix. This may or may not be foreshadowing.
Light source is a 5000k 15w led also from target. I'm not completely sure on the plants I bought , but they were streaming bubbles on day 2 so they can't be all bad and I like the diversity and look.
