My newest little garden .8

Had this sitting on a shelf collecting dust and decided to try something I have never done. No filter, heater, ferts or fish.
Originally set up and photographed this Feb 8th.
The plants are from a terrarium of submersible plants I have in my house and a floater swiped from my 20H. I made daily 90% water changes for the first month and added 3 juvenile cherry shrimp from my shrimp tank at the 3 month mark.

Trimming is weekly and I do 50% water changes at the same time.
I never thought this would work out for me due to my obsession with tech tanks but it is a very peaceful tank that I am moving to my office where it has a single plug from the 4W Finnex light..



.8 gallon Cubus , Fluval shrimp stratum, left over very small pieces of wood from other projects Finnex 4W and RO water.

So happy with how this has matured.

Today I decided it is ready to make the move to my office. I need some of the ZEN there right now.
