Shrimp bowl newb here with a question
So I started a shrimp bowl a little while back and never really went anywhere with it. Most of the plants died and I just uprooted the plants and let the bowl sit there for a bit...
Well, I started taking care of it again and I cleaned the inside glass because of a diatom outbreak, took out the old Flourite cap I had and replaced it with PFS (I did this about 2 weeks ago). I've been changing the water on it every weekend, about 75% of it.
I put a shrimp in on Saturday to see if he'll live, but he was dead come Sunday morning. So I did another 75% water change, tested the water and it tested fine, so I put another one in just to test again. Well, I wake up this morning only to find him laying on his back...
The bowl has no water circulation nor a heater. Temp fluctuates between 68-72 throughout the day.
It has dwarf sag and anubias nana petite in there for plants.
What am I doing wrong?

Who would have thought that plants like dirt?!
