Planted bowl ideas/questions
So, after seeing all the crazy beautiful bowls I have to start one too. I'm planning on a Walstad inspired method: capped soil, no heater, no filter, most likely using a desk lamp with a CFL (potentially replaced with LED in the future).
Now, here are my questions...
The tank may get down to 64 deg F in the winter. Does this rule out keeping RCS, or really shrimp in general??
Will that temperature rule out any particular aquarium plants?
Final question...are there any fish (obviously excluding Beta due to low temp) that would be happy in this unheated, unfiltered bowl? Im specifically wondering about killis or white clouds.
I know, I know...white clouds, school of 5 or more, minimum of 10 gallon, but in my years of keeping fish, i have seen many successes come outside of the laws of aquarium keeping, *wink* *wink*
Thanks in advance y'all!!
PS, I'd love to see pics of your 2ish gallon bowls set up close to what I've described!!!
