My new nano bowl and it's plans!

To start things off, here's the bowl I'll be using, picked it up from Goodwill for $3 bucks after changing..well nevermind!

https://www.dropbox.com/s/dz20xwx6o8o43st/DSC02826.JPG

What I'm thinking about doing is putting a light layer of Osmocote+ on the bottom, then dirt and capped with sand.

Add a small piece of wood or a small rock some trimmings from my main tank, lots of moss and calling it good!

Whatcha think?

edit: it's only a gallon too, so for critters, I was thinking shrimp and snails, this is of course after watching ammonia levels and such. I also don't plan on filtering it or using a heater but lighting will be a 10W Colormax CFL

Here's some pictures of what I have now. I think I put too much dirt/sand.

Not putting any wood, but can you recommend plants.

Please forgive me about the pictures being vertical, I'm not sure why it's uploading them vertical and I can't change it with Dropbox

Alright much better. Used about half the amount of dirt and sand.

crypt parva in the center? good choice. once you grow more moss, a moss border at the line where the rock meets the sand would look good.
blyxa japonica for the background instead of the stems would look much better though. that or dwarf sag, or pygmy chain swords.

Thanks buddy!

I just got home from work a few minutes ago to find a snail on my desk. He must have been laying on my desk for HOURS. I plopped him back in and I think he might still be alive

nerites will be alive if thats what you have. regular pond snails might hold out for a few hours. nerites are alive for a day or two out of water.

Blyxa behind rocks, i am telling you:
