Newbie - unusual shaped 3g - plant stocking advice
I have a very unusually shaped 3g tank that I'm dying to build out with live plants a fish or two and some inverts. I have my eye on a dwarf crayfish, but have been reading VERY conflicted information about its space needs. If not that then some colorful shrimp.
On to my question.
My aquarium is a large snow globe 18 inch wide base that curves up slowly into a full dome at a height of roughly 9 inches. The middle though, has the water filter/air pump build into the center base, so I can't cover that with anything but a very porous decoration.
So what I'm looking for are some nice plants that can be planted around the center decoration, that will look good even if they can't grow higher than 4-7 inches. In addition, there is very little space at the top of the tank for gas exchange.
There are soo many options out there and my local planted tank was . . . . well after 20 minutes in the store, the clerk didn't even say hello to me. So really looking for some solid advice.
Preferably something a little low maintenance that can live off ambient sunlight (have the tank next to a window). I do have a built in UV light I can use as well which is supposed to mimic sunlight.
