Shrimp bowl semi Walstad method.
Here is what I have set up. Got a 3 gallon bowl from Walmart. The reason I say (semi Walstad) is that I am using Fluval plant and shrimp statum.I love this stuff. It don't cloud the water when you move plants around. Any way, i cultivated all the plants in the bowl from 2 of my other established tanks, along with a moss ball.The light is just a random desk lamp with a 6500k bulb from Home depot. right after set up. I added 2 ramshorn snails. Water is from the established tanks. Don't know if its better than new water but its what I went with. After 24 hrs I did a test. No ammonia, no nitrite and a trace of nitrates. Added 2 cherry shrimp. They are doing good. picking at the plants. I will monitor the water daily. my 29 g is right by the bowl, so if there is a spike of any kind I can move the shrimp.
