I've been looking for some cool lamps to go with some bowls I've been putting together and I really like the look of these mid-century desk lamps. I didn't realize how small they were though so I'm having a hard time finding a bulb that fits flush inside the shade.

Right now I've got a e27 3w LED on it but I had to use an adapter to convert e27 to candelabra.

The bowl itself if just a mishmash of stuff I had lying around. Been running about 2 weeks. I'll probably add some shrimp in the next couple weeks.

cool
i'd say make it run more and have it get overgrown first before adding shrimp, but thats just to be very safe.

So this is pretty much my wife's bowl as she does all the maintenance. As such all credit goes to her. It has 4 orange neocaridina shrimp which don't want to reproduce. I had fungus issues at one point and had to salt dip them on a couple different occasions so that may be the reason.

as long as there are males and saddled females in there, they will reproduce eventually. It can take a while. mine sometimes take a 2-3 month pause before i see berried females running around again. I keep Yellows in mine. Do your Orange sakuras stand out well in this bowl or do they blend into the plants and scape? i can't tell from the photo.
