No filtration or heating. :)
There's a little more than 1/2 gallon of water in there... the substrate is quite deep. I had hydra in this bowl for a while, so I neglected it for the longest time XD

Thats the beauty of NPTs. They're usually immediately established and you don't need to do water changes!

I set this up about 3 months ago I think. I also didn't stock it with anything until now. LOL. It has 3 blue ramshorns, blackworms, lots of mts and pond snails.

The substrate I used isn't MGOPM, so it's mostly peat, which leaked tannins like crazy. hahaha. I changed the dark tea colored water when I needed to stock the tank with the Yellows.

I don't change the water in my betta tank often. but for this one I plan to change 25% /week to keep the TDS down.

Hi,

do you put a lid on it to prevent escaping snails & jumping shrimps?

Thanks
