What I did was to throw. couple of snails in there and waited about a month for the aquarium to mature a bit, before slowly stocking.
The majority of my Jar is populated by plants that do fine floating, mostly susswassertang and various mosses. The top is covered by floaters. There's a lucky bamboo in there to account for unused nutrition in the substrate. The Jar also sustains a good humidity for the bamboo to grow....
I did this all without testing the water....

Now the tank is overrun with pond snails XD
I'm trying to be extra careful not to introduce it to my other tanks!

It's beautiful aokashi! I love looking at your planted tanks, they always look amazing. I would love to set a small-scale NPT up!

I hope it does amazingly for you.

Ooh, I bought this tank and just set it up a couple days ago! It was on backorder forever! I am waiting for my big batch of plants to come in the mail next week so I can get them started! I have the Mr. Aqua 13.3-gallon bowfront tank too, but I actually lost it! We moved last month, and I cannot find that sucker anywhere! Grrr But I love the Mr. Aqua tanks!
