I was wondering once it all grow in, if i can put 1 or maybe 2 shrimp in there? its only 0.6 gal =<
Yes you can :) as long as the jar is established. I had an wstablish jar a little less than 1/2 gallon. it housed. about 30+ scuds, black worms many baby snails and one cherry shrimp ^___^

here are photos of some of my jars

Wow, I go away for four days and this happens. :p Thanks for all that, guys - you are all so helpful and encouraging. :) So many nay-sayers on other forums >:(. I shall see what plants I can get locally (nothing exciting, that's for sure and have a look at some different layout in a jar no more than 4 inches across. :)

Life.

Well, I'm very excited. I have set it up today! I will post photos and a journal in a new thread when I get back (at uni at the moment). Still need some duckweed and I'm definitely not looking forward to trimming this mess - the opening at the top of the jar is pretty small and I have big hands.

Life.

Cool! I am so totally going to try this! I have a nice little 1 gal that I've been using as a temporary Q tank. Now I have something to do with it once Ziggy moves to his 8 gal.
