It is indeed. The shrimp in my other tanks love it and it doesn't really need light, so it should work really well in this tank. :)

Alas! My plants are not happy. They seem to be going very thin and transparent. I have been giving them 8 hours of daylight and 1-2 hours with the flourescent light from my main tank, so I suspect it is the temperature shock causing them to go goopy, rather than light. Nonetheless, I'm going to get a tiny clip-on lamp for the jar. I'm also dosing with ferts to try and give them a little boost.

This is so cool. I think it would be really cool to do something like this but as of yet, I haven't built up the courage to take the leap into the land of live plants so.... :P

Now there is a bit of a funky smell emanating from the jar. Hmm.

Could that be from the plants dying?

I think so. I also think that perhaps the soil has something to do with it.

This is an awesome project - I never would have thought to include shrimp/snails. I'm definitely going to give something like this a try.


"But Pontos, the great sea, was father of truthful Nereus who tells no lies, eldest of his sons. They call him the Old Gentleman
because he is trustworthy, and gentle, and never forgetful of what is right, but the thoughts of his mind are mild and righteous."


Are you looking for some art of your betta? I do digital drawings for $5-10! Click here to see some examples.

My snails are still in there, I think, but I'm going to wait a few weeks and see how things pan out before adding shrimp. :)

It is a pretty good view. Pictures don't do it justice. I'll try and get some on a sunny day. :)

I'll see if I can get some pictures of the jar tomorrow. It's looking pretty bleh, though. :p
