as long as the plants and jar is established you can stock stuff...



that looks really good man, how often do you change the water? i have a similar jar i will post a pic of later with a potted microsword. the puffer is doing well in his new home, i actually had a bunch of baby shrimp swimming around my tank, so i just put them in the jar with the adults.

the betta tank thing is has one shrimp and one snail i will be moving later, i've done some trimming and a water change.
