Oh btw, I forgot to mention. if you are using just sand...
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!
