Yeah, since they breed a lot, I figured they would need a lot of space. I remember when I had a 15 gallon planted tank where I bred RCS and had some rasboras in the tank, too. Okay, I need to stop babbling nostalgically about my old fishroom (back when my dad was in a big house, I had a fish breeding setup in the basement, sadly it didn't last long ).

Well I know, but compared to a fishbowl a ten gallon is rather big. That, and it's big enough that we can't fit one in my dad and stepmom's house.

Well, anyway, so I guess I'm going with the fishbowl, bare-bottom with a marimo, a glass shrimp (I've had bad luck with snails in the past, so I probably won't get one now that I think of it), and MAYBE some java moss. Whenever I finally get this set up, I'll make a new thread (or bump this one, probably the first option) with some pictures.

I've only had experience with mystery snails, which would last a few weeks and then die, which would pollute the water faster than I noticed that they had died...

Yep, glass shrimp it is.

Well, my stepmom said I could probably get the bowl and marimo ball next weekend I'm at their house (in about 2 weeks), so I'll post pics when I get it. Hopefully I can get the shrimp, too (since a little fishbowl doesn't really "cycle", and I am aware of the Nitrogen Cycle, don't worry). Either way, I'll update when I start the setup.

Marimo is super hardy. Brown algae is hurting mine. I would try and find a good food to add for the shrimp.
