Petsmart has some "shrimp pellets" meant for feeding shrimp as well as small catfish and such. So I might get some of those.

Good. I would do some water changes. Walstrad method would resuce water changes.

I was prepared for water changes. With the marimo and shrimp alone, based on research and some experience in the past with small planted setups and shrimp, I would probably do a water change once a month.

If you need any bladder snails, I will gladly give you some of mine. They will gobble up brown algae and make it into something that can be siphoned (poop). Trust me, it is VERY hard to kill these snails. lol. They do, however, produce like crazy.

DIDN'T YOUR PARENTS EVER TELL YOU NOT TO TAKE SNAILS FROM STRANGERS?! LOL I have no idea where that came from...

My guess is I'll probably just wind up getting some of those when I get a plant. Or I could maybe buy some ramshorns from my LFS. IDK I'm still leaning towards just getting a glass shrimp. And since this will be a small fishbowl the LAST thing I want is anything reproducing in it.

Rotting foods my big worry. Also Shrimp are very sensative to Ammonia.
