I got into this from another forum where one of the members bought a bowl, scaped it and threw in some shrimp. Well I had to take my crack at it and here it is..
It's a 3 gallon bowl from Michaels craft store. The substrate is a 1" layer of Eco Complete. Somewhere in there is a little wood stump. Initially I had a few plantings then added a couple more but in the spirit of let things run their course I would toss clippings in there. It sits by a window, gets four hours of an 8W CFL bulb and I top off the water when the level drops an inch, so about every week. Well.. this is the result.
This was on 7/11
This was taken tonight.. you can see something is going right.
