It is indeed. The shrimp in my other tanks love it and it doesn't really need light, so it should work really well in this tank. :)

Alas! My plants are not happy. They seem to be going very thin and transparent. I have been giving them 8 hours of daylight and 1-2 hours with the flourescent light from my main tank, so I suspect it is the temperature shock causing them to go goopy, rather than light. Nonetheless, I'm going to get a tiny clip-on lamp for the jar. I'm also dosing with ferts to try and give them a little boost.

This is so cool. I think it would be really cool to do something like this but as of yet, I haven't built up the courage to take the leap into the land of live plants so.... :P

Now there is a bit of a funky smell emanating from the jar. Hmm.

Could that be from the plants dying?

I think so. I also think that perhaps the soil has something to do with it.

This is an awesome project - I never would have thought to include shrimp/snails. I'm definitely going to give something like this a try.

My snails are still in there, I think, but I'm going to wait a few weeks and see how things pan out before adding shrimp. :)

It is a pretty good view. Pictures don't do it justice. I'll try and get some on a sunny day. :)

I'll see if I can get some pictures of the jar tomorrow. It's looking pretty bleh, though. :p
