I'm not completely sure where to post this... When I bought Dagger, he was sold to me in a vase, which is where he had been living his whole life until then. He now lives in a ten gallon tank by himself.
Now I have this vase hanging around and would like to do something interesting with it, and use it as my dining table centerpiece. It maybe holds 1/2 a gallon. My java fern has a a few babies on the tips of its leaves. I was wondering about planting the vase (starting with the baby java fern) and possibly, in the future, getting a couple of shrimp to live in it.
I have no idea how to keep live plants alive in a vase without fish. Or if that is even a suitable environment for plants or inverts? If anyone has any experience with this and can offer advice, I would appreciate it!
Also, I am completely open to suggestions on things to do with the vase. Since I want to use it as a centerpiece I am not interesting in having anything in it that needs to be plugged in. It would get natural sunlight during the day, as it will be near my kitchen window. Thanks for your help and ideas!
