Those are so cute! If I wasn't a disaster with plants I would so love to try one.

Shrimp like that have an almost insignificant contribution to bioload. They will not be responsible for altering water quality or chemistry. Over feeding them however, is a different story.

Can anyone suggest a type of snail that might work in something like this?

I'm thinking a nerite might be hard to keep fed, and a mystery snail would be too big??

Thanks.

Feeding shrimp?! hahaha don't be foolish :P

My shrimp (the ones I kept, I gave most of them [females] away) have not been fed since I got them.. I had them for 13 months, I might have fed them when I got them but the mess was enough for me to stop. They scavenge on dead plant material, biofilm, BB and whatever goodies live in the substrate.

YES! I have some! I had these little bowl around that flowers came in. I always have trimmings and extra plants, so decided to plant the vases. it is a bunch of fun! I plan on checking out thrift stores for more bowls to use. Next I'm going to try with soil, the one I have now I used sand. Here are some photos of my little bowls.

Thanks! :D No, I don't have any critters in them. They do get natural light, so I think I may have a problem with algae eventually. I thought maybe I will just pop one of my nernite snails it them to clean up the algae for me. The vases have only been planted for about a week.

I have a question about this. I also have a .5 gallon tank that has extra plants. would they need heat to survive? I have light for them but no warmth for the plants.
