Here is my 1 Gallon Planted Bowl. It is my pride and joy. It has changed so much in the last few months. It is on a dry start right now, but is going to be flooded March 28, 2012. :)

Equipment:
1 Gallon Glass Bowl
Filtered Light From 5 Gallon

Substrate:
Black Sand

Plants:
Dwarf Hair Grass

Fauna:
Nothing right now. (It is going to house a few shrimp.)

Here it is so far.

Sweet! I had a planted 1 gallon bowl once with an Aponogeton (sp?) and a mystery snail. I miss it (the snail died, which quickly polluted the water, and then the aponogeton outgrew the tank). I'd like to see that with some shrimp. :)

Thank you. I am actually going to try and get a High Grade Cherry Shrimp or Sakura shrimp for this bowl. Hopefully, I can get some. :D

For the current set up....About 11 weeks this Wednesday, 10 weeks for the dry start with substrate and plants. But I did an oopsie, I didn't add the Organic Potting soil under the black sand. xD

I am going to do weekly or every other week water change of about 25% using a small air hose. These bowls you can change it up how ever you want it. Most people either do more or less. I just depends on what you want to do.

These bowls are very low maintenance. Why I love it so much! :D
