    Guess The Size of My Newest Walstad Bowl

    The creative juices were flowing so I built this here. I知 really into the Walstad method using various bowls and vases.

    What do you guys think I should stock it with?

    Any guesses to how many gallons?

    What would you do different?

    Any suggestions for plant or stock?

    .5-1 gallon bowl. Stock it with some Fire Reds or Blue dreams.

    Beautiful!!! My guess is also sub-1gallon.

    How long you planning to wait till you stock with shrimp?

    Ugh - absolutely in LOVE!

    I have 2 or 3 little vases that I threw some plants in a little over a month ago (hoping to do the same thing as you actually), just scared to introduce shrimp too early haha.

    Let us know how the acclimation goes!

    Looks like it was a small cup or candle or those things those flavored shots come in. I would say holds about a cup of water?
    THE CAKE IS A LIE!

    Guess The Size of My Newest Walstad Bowl

    Haha! Someone finally guessed it @Zenzu.
    Probably just a tad bit less of a standard cup in water volume.

    I bought a punch bowl from a thrift store to use the bowl for an aquarium bowl. I was wondering what to do with the small drink glasses that came with it and I came up with this.

    Although some blue shrimp would look awesome in this, I知 afraid they would probably jump out. I added daphnia for some activity. Probably will add a scud or two for longevity. I値l see how long I can keep the daphnia alive.

    Thanks all who participated. I値l see how long it will keep up. I値l keep thread updated so long as this micro aquarium is active. Cant wait for my first water change!

    If anyone wants to see a small video I uploaded
