    You would be surprised what can be done with a little care and practice.

    Keep up the good work.

    There is only a couple of cm of water at the base with java moss I think it would be too small a jar to flood and add shrimp.l am relying on humidity and a daily misting for the plants . Gave me a thought for the Java Fern bowl though Keith that would be ok. but need to work out a water change method and it might work for a couple of cherry shrimps or ram shorn snails

    I would go with the Shrimps far less poop than the Snails. Syphoning a piece of airline with a piece of fine mesh tied on the end. I water my Terrariums with a 1lt plastic watering can I bought it at the local Supermarket.

    You can also syphon into it and most important it won't break the bank.

    Looking good.
    Once the Cherries start breeding unless you do no have a breeding pair you will have plenty to see very soon.
