Walstad Jarrariums for shrimp (possibly)


Recommended Posts

Hey guys! so I've been setting up these Jarrariums for the last week or so. I just got a big shipment of plants from bamaplants so hopefully I can grow them out and make these look even better :) I plan on stocking the 2.5 gallon with what is in the jar on the far right and possibly the second from the left as well. I have 8 RCS in my 20 gallon that will likely end up being housed in the 1 gallon and 2.5 gallon, but if they start breeding in my community aquarium I might leave them there and just move over the babies.


Do I 'need' filtration on the 1 gallon or 2.5?

What should I put in the 2.5 gallon?

So this is the plant list in the jars:

Java Moss (Taxiphyllum barbieri)

Java Fern (Microsorum

Crypt wendtii brown... I think

Telanthera Cardinalis

Ludwigia Repens

Anacharis (Egeria densa)

Anubias Nana (Anubias barteri var. nana )

Rotala rotundifolia (Rotala rotundifolia)

Pothos Vine

Monte Carlo (Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo')

Staurogyne Repens

Salvinia Rotundifilia

Pygmy Chain sword narrow leaf

Echinodorus Xingu

Littorella Uniflora

Val Americana

Sag Subulata narrowleaf


Lobelia cardinalis small form

2 Blyxa japonica
