that is very tiny :) I'd say one snail... and some small hardy stems~ guppy grass works great for me. I never do substrate in my smaller jars =D I highly recommend to use tank water and source stuff from your tanks~ this helps the system establish faster.

Well it was filled with tank water from the start. Then I did a 1/2 drop of flourish comprehensive and 1/2 drop of excel earlier this week. None of them have shown any growth yet. I ended up with a thick substrate because I wanted big healthy root systems for the plants. I'm hoping to start a shrimp tank in the near future and wanted a huge focus on low tech plant growth so I figured strong established roots would be a huge contributing factor to the success of plants in a new setup.

XD sounds fun~
sometimes you dont need substrate for a big healthy root system o_O my myriophyllum mattogrossense totally proved that :P the roots kinda just dangle downwards through the water.
