yep I agree ^_^
All my jars survive off ambient lights from my tanks~ I'm using insane amounts of lights for really small tanks, so there's plenty to share around :D
I've got LEDs that are pretty focused, not a lot of ambient tank light. We have other large indoor terrestrial plants that do well so I think the aquatic stuff will be fine.
yep they will~I grow a lot of emmersed plants too!
I've heard feed back about led (finnex rayii) vs Fluorescent (cfl, t8,t5). And that the fluorescent bulbs brings out better color from the plants. not sire how true that is. I've ordered a led bulb from ebay to test this out ^_^
on the other hand there are pricier Leds that create awesome lighting. But the price tag keeps me at bay.
Mine's a Marineland Doublebright, 6,500k I think. Lots of growth. About 1800lux at the bottom I expect.
He was comparing this light with compact fluorescents.
I'm not too familiar with the lux, but I'm pretty sure the PAR and light levels are similar.
I think red plants are red due to a couple of factors, including high light, limited nitrites and iron.
Regarding the OP...
Nice looking Jar! :-D It sure looks a lot bigger than .3 gallons though. Also, is .3 gallons enough for that many ghost shrimp? Won't they breed? Do you need to cycle a ghost shrimp only tank? Thanks in advance!
is .3 gallons enough for 4 ghost shrimps...? good question XD I guess we'll fine out :P I AM keeping 6 adult shrimps and many babies+lots of snails in a gallon tank with .75 gallons of water... so~ it should.
This is how I set up my jars.
they can't be "cycled" as they dont have a filter.
The plants generally need an adjustment period.
I will use a thin layer of whatever substrate. and put the plants in.
usually prodominently low light, small leaved, hardy fast growing stems. then I add a couple of floaters.
In these setup my best friends are pond snails. Depending on the jar size I will put in a few snails.
pomd snail cleans up the tank as well as completing the plant/animal cycle.
food -> snail waste -> plants
I give the tank a month or two before stocking with shrimps. the tank tends to balance itself out by then.
Burning the midnight oil! Aokashi, could you give us a plant list of your little jar? :3 I can figure out what they all are except for that stem! lol!
myriophyllum mattogrossensse and mayaca fluitans...
probably spelt them both wrong. lol!
