It will get weekly WC's because there are a few cherry shrimp living in there

Other than that it will be left alone

Looks great Alasse, do you think it will be a problem maintaining water quality in such a small volume of water Question

No, it should be no different than a large tank. It has live plants with a light bioload, so waterchanges will keep it sweet

I picked up a desk lamp for it...has a halogen globe equivilant of 40W of light *LOL* Will be a bit of trial and error at how far away for the top of the jar the light needs to be. I can now see my shrimpies comings and goings!
