Default Re: Nano - 2 Gallon Betta Bowl at the Office

my co-worker has a betta bowl at the office. I (sold) her some peacock moss, wondering if it would live. It gets no light other than fluorescent. Additionally, it's near a bank of windows. With all that indirect light, and the waste from the food and betta, the moss really grows. Recently added narrow leaf java moss, and that's doing fine!

Plus as an experiment, I've put brandy glasses with aqua soil and hairgrass on the windowsill at home, to see how it would grow, and with 14-16 hours of indirect light, it grows really well with almost no maintenance from me. And no algae, that's what's nice about this method. Really low tech, very low maintenance.

Just to show you the possiblities!
