This was my very first attempt at Walstad method setup right after reading her book - first hearing about the book through one of Dustin's Fish Tanks videos. I actually did this bowl around 2 years ago. The videos are taken from my other youtube channel that was about this bowl. It’s kind of abandoned now, since I don’t have the bowl anymore. I put together all of the videos and decided to put it here, so I could share my experience with all of you. Hope this helps. Walstad method setup is great when it works. However, as I have mentioned in my previous video, it can be difficult and time consuming for the first 2 months or so, until the plants establish themselves. After 7 months or so, vallisneria took over the entire tank, and there were hardly any space for my betta to swim around in. Also, the bowl just looked way too overgrown. I trimmed the vallineria, and it didn’t recover very well. It mostly turned brown from the tips and started to melt. So, I decided to move my betta to the 5 gallon one that most of you have already seen : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYrqG3ORTGo The above link's tank has all of the details about light, substrate, plants list, and everything else in the description. It is the same setup as this bowl - 50W heater with heater cover so the plants wouldn't get burned, 14W CFL coolwhite, light duration, organic soil, 2~3mm cap gravel...etc. For the CFL, I'm going by 2~3 watts per gallon rule. that's only for fluorescent. anything higher will most likely cause accelerated algae growth. I did give it some controlled amount of direct sunlight. I have blinds and the window is facing west, so whenever I had time, I would let the bowl get 1~2 hours max of sunlight. It was not every day, just whenever it was sunny or maybe weekends. It's not a requirement to give it sunlight. It did not cause more algae growth. It actually made the plants grow faster. But I think you should give sunlight only when the plants are already established and thriving. WATER CHANGE: I didn't do water change for the first week. then I couldn't wait and put in my betta. that was a mistake. It takes average of 2 months for this kind of setup to get established. What I mean is all the plants have settled and grow very well. Only then, is the water "safe" for livestock, IMO. The plants are the filter. If the plants aren't doing well, the livestock won't do well. So, after putting in my betta, I did water changes often. nearly daily of 5~50%. but also, I put such a thin cap gravel, which was another mistake, the soil leached out too fast. so I had to add more gravel. I did 5% when there was surface bio-film. I did 50% when the water became too brown. I rarely did 50%. the usual daily water change was around 10~20%. after 2~3 months, I only did weekly water changes of 10~25%. While all this was going on, my betta did get fin rot, b/c I put him in too early. He did recover completely, but it took a while. I should have put him in around 2 months mark. maybe even 3 months. IF you don't put any livestock, you don't need to do daily water changes. Only do water change if the water becomes too brown. maximum of 50%. If your cap is thick enough, water should get too brown around once a week. if your water gets too brown in 2~3 days or earlier, you cap gravel size is too big, and/or it's too thin. after 3 months or so, water hardly became brown. I put a 1cm thick polyurethane mat under the base of the bowl. This bowl's diameter is about 39cm or 15 inches. around 7.5 gallons, or 30 liters. I got it at a local gardening store.

What do you think caused fin rot? Water parameters or stress?
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 2 years ago
it really depends on the size of your tank. that sounds like a lot of lumens. basically, if you have high light, you gotta have high nutrients and high co2. otherwise, balance will be off and you can get lots of algae. walstad setups usually require low light b/c there isn't high co2. and small setups like mine, I think florescent works better. 2~3watts per gallon.

Final question and then ill stop bugging you lol, would a LED bulb of 16k lumens 100w equivalent and 5500 k spectrum work fine to promote healthy growth
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 2 years ago
it's hard to say without knowing more about your setup, but yea. usually 15% daily, or maybe every other day should be enough until your tank is fully established. it' really depends on how well your plants are doing. also, if the water become too brown, 50% change ever so often is a good idea, too.
trevor f
trevor f - 2 years ago
If you do frequent enough water changes, say 15 % daily would that be enough to avoid fin rot
Foo the Flowerhorn

it was definitely water quality. this bowl was my first attempt, and I added him before the bowl was fully established. if I were to do it again, I would wait 8~10 weeks.

I discovered something if anyone cares. I do a lot of gardening/botony and I found out that my soil and I think my soil only is perfect for dirted tank. I thought instead of buying dirt I used my gardening soil since I grow so many plants and exotic plants and trees. I went to the part of my yard away from my redwoods because they make the soil very base and less acidic. I went to where my hydrangeas and poinsettias where growing and they are huge especially my poinsettias they are tiny trees and my hydrangea is about 5 feet. If anyone knows they both like acidic soil and so I went around there collecting soil and testing the pH and all of it was twords 7.5 ish and or 7 exactly. But this was heavy clay soil and not nice soil like where my redwoods are. After this I took a barrel and put all of that soil in part sun and shad during winter/fall. After a couple months the soil became loose and lost some of it's claylike texture and to my surprise a mini feild of 2 ft tall cala lilies grew there and when I found out I had dug up my cala lilies I got upset so that took 4 days to carefully move the bulbs back. Finally I got some soil and put it in my 2.5 gallon first just to test it out the first week was terrific I had clear waters and so I put it near a window where it would get some sun in fall and winter and 1 to 2 hours of sun in the summer. Finally I put some semi aquadc plants and another aquatic plant that I do not know the name of. Also put some hair grass. The hair grass almost melted fully away and the semi aquatic plant Wich is a close relative of the lucky bamboo took care of the extra nutritionts. And then I took out all the plants except the hair grass. I forgot about it for 4 weeks and I did not see the water turn brown and I forgot to mention the 1 inch cap of gravle I put on. When I came back to the bowl I saw the hair grass took over and some duck weed I put in previously had taken over. And I have not done any water changes since ever. And so after I did this I took it down and tried this again to make sure this was for real and I just put it back up and everything is up and running and my hair grass again is melting and that's where I'm at and I also added some micro swords. I also set up a 10 gallon bowl useing this soil and to my surprise I think I think the nitrogen cycle has already started mainly due to my fire amazon sword has 3 runners and my micro swords are taking over and my dwarf sag I just put in is putting on some new leafs.

Syahirul Aiman That's good in theory, but Bettas are notorious for killing other fish even their own kind. They are known as "Siamese fighting fish" for a reason, they are very aggressive! They also can get stressed with other fish due to how territorial they are by nature. Really they are happiest alone.

Please don’t support the tropical fish trade by purchasing fish. If you enjoy watching fish, consider downloading one of the many colorful and realistic fish-themed computer screensavers available on the Web. Don’t support businesses or fairs that give fish away in contests or promotions. In the United Kingdom, it’s illegal to give fish as prizes or sell animals to children under the age of 16, and guardians must provide a “suitable environment” for all animals. A similar law is in effect in Reggio Emilia, Italy.

You have done everything possible to make this gorgeous but if you scared about your livestock you would know round glass is just animal cruelty. Fish get disoriented and everything is distorted. Have you ever looked at your surroundings through a clear glass filled with water. Besides all that, that fish is too big for that bowl. Just because it laid eggs doesn't mean it is happy. Animals can also produce babies because they feel it is a last resort before they become extinct.

the soil is regular organic garden soil. the compost in the soil feeds the plants for a very long time. also, the fish food and fish waste add nutrients for the plants. I never cleaned the substrate.

another benefit of all those plants with a betta.... it breaks up his line of vision to the "intruder"(which is really just his own reflection) he must go flare up at and defend against. this makes for a more relaxed fish.

Foo the Flowerhorn - 2 years ago
If the plants are doing great, like growing well, and if you get algae, you could add the cleaning crew like snails or cheap shrimp around 2 weeks or so. don't add anything expensive at that stage. but if you add the cleaning crew, I think you should do water changes more often, like maybe 10% each day or every other day. for fish, I would wait 2 months. but again, only if the plants are doing well and growing well. after the tank has reached balance, you don't have to change the water often. maybe 25% each week. it really depends on how well your plants do. your tank could reach balance in 2 ~ 3 months, or maybe a little earlier.

if you did the walstad method like me, soil with gravel cap setup without filter, I think it's your led light. I used a cfl light. low watt led lights can accelerate algae growth quite a lot.

Foo the Flowerhorn i had many dwarf sag in those empty spaces, but since it all covered by this algae i had to removed them. I used ada amazonia soil. So what i should do is siphone loose algae , water change, experiment with lighting, and wait for my plants to take over? Got it, thx for your help
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 2 years ago
Ok, just saw your pics. yea, algae has spread quite a lot. at this point, what I would do is take your betta out temporarily while cleaning the tank. I would use a toothbrush and manually remove all the algae. do 50% water change and siphon out all the lose algae. one of the reasons you're getting algae is there's lots of open space without plants in the front section of the tank. all that open space is just soil. plant soil is it? that'll leach out lots of nutrients and all that nutrient is staying in the water. the nutrients need to to be taken up by the plants or else algae will use it. until the plants are growing well, you gotta do a little more frequent water changes to get rid of the extra nutrients the soil is leaching out. after cleaning, I would put more plants in the open space in the front. or if you don't want to risk getting more plants, you gotta do more frequent water changes...I would do 30% every 3~4 days. and yea, experiment with the dimmer and duration. from the picture, it's impossible to tell how bright the light actually is b/c the camera automatically adjusts the brightness for the picture.
alex bomb
alex bomb - 2 years ago

Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 2 years ago
phosphates help grow algae, but it also helps plants to grow. with led dimmer, you might have to play around with the brightness and duration and see how things react. again, maybe if you let me see your tank, I might be able to help more.
alex bomb
alex bomb - 2 years ago
I checked my tap water for phosphates and it's pretty high. Do you think I should switch to RO water? Also i bought LED dimmer, Should i increase lighting duration? since im reducing lighting intensity
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 2 years ago
liquid carbon will help, but I think it'll also help the algae. I couldn't say if you should start over since I've never seen your tank. but if you think the algae problem is too great and you can't fight it, yea, resetting might be the only option.
alex bomb
alex bomb - 2 years ago
Foo the Flowerhorn im planning to dose liquid carbon and see how my plant do. What do you think? Or should i tear down my tank and start all over?
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 2 years ago
yea, if there's algae and plants growing at the same time, algae will win over every time. only defense plants have are by releasing chemicals to fight off the algae. that's why in nature, when the plants are very healthy, algae can't take over the plants, but will grow on rocks and branches and whatnot. but only the healthy and fast growing plants will be able to release enough chemicals to fight off algae. if the plants aren't healthy or grow too slowly, they can't fight off the algae. if there are enough healthy plants in the tank, algae won't even grow on rocks or branches b/c the entire tank water is full of algae fighting plant chemicals. but that usually takes lots of plants. if you look at very lush and successful algae free tanks on youtube or on the internet, you can see that the entire tank is full of plants. that's why algae can't grow. if you're dosing with ferts each week, the ferts must be taken up by the plants. so at the end of the week, if the you get more algae growth instead of more plant growth, you gotta do big water change to get rid of the ferts. for the light duration, it's a balance you gotta achieve for your specific tank. it'll depend on whether you're dosing co2, water volume, how many plants you have, and how much you dose ferts. as mentioned in the video, I did 13 hours of CFL light a day for the first 2 months, then 12 hours of CFL thereafter. this is pretty much unheard of anywhere on youtube or the internet. but it worked for my specific setup. growing plants can be really easy or it can be very difficult if algae outgrows the plants. sometimes by luck, everything'll work out, and other times if you're constantly fighting algae, it can be very frustrating. I personally never won against the algae when it took over the tank. I have successfully killed off 100% of the algae by using algaecide, but they came back 2 weeks later with full force. so it's all about balance and initially winning the battle against algae so that the plants grow fast and healthy and take care of themselves by releasing algae fighting chemicals. There is a method where you dose lots of ferts, then one week later, do a huge water change. repeat this each week. this method can grow plants reaaly fast. but this method might not work for you since algae is already established. I have also used hydrogen peroxide to kill off cyano bacteria and algae by spot bombing them, and that gave enough time for the plants to establish themselves and the those spots, the algae didn't grow.
alex bomb
alex bomb - 2 years ago
First month, I turned my lighting on for 8-10 hours (too much i know).Put ferts once a week. And then diatom appear on glass and my nerite snail get rid of it pretty fast. Then it start to appear this brown hair algae (small amount) on vals and didnt cause any harm. At the same time , there's BGA (cynanobacteria) hijacked my dwarf sag and started to spread all over substrate and plants. As a last resort , I did blackout treatment and it's gone and never come back. My plants was a bit lethargic (yellowish and some dying leaves) but its doing okay now. And then this brown hair algae suddenly growing fast and spread everywhere. My theory is they took over when my plants were weak. I did ferts last week and my plants seem growing well but so did the algae.
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 2 years ago
with, led lights, finding the right balance can be hard to pinpoint b/c every manufacturer's leds are different. even what wattage for what volume of tank can be nearly impossible to say. I think if the algae is growing too fast, I would suggest dimming the led to a lower setting and see what happens. but it could other things that might be off. the reason algae growth happens is b/c there are lots of nutrients in the water, but the plants aren't absorbing them enough, so the algae grows.
alex bomb
alex bomb - 2 years ago
http://www.zetlight.com/productshow.php?id=356&sort_id=28 ,im using this lighting and my tank dimension 60x30x35 cm. Is it too strong?
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 2 years ago
it's hard to say without knowing your setup. sounds like your light is too strong maybe, or it's wrong type of led. only way I know is to physically remove them, then maybe spot bomb it with hydrogen peroxide. or I guess you could bomb your tank with algaecide. but they will come back if something is still off in your tank. Your plants should take in most of the nutrients and release chemicals to fight algae. if the algae is winning, it can be very difficult to reverse it.

They seem happy, but haven't built a bubble nest yet, it's really bothering me. I also don't have a heater, im worried putting one in such a small tank will over heat them. Would you recommend an heating pad or a light above the tank shining in? Thank you for any info you provide, if you provide.

I have three low techs up and running as we speak. Can you please answer two questions for me? Did you ever have protein "film" on the water surface (im having this issue on all my tanks)? Can these low tech 10gal + aquariums be successful without a powerhead pump? Thank you.
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
yes, that's surface bio-film. mostly bacteria. the tank is heading toward balance. my setups got bio-film for 2 months or so. after that nearly none. but still some here and there from time to time. you can use paper towel to remove them, or I just used a cup to remove them. cup method was better. that was the 5% water change I mentioned in the description on one of my videos. this method can be done in 10g or bigger, but only thing is that in bigger tanks without powerhead there could be cold spots without moving the water around. regular heater might only heat part of the tank. you probably need to use under gravel wire heaters if you're gonna go no powerhead route.

it's important that the plants do well from the beginning. starting with lots plants would yield better result, IMO. or starting with few plants that grow very fast.

Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
that's newborn mealworms. they are very hard to find. I contacted a mealworm breeder to sell me the newborns. if your bettas aren't eating pellets, you might have to try another kind. some bettas are picky eaters. the food that ALL bettas will love is frozen bloodworms. try that. I'm sure they'll eat it. the way I do it is, break off the bloodworm cubes, rinse them in tap water, and only feed little at a time. don't plop the frozen cube in the betta tank.

I think the oto is breathing a little bit too heavy... And why was it alone?
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
at 3:52, he was completely frozen because of the camera. it's really difficult to film fish. lots of times they don't do normal stuff, or in the oto's case completely freeze, or sometimes freak out. the otos lived there over 5 months or so fine. never sick, and always ate boiled spinach fine, and mostly they just grazed algae on plants all over the tank. they hung out together for a while in the beginning, then later, they just did their own stuff. all I can say is that there's more than one way to skin a cat, as they say, and sometimes conventional widsom isn't always completely true, I think.
SpiritOfWolf91
SpiritOfWolf91 - 3 years ago
At 3:52 you can see it in the upper left corner. I know that otos are able to breathe atmospheric air, as well as bettas. But that seemed a little bit to much exhaution.
That many fish are able to live in a smaller group than recommendet is also clear. I had a Yasuhikotakia sidthimunki for two years, alone. Now I have a group of 18 and they behave completely different. They never stop nudging each other and lying in piles one over the other.
Your otos can't be too unhappy, otherwise they wouldn't have lived so long. I didn't know you had two of them, so it's alright. I just would have had a big problem, if it had been alone.
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
I don't think the oto was breathing heavily. sorry I don't see it. I added 2 ottos at around 2 1/2 months mark. they were still doing great after 7 months mark. contrary to popular belief, they can do fine in smaller numbers if the setup can support them. when I moved the tank to the 5 gallon high cube, I didn't move the otos with it b/c I wasn't confident they would do well in the new setup. I gave them to a LFS.

Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
yea, someone else mentioned that in another video. I've never seen my betta distoriented. I think if the bow is small like 1~2 gallons, b/c the curvature is much higher, it could occur. also b/c there were lots of plants, maybe that helped my betta know where he was at all times. this bowl is huge if you saw it in person. it's 7.5 gallons. but maybe fast swimming fish like tetras might be more susceptible to disorientation problems in a small bowl. I've never seen my otos disoriented either.
NightmareNessii
NightmareNessii - 3 years ago
thanks for the quick answer! :) i heard a lot in forums that fishes shouldn't be kept in bowls because they don't have many orientation points. whats your opinion? is it different with betta fish?
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
no, I never did. the biggest change to the bowl was 50% water change. I did that rarely. usually smaller water changes. I only did 50% during first 2 months when the water became too brown. for planted tanks, I wouldn't go bigger than 50% water change.

hmm, without a heater, the temps will fluctuate, unless your house keeps same temps all year long. at temps lower than 26°C, the plants will grow slower. at temps over 28°C, the plants might not do well if they are not established yet.

Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
if you get mixed colored shrimp, like blue, yellow, and red all in one tank, they will breed. the babies have no color. they looked like regular wild clear-brown color shrimp. not desirable I think. also, most shrimp are very sensitive to high temperature. if the temps go over 27°C, they might have a hard time. especially CRS shrimp are very sensitive to high temps and water parameters. so don't get CRS. Cherry shrimp and their cousins do a little better at higher temps and they are a little more hardy. cherry, blue velvet, and yellow shrimp all did pretty well. amano shrimp also were very hardy. amanos don't breed in fresh water, so you can get that with other shrimp. so if you're gonna get shrimp, just get one type of shrimp and maybe amanos.

Hi foo, i need help...just wanna ask if a starved flowerhorn for 4months will be able to make a recovery and grow, because my friend gave me his flowerhorn he said that it didnt grow at all, looks the same when it was a fry...because he starved it and had poor water quality, i was wondering if it can fully recover and grow? Thanks foo love your vids!
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
sorry to hear that. yea, 4 months is quite a long time for him to be stunted. little fellow must've been very resilient to have survived that long in those conditions. it hard to say how much he will recover, but with good water quality and lots of good food and love, I'm sure he'll make a good recovery. probably not as big as normally kept fh in an optimal condition, but you never know...he might make a full recovery. good luck.

Hello
Watch your video
I started the aquarium.
But the color of the water
More and more green.
I do not know why.
Is there any problem?
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
yea, plants that have not established yet can be more sensitive to temperature. at those temps, they might be ok, but any higher, they might have a hard time. once they are established, they might be able to handle higher temps. plants can melt in the beginning, but if they have new growth, everything should be ok. the color of the water should get brown, not green. when it gets too brown, do 50% water change. the water will continue to get brown for 2~3 months or so. but it should not get brown every day. green water is b/c of a type of algae bloom. if your plants are healthy and growing, you won't get much algae. it's b/c your plants are having a hard time, that's why you got algae bloom. another thing, you shouldn't use LEDs for this kind of setup. CFL(compact florescent light) is the best. I used OSRAM 14W coolwhite color. since your tank is similar size, you should try that. I actually tried 3 different kinds of lights. that was the best one. when I used a LED light, it got algae very fast. b/c you have a filter in there, it'll make your water brown faster b/c there will be more water movement. plants don't need a filter in this kind of setup. the pearl grass should be doing pretty good. is it? how long ago did you set up the tank? do you have livestock in there?
songha kim
songha kim - 3 years ago
Oh, Thanks for the reply

This is South Korea, the temperature is high.

Does the color of the water change?
The hairgrass turned brown.
My setup
The tank is 35x25x30cm
1 inch organic soil(vermicompost and chicken manure compost)
1.5 inch black sand
Baby tears, Pearl grass cuba, hairgrass, Yamato shrimp
LED light 36pcs, 8.64w
Hanging filter 5w
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
there might be too much light and too much nutrients in the water. it's hard to say without seeing your setup. if you don't have any fish in there, do a big water change. if you tell me your setup, I might be able to help more.

did you get a detritus worm issue in here after making the plants grow? did you get mosquitto larvae for having the bowl empty with no fish?
Lloyd Lo
Lloyd Lo - 3 years ago
Foo the Flowerhorn oh okay. will do. i think ill clean up the bowl and throw away aa much of the contents right now. except the rotala which i want to keep. i might just buy hair grass for my plants and a short growing plant so the bowl doesnt get over crowded. thanks! i will do the tips ive learned from your videos like how to use potting soil (i know our soil is organic cuz fert is expensive and i doubt the florists sold us this potting soil with pesticides when our plant is just a hardy xmas tree)

thanks a lot! youre a pure hearted youtuber mate. keep it up. i hope more people discover your intentions
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
detritus worms go away if there's no more food. they won't eat the plants. you should just leave them there until your plants have been established. yea, put the net for mosquitoes. basically, you don't want to disturb the plants too much after you plant them. uprooting a plant is very shocking for the plants and can take a long time to recover. basically plant the plants, and don't ever mess with them until they've grown and you gotta trim them. I fed the shrimp hikari shrimp pellets once every 2 days. if you wait a month or two, and the plants are doing very well, and your water is very clear, you can put the shrimp in. if you leave your bowl for 2 weeks unattended, since it's initial setup, it's hard to say what's gonna happen.
Lloyd Lo
Lloyd Lo - 3 years ago
do you think i should clean up the detritus worms first before leaving it for the trip? or the bowl will do fine with them inside, and i should just wait til i add a fish inside to eat them
Lloyd Lo
Lloyd Lo - 3 years ago
Foo the Flowerhorn omg thanks for noticing/reading my queries. thank you!

just a follow up question.
right now, it has detritus worms with the plants and a lot of it... what should i do at the moment? will the detritus worms eat my plants while im gone? or should i just let them be cuz according to most of my research, theyre good for the bowl? im gonna leave for indonesia for 2 weeks straight and i plan to leave this bowl with no livestock so it can do well without me. should i clean the bowl and plants first before i go? how do you get rid of detritus worms anyway? should i also cover the bowl with a net so no mosquitto larvae can enter it?

im also planning on replacing the java fern (since its paling) with horse hair grass? im not sure whats it called but it basically looks like freshwater grass from the pet store.

also, when you put the shrimp in, did you have to do water checks and something to assure water quality? i dont have those sets and its pretty expensive.. so should the planted aquarium for quite a long time be enough for the shrimp? do you feed your shrimp btw or you barely need to cuz the plants/algae do it for u? if you do, what do u feed them? flakes? hahahahahahaha


im so sorryyyyy i just have so many questions cuz doing research online gives you SO many answers that vary
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
I never got detritus worms, but there were mysterious microscopic little critters here and there. most of them looked like water fleas. never got mosquito larvae b/c I don't get mosquitoes inside. for your bowl, it's too small of water volume to house a betta with this kind of plant setup. you should use organic potting soil, not rice husks. you shouldn't give it sunlight until the plants are pretty well established. your bowl's water volume is too small to give it direct sunlight for too long b/c it'll heated up too fast. your plant selection will out grow the small bowl too fast and won't have enough room for a betta. you should definitely try to grow the plants first, and don't put any live stock for 2 month or so... you shouldn't have a betta in there. but you could probably get 2 shrimps after the plants are well established. but shrimp are very sensitive to temperature. if your temps go abover 28°C, the shrimp could have a very hard time. bigger tanks are always easier to take care of than small ones. less than one gallon ones are notoriously difficult to take care of it. if you want to put a betta, I would get 5gallons(20 liters) or more.

You're not referring to water conditioner, right? I've never heard of water clarifying products but probably because I haven't looked haha. I'm getting ready to redo my betta tank into a Walstad so I'll look into it if I run into that problem again!

Andro Borg Wondering this too. I had a dirt-planted tank following the Walstad method, and the cloudiness never went away so I had to add back the filter. It never cleared up the way this tank did.

Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
Please check the description. um, this is walstad method. the plants are the filter. the plants and bacteria take care of the poop. he wasn't swimming in poop water. spherical aquariums are good when they are big enough. I think most people get caught up in small bowls and think it applies to every bowl and every fish. there are tens, hundreds, or thousands of gallons professional sphere aquariums or cylindrical aquariums, both fresh or salt water setups.

Foo the Flowerhorn there are much stories from ppl that their betta/goldfish live 3-4 years in bowl. But please read about diseases resulting from living in spherical vessel. And imagine: someone closed you in shower, in spherical shower and you have to live in your excrements all your life, without going out. How would it be? Can you survive in that conditions? Yes. Is it great life? No. my betta has 25 liter tank with filter, plants and cover. And i know that he has good life.

Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
I never cleaned it. but I did do water changes. check the description for more details. that's only possible if the plants are healthy and growing. all the poop gets broken down by bacteria then gets used up by the plants. algae growth is prohibited by the all the healthy and fast growing plants b/c plants release chemicals that naturally fight algae. ottos cats, snails, amano shrimp also help in controlling the algae.

Hmm... As for the baby shrimps, yeah, that's pretty sad. I think all fishes would eat anything that they can fit in their mouths. I'll try this one out pretty soon when I've more free time. I've had luck with keeping two females in one tank though, didn't bother putting up a boxing match each time they met. hehe

i have wiped off all algae during my last water change and there are no signs of them since then thats the reason why i have added few more plants so that it can take over the algae. i have been keeping fresh water fish for almost 2 years in my 35 gallon fish tank and i wanted to try out plants. i had a fish bowl already purchased way back so i m giving a try to plants if the plant and betta survive and starts growing normally then i m already preparing for a 10g fish tank and will replace the bowl.with it. Its an experimental run and gaining ideas for growing plants and live stock together.
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
hmm. the point of this video was that it's a big bowl. over 7 gallons of water. in a small bowl with small volume of water, there can be high fluctuation of water parameters very fast. this is the main reason lots of people don't recommend small bowls. it's actually counter intuitive, but big tanks are much easier to take care of than small bowls. If you deviate from my setup, it's very difficult for me find out what's wrong. that cfl should work, but it's hard to say since the plants aren't established yet and you started out with leds and the algae has started to gain a foothold. If I were you, I would do small daily water changes for your betta, do 12 hours of light day, and wait a week to see how the plants, algae, and betta do. do you know the temps of your bowl? temps are very important for the plants to get established, also.
Nepali Fish Guy
Nepali Fish Guy - 3 years ago
its around 2g as it can accomodate 6-7 litres of water. the fish is doing pretty well its color have brightend and there are no signs of fin rot and its eating normally only thing is i have added carpet plant and i have checked the video u have said. so i guess 5watt cfl light with 6500k day light is sufficient for my bowl then.
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
how big is your bowl? if you know the diameter, you can figure out the how many gallons. or if know the circumference, you can also know. google sphere aquarium calculator. usually you want to go by 2~3 watts per gallon. since you put your betta in before the plants are established, you gotta do small daily water changes, or the betta might get fin rot. this is why I suggest adding betta after the plants are established, which could take 2 months. if you think your betta is not doing well, you might want to move him to another tank. did you read the descriptions on the video I mentioned?
Nepali Fish Guy
Nepali Fish Guy - 3 years ago
i have changed to cfl and now i am unable to determine if 5w cfl with 6500k daylight enough for the plants to grow? i tried 15w cfl and it was tooo bright and guess betta fish didnt liked it so i went for 5w. need your suggestion. :)
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
I mentioned earlier, leds are not the best choice for a walstad method. 3 hours of light won't be enough for your plants to get established. it might prohibit algae growth, but it might also prohibit plants getting established. I did 13 hours of light a day for the first 2 months. check out the video of the 5 gallon one I did after the bowl. read the description there. I wrote in details about everything.
Nepali Fish Guy
Nepali Fish Guy - 3 years ago
the plants are doing quite good and i have also added java fern recently and it is also doing good. may be because of my lighting the algae are growing i have reduced the time period of keeping the lights on now i only turn lights on for 3 hrs at max.
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
you just put your plants in. are they growing? vallisneria grow by shooting out runners. it can take vallisneria a long time to get used to the setup. if the plants are not growing, or growing very slowly, you'll probably get algae. also you're using led? yea, you might algae with leds much faster than CFL.
Nepali Fish Guy

i have used cap gravel above the dirt but the thing is that i have seen algae on the cap gravel. is it good or bad? the betta seems to be happy with the setup only thing that is worrying me is algae as it is my first experience with plant so do help me out.
Foo the Flowerhorn
Foo the Flowerhorn - 3 years ago
I like your setup. your betta looks really cool. did you use dirt and no cap gravel? that might make it difficult to keep the water quality good. You might have to do frequent water changes for your betta until the plants are established.

I've known a few people in the past who never do water changes on their tanks. the fish were big and healthy and perfect looking. almost all of them, the tanks were packed with healthy plants. some plants scary big looking. so it's definitely possible. for your tank, since you'll be introducing plants now, I would do water changes until the plants have been established. probably a few months. the only way to know for sure whether you don't have to do water changes is to periodically test the water.

both of those filters create nitrate. pretty much only thing that'll get rid of that would be lots of plants.
