    So I'm not super experienced with fishtank, but I do know that alot of fish would need something larger than a single gallon. Currently I have a plant in there, but I was wondering if there is any kind of fish I can put in there too? I was also thinking shrimp would be cool, but are they hard to care for? Thanks in advanced.

    What about a Marino Ball house, or a small aquascape scene?

    I tried shrimp in a 1 gallon before, and it was just really difficult to keep on top of the water parameters, I wouldn't do it again. An aquascape with a Nerite snail sounds like a good idea to me:)

    Leave the plant in it, like said above, too hard to keep water parameters correct, and awfully small for any animal IMO.

    How about scuds? A colony is perfectly fine in a 1 gallon and will do very well. They make good fish treats if you have too many, and they are funny to watch. They swim like little rockets with feet. :)

    If you "Pinterest" you can find a lot of really nice very small scale aquascapes on there; I mean, really really beautiful ideas!!!

    I have 3 small bowls that someone gave to me. I am using one now to house a single shrimp and some baby java ferns while my shrimp tank cycles. The shrimp was a stowaway with a large java fern from someone else's tank that is growing in a 10 gallon in the basement while we get the 65 it is likely going to ready, but I wanted to keep a close eye on the shrimp. I have also used a bowl to hold our betta for a few minutes while doing a 100% water change when he was sick I don't think I would keep anything other than plants in a bowl otherwise. It would be hard to keep on top of water parameters. ... and you sort of need 2 bowls. When it was time to change out the water in the shrimp's temporary bowl I just prepared a second bowl and scooped him and his plants out and into the new bowl.
