    I bought this lil 1 gallon fish bowl from my friend and I don't know what to do with it. It's a grreat choice drum fish bowl (I think?). I was thinking maybe a closed terrarium or maybe use it to culture live food? Definitely not planning on keeping any animals in it (other than maybe some inverts). Any other ideas?

    If I was allowed I would do a small shrimp colony

    You could do snails, shrimp, or daphnia and feed your fish

    Either shrimp or keys

    I'm going to grow moss Emerged in a bowl, maybe with some anubias. I figure I can have two inches or so of water, dirt/clay substrate and some rocks for the java moss to attach to.

    What are keys?

    I think he means really storing keys in the bowl.

    I've had a lot of success with Scotch Mints - they look like marbles but you can eat them!
    I can't just think about living in a 1 gal. bowl...

    Keys are these magical things used to open doorways to strange new places. Just make sure yours are the only ones in the bowl.

    I have one I keep test tube caps and random wet stuff in.

    If I go with a small shrimp colony could I also try culturing daphnia in the same bowl?

    Shouldn't be an issue I wouldn't think. Worst case is the culture doesn't take off and you nuke a few shrimp.
