Fish Bowl with Plants... What can i do to maintain this?

First of all, before you read, I am a total newbie with plants. So please bare with me.

I have a bowl with gravel, water, java fern and moss. And using house led light that is high above bowl. (directly above it)

I just set it up. Pictures are here:

What will I need to make sure plants stay lush and don't die? Fertilization wise. I am hoping to find a good liquid fert over dry fert as its easier for me. ( I will destroy bowl trying to dig my hand and root tablet under gravel)

Also, can I add shrimp or snails to this? There is no filter or heater.

Thank you so much for your help.

Java fern and moss are two of the absolute easiest plants to take care of, in my opinion you don't need any sort of fertilizers.

I'm not so sure about shrimp, but snails should be fine if you do frequent water changes.

Thanks guys.
So no to ferts? Only led light?

Also, no shrimp, only snails? Why is that? And what type of snails.

Thank you again.

I've found shrimp to be more sensitive to water conditions.
