I'm moving back to college dorms in two days! ...Leaving behind all my fish and aquariums with the parents. Fortunately, I come home every other weekend to tend to all that jazz.
But all the time in between... no aquarium fun.
I've always found pico tanks (and when I say pico, I mean VERY PICO) oddly impressive. And cute.
Mostly just cute.
It's especially impressive when the designer is able to realistically and believably capture the scope of an environment on a much larger scale (Grand Canyon? Mountains and valleys?) and fit/control all this overwhelming emerald and rocky substance into a... 3"x3". And that's using the tiniest leafed plants possible in the field, though mostly mosses.
So I've decided to also attempt to set up something believable in this 18 oz glass speck of dust, which was formerly used to hold air fresheners.
And here it is, in all its majestic and overwhelming glory of smallness, sitting on top of my 55 gallon.
^(makes it look much larger than it actually is)
Yeah, this is going on my desk in my dorm. The base is too thick and all that to really look like a nano cube, but this is all I have for now.
And if I ever come upon another similarly-shaped transparent cube that is capable of holding water, the two are going to sit right next to each other and grow pretty, small things.
Now that I think about it, I'm actually going to go out and scavenge for one at Daiso tomorrow.

Currently, plans are going for the "mountain range" look.
