One Hour Tanks

Hey everyone!

This is the first video of a new series where I setup small aquascapes.
The concept of these tanks is to setup short term scapes in different glass containers. For one hour. The limited lifetime of the tanks allow me to setup unique aquascapes without the long-term constraints like needing a filter and use different types of moss.
The tanks are filled with the water coming from the tank the Ramshorn snails and the RCS came from. (So it's cycled water).

More to come. =)

See ya

Beautiful scape, there's a lot of detail and contrast for such a small area.
BTW, where can I get some of those speedy snails?

The plants are different types of moss. I couldn't find all of the names... :s

Plagiomnium undulatum (Hedw.) T.Kop.

Plagiochila

Dicranum scoparium Hedw.

Hypnum Imponens

Polytrichum formosum

And the rock is in fact petrified wood found in the Alps =)
