do you need to plug the tank into a computer?

Well, it's supposed to run from a USB plug; it has a mini-B slot for the power for the "light" and the pump. I just plugged in my charger from an old cell phone. I haven't actually put any batteries in the clock part yet.

Man I just got one for my birthday. I am excited to get it up and running, probably a cherry shrimp or 2.

could the size be difficult to sustain stable water conditions for cherry shrimp?

Yea it is not going to be easy to keep it perfect, luckily the temp stay within a few degrees at work. I will likely be bringing water from one of my 20G tanks to keep it topped off and do weekly water changes so hopefully the parameters will stay relatively even.

It was a pain to keep and obviously the LED's weren't worth diddly-squat.

So I tore it apart and plan to use the nifty little 5V pump in a desktop paludarium I'm working on.

Mine's still going on my desk at work, it has an anubias and some not so healthy looking moss and a few snails, I tried to update the light but the new one still isn't bright enough.

Very cool, thank you for the photos!
I must disagree...that thing is basically a cereal bowl....a snail or maybe a shrimp or some baby shrimp to grow out.
