TJ Maxx usually carries that vase and they are really inexpensive.

Yep. I got this one at Home Goods (aka TJ Maxx). I think it was around $9.

I did a water change today. I made a baffle out of some sponge to slow the current on the filter. I think I am going to move Jasper (DT betta) into this tank today and he would have been blown around like crazy!

A bunch of stems came up when I changed the water! ARGH! Replanted most of them and added just a tiny bit more microsword. I hope Jasper doesn't pull up my stems. He likes to shimmy around the bottoms of the plants.

I'm also going to Ace to get a lid cut for it. Just in case Jasper decides to go for a leap!

Will post more pics later tonight.

i'll have to check my nearby homegoods for similar cylinders. i'd love to do a no/low tech set-up for a shrimp or maybe some RCS (with frequent water changes of course...)

I know they have the one gallon 8" x6" for 5 bucks and I'm pretty sure they had a two gallon for 9.99. Glass reasonably thick and very clear.

Here are some updated photos. Jasper the betta has moved it, but my camera isn't good enough to get a decent show of him. It doesn't help that he won't hold still. He really is quite an active little guy!



Here is is zooming around the tank.



This is a shot of the sponge baffle that I made so he doesn't get blown around by the current.



And here, again from a distance. This is how I typically view the tank from my desk. I dig it. Sorry it's a little blurry. I am still working on my camera skills!

Dimensions on cylinder?

What are the dimensions on your cylinder? It seems wider than most. Also, baffle--I am constantly amazed at the MacGyver skills of nano tank owners
