A Little Bit Smaller Now

Not going for any fancy 'scaping, just having fun seeing how small a planted "tank" I can keep healthy and growing.

Flora: dwarf baby tears, star grass, frogbit.
Fauna: 1x juvie rams horn snail

It's far too small for any ordinary stock--even the ramshorn will eventually have to be switched out as it gets too large--but giving serious consideration to hunting up another damselfly larvae to add. Had one in my scud/daphnia jar but a water beetle that came in with my last plant acquisition gobbled 'im up. (water beetle since captured and released back into the wild from whist he came!)

The rock looks huge in there.

My roommate says I'll die by giant turtle.

Details, man! What lighting have you got? CO2 rates? Dosing?

:P

That's pretty neat. I might have to put one like that on the desk at work.

My tiniest tank got a complete overhaul thanks to a rampaging cat. Replanted about four days ago. Unintentionally hosting a very tiny baby cherry shrimp that hitch-hiked in with a clipping.

let us know if the shrimp makes it. I also recently setup something tiny like this. Its a micro planted bowl, except i am starting it out with a wabi kusa ball thing with a bunch of random plants(its also starting out emersed.) Yours is much smaller than mine though. is yours on a window sill like mine?

A couple months ago I moved most of my planted vases to a single shelf in my living room that gets all day indirect light and supplemented with a hanging LED unit that's on about 10 hrs a day.

So far the shrimplet is doing great. Found a molted skin yesterday and the little bugger is constantly scooting around picking at plants. Only adding feed--a microbit of flake food--1x weekly. Eventually I'll just submerge the whole glass in another vase and see if I can coax him out, but given his pinhead size, no hurry.
