Any pictures of your stuff so far?

Go to Walmart and get their 1 gal. tank it's cheap and it has a light fixture already and uses a 7 watt night light bulb. It works for my nano tank with Yellow dwarf shrimps and low light plants like java fern, java moss, Anubia plants. azoo palm filter item # APD-14052 is $8.99 and works well for a tiny tank. I think the 1 gal. at Walmart comes with an underground filter. The azoo is if you want a better filter system. I put a bio sponge in front of the water out flow to the tank. opSome

Just lookin around and found this and thought it might be worth bringing back... I started a pickle jar about 2 weeks ago and was curious about how this one turned out

I'd go with small internal or a sponge filter with a suction cup
