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

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!

|pedropete||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...)|

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.

|jreich||be carefull, that glass is not very strong. i once had the same idea as you, the glass thing was a center piece at a wedding so i took it home. i accidently broke it, but it took very minimul force to do so.|

I really dig the magnification-factor of the cylinder also. It makes for a neat look. I hope whatever I end up stocking with is going to look pretty cool.
