STS_1OO There's quite a bit going on at a very nano level and its intriguing to say the least. Please keep up update as to what becomes of this.

Thanks for sharing!

kingfisherfleshy Did have a casualty today. Fish arent aggressive towards each other but with no plants in the bottom they are not doing well.

Had these fish before in a 10g and they ate the smallest NLS pellets but these havent touched them.

I was thinking frog as well. I am a member on dendroboarddotcom and they said it was too small for any frogs, including a native spring peeper.

An invert might be interesting, not sure what I would put in there though, it would almost have to be aquatic. I dont really like the idea of small ornamental shrimp, they seem too fragile for a tank like this. Maybe once I add some plants.

I have three Tricopsis pumila in there - but I am assuming that one will become dominant. So far so good - its been over a week and no signs of aggression and all three are still alive. Have not gotten them to feed yet though however.

nice job!
Thank you very much...those plants I ordered still havent arrived, and I havent added any plants for the top. I think that eventually I will have a very small bromeliad growing out the top of it. A couple mosses and maybe an orchid as well.

kingfisherfleshy Ordered a java fern, anubias nana and petite, and pygmy crypts for this tank.

So the underwater/emergent part of this tank should be done soon.

Maybe I could include some small super hardy shrimp as well?

Thanks! Not exactly what I had in mind when I started, but I like the end result. Like I said earlier, there is still work to be done!

You are probably right. These gouramis are tiny though, less than an inch. Water quality is fine though, and as air breathers volume doesnt matter so much. I will try it out and if it doesnt work they can go to a bigger tank easily.

Anti climatic here - just an 18w spiral CFL.

Think that is too much light? I had my doubts, but I just had it around.

As the floaters and stuff grow out I think it will be fine.
