The End

Dismantled along with two of my antique tanks. Too many tanks takes too much time to maintain properly so I'm down to 3 now. If anyone is interested in purchasing this setup you can PM me.

I'm going to have to remove the submerged LED in the smaller flask as I just noticed a huge amount of algae growing in there. Stupid nerite doesn't seem to be interested in the algae, it just seems to want to hang around above the water line.
I could envision a Mad Scientist having say Moss or Java fern in with a Betta for practical purposes.

Update, new additions

I finished out the glassware on this tank with a Soxhlet extractor body to fill in the remaining arm of one of the multi-adapters, an Allihn condenser, and a 105 degree bent adapter. I especially like the allihn for its multiple interior bubbles. I also placed a beautiful blue and yellow betta in the smaller flask. The lighting wasn't right so the photos aren't very good but it gives you an idea of what he looks like.

Yea, my wife would agree with you on this. She fails to see the value in my aquatic endeavors.

I didn't keep track of everything. The most expensive parts were the large flask and the ADA glass feeder. The connectors weren't all that expensive but all together there's several hundred $ here. I'm not finished with it yet. I plan on adding a few more things as I go. It's unique among aquariums as far as I can tell. I need to post more photos as I have the smaller flask aquascaped now too.
