1 Gallon Low Tech Collectoritis Tank
 
I just trimmed down my 1 gallon betta tank. The problem I've been having with the HM is that accidentally pulling up one node will uproot an entire system of HM :/ so the "carpet" looks like it's been turned upside down and inside out... I'm hoping it will settle down again soon T_T

Plants tend to stunt in here... which suits my purposes fairly well...

Wonderful tank! Lucky fish.. I'd live in it ;)

What filter are you running? Also, what lighting do you have to sustain all of that?

Btw this is totally off topic... but I have a Rhode Island Red hen back in Australia :D

I'm running an azoo mignon 60/redsea nano/ deep blue nano (they're almost all identical) and a 23a 6500k cfl. :)
here's a pic of the light, it's shared between two tanks
