Lilies need at least 30cm of water over their crown, so that's a no go. Sword might be ok emersed like that.

With some work, I think guppies might be ok, although it depends on if you'd be...

Mine actually tapers as well, and there isn't nearly as much room down there as I'd like. I use pots to keep plants from spreading too much, and bricks to give me different depth levels. That takes...

Just moved my ~20 gallon pond outside for the spring/summer. I'm pretty happy with the canna lilly you can barely see- I divided it a couple days ago, no signs of sprouting at all, and today, there...

I actually do have a 20 high (which admittedly isn't as good as a 20L), it's that I have neither the space nor permission to set it up. My cube is as large as I can go.

I've ended up with 3 unexpectedly large cories in a relatively small tank. The tank is a 12" cube. The largest cory is ~3" long. I already feel bad, but the reason I ended up with them to begin with...

Just making sure you're thinking freshwater fish like trout, perch, catfish, and not saltwater halibut. Salt water and vegetables tend to not mix. (see Idiocracy for further details)

Aside from your first rule (because safety first), I'm gonna have to disagree with you. Do what makes you happy. This raptor is clearly the wrong size for the tank, but honestly, I don't care. I...

Actually as the Emeralds and the Celestial Pearls are in the same family, interbreeding is possible, so it's not recommended to keep them together. That being said, both are ravenous egg eaters, so...

Dwarf sunfish can easily be bred in as little as 2.5 gallons. 30 should be more than enough, but be aware of their picky eating habits. Live food only for most of them

Unfortunately the nerites are a bit better at cleaning every nook and cranny on my velociraptor ornament than I am. For the glass though, nothing beats a glass scraper and a scrubby follow up.
