Show Me Your Self Sustaining Nano Tanks

I'm thinking of moving my endlers to one and would love to know how to make a tank self sustaining!

Yeah, in a nano, it's hard for me at least to figure out or comprehend 'self-sustaining' when params fluctuate so much more in a nano.

It also depends on what you consider 'nano'.

Are you talking about a mason jar, or a 10er?

'self-sustaining' falls into the same category as "Easter bunny" & "Military intelligence"...

We all WISH they actually existed in real life but alas they're all just fairy tales

AND, if your putting both genders of Endlers in there, your even farther from reality
then you started...

well if you count a large mason Jar with some algae and pond snails and no intervention for a long time, I scrapped one about a month ago, evaporation was getting to bad now that we are in summer, and I was to lazy to do anything so I decided to dump, it was kinda cool looking though. Unfortunately my phone with all the pictures died, so I don't have them anymore...
