Not sure exactly where the line is between pico and nano tanks (I'd like to think pico is below 5G), but in any case, here's my rather messy 7.5G bowfront.

Good point. At what point does a Nano tank become a Pico tank?

This holds about 2-3 cups. One crypt, some frog bit, a sprig of anacharis, one snail , one red shrimp.

Sorry the picture is sideways. Any way to fix it here?

Tiny but highly relaxing.

This tank is no longer running but I'd have to say it's been one of if not my favorite tanks ever. 2.5g betta tank w/ ghost shrimp and 2 otos

Okay, my picos are uglier than everyone else's here, but I can say they are picoer and lower tech. No filter, no heater, no CO2. They sit next to a window for light. Total cost: some bladder snails, MTS, Christmas tree moss, moneywort, and unknown plant cuttings from my 55, an old mini grape juice bottle, an old coffee jar, and an old soda bottle. The grapejuice bottle, the smallest is 0.049 gal.
