1 Gallon Cube...Ideas?

So, I've got this little one gallon cube sitting around and I was thinking that maybe one nice centerpiece plant might look cool in it. Something like a lily that would grow under water and send a flower stem up to the top. But, I have no idea what would fit in here that would look nice. I was thinking of using a desk lamp and spiral CF lights that I already have.

Anyone have any suggestions on what to put in here?

The lily might end up outgrowing the tank. But other than that, that's the only problem I see.

yes the lily is no good for such a short and small tank. but if you can go find a red tiger lotus (a real one) or some mini variety (sometimes people just sell young plans so watch out) You might get the plant you're looking for.

You could also try one crypt or some smaller species of sword plant to be the centerpiece. (bigger than microsword/pygmy chain sword, but way smaller than amazon sword)

Of course, I just saw your 1 gallon shrimp bowl thread, Newman. Now I am having second thoughts! LOL!
