THIS IS A NANO (1 liter petre dish :P)

Don't know how I ended up doing this, but I like it a lot XD.











As you can see, it's a 1 Liter petre dish-- no substrate, mosses tied to a small plastic mesh square underneath. Mosses were collected locally-- I have no idea what species it is.

That is amazing! What are you using for lighting? How long has it been running? Do you do any water changes?

Way cool! Glad to know I'm not the only obsessed planter in the world! I live the idea of using it for a centerpiece on a table!

30g planted with cories, white clouds, Harlequin Rasboras ,ottos.
10g planted with glowlight tetras and an otto.
Outdoor pond with one common goldfish and comets.
5.5g with endlers.

a little dining room table ornament, cool.

My mom said that she didn't want anything with bacteria on her table though so *sigh* . . .

Rasbora-- I set it up yesterday, but the whole nitrogen cycle is already up and running. The moss had it's own mud still clung to the underside, so there is nutrients/substrate of sorts. Lighting is an overhead hood my school bought for providing light to plant experiments for biology classes. Basically there's a raised hood above that has 2x 40W florescent bulbs, under which is this tank, and my paludarium. The tank's been set up for about a week, and yes I do water changes. I have to use a spoon to get the water out.

John-- I dunno man, they might get in a fight with the flowerhorns I'm planning to put in.

I hope she knows that her table is TEEMING with bacteria... just do a cheek swab on her and show her what the culture looks like under a microscope.
great little nano! if you could hermetically seal those, you would have a very marketable item!

I don't know, maybe this qualifies for pico (10^-12) or even femto (10^-15) tank - seems a little small to still be a nano!

pico sounds about right.

I think she means "bacteria that wouldn't NORMALLY be on the table"

This just reinforces my ambition to use a fertilizer bottle cap as a planted pico tank. I will probably go with some anubias, an Amazon sword...Oh yeah, and definately some discus.

Two 1 GA desktops, a 5 gallon, a 2.5 gallon, a 10 gallon, a 20 gallon, a 25 gallon, and two 75 gallon tanks, all planted.
I am an expert on algae, so ask me if you have questions. I know how to grow it, just not how to get rid of it.

Tell her she'd better not sit on the toilet seat, either...or touch anything near it if anyone has flushed with the lid still open (you'd be amazed how far 'flush' spray can actually travel).
