Pico craze gets crazier

With all this talk about pico tanks, I have decided to set two new ones up. One will be a whiskey shot glass and the other will be a fertilizer bottle cap. I am thinking I will keep one doomed cherry shrimp and some duckweed.
Before you ask, yes I'm kidding.

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.

I like the whiskey shot glass idea . . . no seriously . . .

They have round bottoms though, right?
