Little Pico Tank

Found these Today, While Browsing for House Bits and Peices.

They are 4.00 each and from Instire here in the Uk. They are Also Available in a DVD size.

Perfect for a Pico Betta or Shrimp Tank

ATM I am sing it to Keep the Hikari Packets in.

But I Am gonna Do Either Black or Copper Flourite. Riccia + Java Moss + A tiny Bogwood or Rock.

For Fish = I would Love some Cherry Shrimp and a Betta.

I have a Pico Heater, Probably Wont Bother with a Filter, Just Turkey baster Water Changes.

5 watt Haolgen Lamp for Lighting.

Does that Sound OK.

It seems like you have everything right, I would go with one or the other (Cherry Shrimp or Betta).

Are you sure they're meant to hold water? If the plastic is not thick enough, or the seals not strong enough, it can buckle and break from the weight of the water.

I hope this doesn't sound too stupid, but what is this supposed to be used for? It is a great find and am just curious what it is designed for so I can try looking for something like it.

They are Designed to Store Cd's and Dvd's - I have checked and they are Water Tight, But I am Gonna Reseal them. They are 3.5mm Thick so should be Fine.
I was Gonna Buy a Square vase but they Dont Look Right to Me.

These has nice Clear and Crisper lines.

Thanks,

On Hold for now, as The Fish Going in it will arrive W/C 18 July. So I have a While.

I have been Thinking about the Lid. And Have Come up with this.

Marbles Siliconed To the Underside of a Glass Placemat or CD Cover and then the Lid will Sit on the rim and Give enough gap for Air to Circulate.

Lighting will still be a Desk Lamp.

I have Ordered some Floating Plants and they will sit in the Hex till I am Ready.

In the Tank I will Use Java Moss - Which a Local LPS (to Work) thinks is a Weed Growing Rampant in all their Tanks. So Loads Of it will Be Coming My Way.

The Copper Pea Gravel Looks Awesome Under Lighting. And I am Still Choosing the Right Rock or Bogwood for the Tank.

This is the Fish Going In It. A Rare Brown Copper Rosetail Fighter.

Sweet... That Betta looks awesome. No plans on just setting up that tank and letting it establish before putting him in?
