My new nano....

I found this 4x4x5 inch acrylic cube with a lid at a craft store for $1.29, so I had to have one. it works out to about .35 of a gallon. I put in 2 rocks, a little Flourite, and some glosso. I am using a desk lamp for lighting. Let me know what you think!!



Thanks for lookin
Mike

Very cool. It should look nice when the glosso grows in. I would add 1 more rock. Great idea BTW. I have seen those at craft stores and they would make a great little tank. I think I will have to pick one up for myself. You planning on any livestock or more plants? I think it would look cool with just glosso and a few cherries. Keep us updated.

Cool. =P I was curious if you picked up a little screw-in compact or something for it. I just noticed you left the lid on and are resting the lamp on top. Was this just for lighting for the picture? If not, be careful. If you took the lid off, evaporation would be annoying, but with it on it could overheat really quickly and also warp the acrylic.
