Tiny tanks...

I have one of those candy colored 1/2 gallon cubes in my treatment room. It has basalt rock for the hardscaping and just e. tenellus and a marimo ball for the plants, plus a betta and a couple of MTS for clean-up.

It's really a pretty little thing (I got the green one since my treatment room is green, and it really doesn't look garish at all,) and my clients are mesmerized by it... I should have become a hypnotist instead of a massage therapist!

Anyone else maintaining one of these little tanks?

I have one I've been thinking of planting. I can't figure out what to put in it. I had a betta for a while, but couldn't keep the ammonia down. How's yours?

I've got the 2.5 gallon version of that guy, roughly same shape as an AGA 2.5 gallon. I'm quarantining some dwarf crayfish right now, so there isn't much going on. I'll post something once I get going. -Mine's green, too.

Ammonia is good, had a little bit of trouble initially, but there are plants and flourite. I change about a cup of the water 2x week. I'll see if I can get a pic later.
