Anyone have...

a super small nano? I'm going to start a nano, but it's like 0.4 gallons of water! Can anyone give me tips on how to start the nano?

Thanks...

aquaphish just started a thread about his "cup tank", just a nice coffee-looking cup that must be about or less than 0.4 gallons.

I've got a pair of 16-20 oz nanos that I started about a week ago. I just set them up out of boredom, no idea what to do with them yet. Right now, each has a small peice of driftwood with some java moss and @ 1" of Flourite Red. No fauna yet. I was thinking maybe a cherry shrimp, a young Endler's, or a Young Betta.

I also have several 32-50 oz planted betta bowls. Again, nothing fancy, just what I had laying around. Clippings of Sunset Hygro, Java Moss, and Rotala Indica from my big tank (1 gallon) and some Flourite Red. The bettas (1 Male and 4 Females) each enjoy their own planted home far more than their cold empty bowls.

As for lighting, I use mostly overflow from the other tanks by placing them all in close vicinity. No fast growth here, but in a nano you might not want that. In the future I plan to have a better lighting system like hanging a 36" fixture overhead. I want to start fertilizing, just haven't yet worked out the calculations. I do dose Excel at about a drop a day for the larger 50+ oz tanks.

Not sure if I answered your question, but maybe gave you some idea what I've done.

A friendly note of caution: your cherry shrimp will become lunch for your betta....

Ditto that. My betta killed 2 of his ghost shrimp in the past while living in a 1 gallon tank. Be careful or else the betta will have an expensive snack
