Which vodka bottle? :P We've had some interesting tanks here. I think most recently (or that I've read recently) someone started a peanut bar jar nano!

I was looking for an empty Grey Goose but I couldn't find one, I was thinking about doing just Smirnoff

I've tried in a Svedka bottle because i liked the shape but it becomes a real pain to try and navigate the tiny opening.

To make it easier to navigate the opening you could try removing the top of the bottle. Wrap some acetone-soaked thread around the area just as the bottle starts to widen. Light it on fire then after it burns for a while dip it in ice water and it should pop right off. Make sure you sand down the edges though so no one gets cut.

Get a half gallon, they have like an inch wide mouth and its a good size for a tank. three olives is nice but most of the bottles are sanded. Skyy and absolute have nice half gallons that would work well too. cutting the top off would be cool, you could save the neck and get a light that fits inside to make it way cooler.

I used one of the 1/2 gallon plastic Smirnoff bottles for my diy CO2. Works great and looks much better than soda bottle.

I figured if I could get some low light plants in would be the hardest part. I could remove and trim with my long handle scissors/ Tweezers. I was just gonna do some crypts and a couple vals to fill up. Along with some snails.

I keeping the narrow neck will add to the impossible bottle type effect. Plant some dwarf lilies and let it over grow a bit.
