1.5g/3gpicotope+2gspec

Haven't had a planted tank in a year now. Starting Jan I would like to do a nano planted tank. I'll probably set-up my 3g pictope again but want to do something really really small and cool. Have any ideas?

Shrimp tank? I only say that because I just got my Evolve 4 loaded with approximately 20 Red Cherry Shrimp. It's dirted and I am loving it.

29 Gallon
Aqueon Evolve 4

I want something different that you would never expect it was that small. Maybe 1g or less.

Depends on how small you want to go and what you want to keep it in.
My picos have ranged from a 1"x1"x2.5" with mini ramshorns, to a breeding pair of cherry shrimp in the bowl of a small wineglass, to planted vases bowls ranging from .5 to 3g holding various shrimp, snails, nano-fish and a couple of times brackish water setups for crabs.

Sample of no tech picos

I'm going to do a 1.5g tank. What should I stock in it? It's low tech.

Quick pic of what the tank looks like. It won't be setup until I move in a few weeks.

Here's my version of the selfsame tank. You're probably gonna want to upgrade the lamp to get superlative plant growth. Other than that, its a great little tank.

Cool, let's see it!

People are too often merely stating an assumed truth from flawed observation.

Just set it up today. Water was clearing up pretty fast. Put a nice piece of drift wood in the middle planted some dwarf hair grass and dropped in a fluval moss ball. I'll fill the water up to the top when I'm doing moving stuff around.
