I saw this a long time before, but left it on the back on my mind.

I think it's a good idea if you're patient and good at dealing with tiny objects.
The plant selection would be more limited, but it could work really well.

Agreed and if you don't mind doing water changes every 2-3 days or replacing at least some portion of the water. I would probably run some airline tubing connected to a air pump and at least give it some aeration, using a gang valve to control the flow.

I think the tubing would take up too much space on the neck part of the bulb. I think only moving water animal that could live for long-term in there would be small snails or something.

Haha, you can tell people you have 50 aquariums in your house w/ 50 nanos.
