7" Cube Vase

Just finished scaping this evening. Really want to keep it low maintenance this time. Just some Java Moss here and there and Riccia for groundcover. It's being cycled with some ghost shrimp in it for now. Maybe move the betta to this one as suggested by others.




4" cube,

No betta, get some red cherry shrimp eventually.

That riccia is gonna look fantastic when it grows in.

Be careful with putting a betta in there. The current from the filter will be too strong for it in such a small tank and with a open top it will most likely try to jump. (I have the same tank and found my betta shriveled up on the ground)

Tank's looking good though! Keep posting pics.

She's right. That's not nearly enough space for a Betta. We want our fish to not merely survive, but to thrive.
Some cherries though would look great.

A betta needs at least 2.5g or it is cruel.

Tank's has been taken down. I wanted a low maintenance tank but I ended up spending too much time netting out the loose riccia.

Did you toss the riccia? Love the tank, regardless.

Yup, I tossed the Riccia.

Light is from an Azoo 1g kit.

Awesome looking! I agree with removing the Riccia it may look nice but it actually requires more upkeep.

Is that the only light that the tank is receiving? I know that fixture is only 7 watts, and I didn't think it would be enough to grow plants. The reason I'm asking is that I'm setting up something similar to your cube, and I'm weighing my lighting options.

Great looking pico by the way!
