"Look at my new tinnnyy nano!" ... "what nano..?"

Hey guys, seems how the craze is currently ridiculously small but cute tanks at the moment, most obviously due to some of the ones on this forum and current tanks of the month over at aquahobby.com - in the festive spirit i set up one of my own out of an old whiskey glass. Its approx. 0.0792516154 US gallons or the equivalent to 300 mili litres

Here are a few shots, built with rough gravel, fine slate gravel, java moss, baby tears clippings and some hairgrass. Not quite cleared yet but clarity is satisfactory.



There she is, what a beaut.

Long range shot...



WARNING - the following shot may be dangerous to the eyes and it is heavily advised you sit a good 15 feet back from the computer to get maximum quality.

my attempt at a close up with my balls camera :

parents and small children please leave the room.



Anyhow, just pay attention to the first two photos. Give it time to clear and time to grow and i think it'll look awesome.

Any ideas for it? and also is it possible to but anything living in there outside of water fleas?

Thanks for the time.

I would grow a little (emersed) hairgrass. Daphnia would be fun to watch. If you want something different, go out to an ephemeral pond this spring with a fine-mesh net. You'll get all kinds of little critters.
