Just finished my first DIY glass tank. Tank is 3 inches long, 1 inch in width, and 1 inch tall. Total volume is approximately .012987 gallons. Anyone have any thoughts on what it should house?....

I'd try small, compact mosses. mini pellia, fissidens fontanus/zippelanus/nobilus, mini taiwan moss. Maybe a stem or two of HC, kept neatly trimmed.

I saw something on Oliver Knott's website about using soda water for water changes, seemed a novel way of introducing co2 into tiny tanks. Link. Also look here for some more examples of really small tanks.

I look forward to seeing pics of what you decide to do, good luck!

Oooh what about an ariapima gigas?

Plant wise small mosses or even dwarf riccia possibly.

Wow, very tiny. I could not imagine anything live lasting to long in there without jumping out.. Looking forward to see this develop though.. I now there are a few talented folks who work solely on ultra mini projects like this over on ASW forum..

Orlando, you surely have an appropriate CO2 system for this tank? About 1 bubble per week ought to do it.
