Re: A mini tank contest!

I forgot to take a "before" shot, so I'm using the pic' of the bowl Kehy has, since mine is the exact same bowl.

Before:




I used red gravel, a few small river stones and a piece of Lava Rock. The plants are: 3 baby Java Ferns (1 anchored to Lava Rock and 2 lightly planted), 2 Anubias Nana Petite (both anchored to Lava Rock), 3-4 Parva Crypts (1-2 Lutea Crypts - melted but hopefully will come back), Grape Wood with Christmas Moss tied to it, Elodea, floating Hornwort and Duckweed. I use a small airstone for airmovement so algae doesn't become a problem. The tank sits on a speaker about 6ft from a sliding glass door, and gets ambient daylight with 1-2 hours of direct sunlight. For fertilizers I have a small piece of root tab in the gravel, and during water changes, I put in some water from my larger tanks that has been dosed with dry ferts.

Over all view from the side:


Here it is from the top looking down:


The Java and Nana Petite on the rock:


Parva Crypts:


Planted Parva's, Nana Petite and Baby Java's:


Baby Java's:


Grape Wood with Christmas Moss:


Last side view (kinda' tilted lol):


So, that's my entry. Sorry there are so many pictures.... my camera isn't fantastic, and no matter where I went in the house, I couldn't get lighting that would let me take 1-2 decent pictures.

It's not a shot glass! lol it's a candle holder. It's about 2 inches high and an inch across.... so yea not very big. And the bottom is thick so theres some volume loss there

lol shot glass, candle holder...they both work. XD
Mine's about 1.5" across, 4" tall with the stopper, but I only have 2.25" of water. Also, the moss in my bottle is growing better than the stuff in my tank...lol
