Re: A mini tank contest!

Lol, I can't remember....My lil bottle got awfully hairy, so I took it down after the contest, added a baby crypt and had that...then I took that down and made the world's smallest fishbowl with a fish (fake, of course)

Adopt one today!
Lead me not to temptation...I can find my own way there, thank you

Re: A mini tank contest!

There was a poll, If i recall correctly. For the life of me I cant remember who won lol.


Spoke with Susan and we decided to revive the contest! So any interested in entering, please read the original rules and we will decide a date :D

Re: A mini tank contest!

Hm, I'm not sure if I would be able to do it but just in case, it needs to be less than 5L, no fish or snails or anything like that right?

Less than 2 liters (half gallon)

This contest will consist of making a mini tank.
Must be 2 liters or under
Can use bottles, glasses, vases, whatever.
Must show pic of container before filling, showing refernce to size
Must show pic after its done
No critters allowed in the tank.

Will run this for 2 months from today to give time to find or make container.

Adopt one today!

Yep Kehy got it!

Basically its like a mini scape. Show us your talent, can scape with anything you want as long as its not live animals. Plants are fine though. Just use your imagination!

Re: A mini tank contest!

keychain paludarium.











it has anubias nana petite, m. umbrosum, tiny black beard algae balls, and a bit of rotala for plants, accented by an un-cut star ruby. -

You show me a man who can reliably grow algae and I will show you a man who can reliably grow fish.

I don't believe that anubias is an actual plant. You will need to submit a sample to me for further testing.
