A mini tank contest!

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.

SUCCESS IS MEASURED BY YEARS, NOT MONTHS!!!
220 Tank build + 62 other tanks.

Re: A mini tank contest!

Guys use something else as a reference please,like a pencil or something more common.Not everyone can tell the size of tanks.Some look bigger or smaller than they really are.

Re: A mini tank contest!

ok here's mine, i think. I'm not sold on it yet but while rummaging I came up with two things. One actually has about the same, if not smaller volume as Kays and I'm just not sure if I'm up to that challenge yet, so we'll see. But for now, give me your thoughts on this one





It's an old sugar bowl i never use

70 gallon- Betta Enisae pair, betta Ocellata pair, female Betta Pugnax

29 Gallon- Betta Pallifina and Betta Patoti

20 Gallon- Betta Gladiator

5 Gallon- Betta Channoides

Re: A mini tank contest!

looks cute summer! But just remember, the smaller the tank, the more of a pain it is to work with...which is why I'm keeping my plan as simple as possible
