    Finally finished my prototype 7.5 gal fish-tank with handmade upside-down topper dome, LED air-ration and Fluval 105 (25 us gal) pump filter.

    What kind of fish should I go with to complete the beauty of this tank.

    Awesome tank!

    How about a school of neon tetras?

    a school of neons in a 7 gallon? Isn't that too small? especially a 7 gallon that's mostly tall space?

    I don't think the shrimp will be able to utilize the top portion of the tank. So far the dwarf puffer is the best idea I've heard and is what I would suggest.

    I don't see the height being a problem for a betta, but rather not having access to the "surface."

    Not being able to get to the surface is a real problem for Bettas. They have to be able to get to the surface for a breath of air every so often.

    It would be cool with Shrimp in it. With enough plants and other stuff to climb on the would occupy the whole tank.

    thank you everyone I'm gonna see what is available around here im in round rock Tx and its hard to see from the photos but the bubble sits on 4 ledges the side are open about 2" on each wall with full access to the surface i know my next project ill do bigger i was not sure how much this would hold but had the ideal stuck in my head. I think this will be my new hobby thow trying to design new style's of tanks hehe.

    A danger that your current design faces is the lack of surface area, which is where the CO2 - O2 exchange takes place.

    Since there is access to the surface, I think a betta would work well.

    Your tank design is very intriguing. Is it possible to see a picture that shows the ledges and openings?

    Jaysee is right,what about air exchange.Air will rise to the top and in time will create a poisonous atmosphere.It does look cool though,keep us updated.

    atmosink a couple of bamboo shrimps would look real nice with the twisted bamboo thats in there. the tank is very creative i'd say.

    Cool looking tank! Could you post a pic with something in it to give perspective, your hand or something?

    I don't have any experience with smaller tanks, so I can't offer any stocking advice.
