    Loving it!

    What's your lighting situation? Mostly natural light, or are you using something like a desk lamp?

    I kept a little tank like this, but kept it dirted. Had a lot of fun with it!

    Just got my vals in the mail. Threw them in tank for now. Will attempt some sort of scape this weekend.

    Current inverts are RCS and ramshorn snails.

    Lighting is a non sunny facing window daily. No other light used.

    Removed heater today as it's hot in this tank.

    I have used the spout but after this weekend I'm adding substrate and it may cover it.

    Looks great! Little tanks like this can be a lot of fun, especially if you need something small for a desk.

    I love pico tanks like these :)

    Often seen these jar things in shops with the draining nozzle and thought they would make great pico tanks.

    No fish planned?

    What's a pico?
  16. ParrotCichlidWell Known MemberMember

    Pico refers to any aquarium with a volume below 3g.

    Its basically smaller than a nano.

    Nice idea and very budget friendly :)

    Um are those jungle vals? This is just temporary right, you're not planting those in a 1-2g??? Cause if you do plant them in this, um, wow what do you plan your trimming schedule to be?
  19. psalm18.2Fishlore LegendMember

    As often as needed. Lol.

    Debating putting the filter in the middle or back and plant around it.
