That's cool! Does it have any inhabits?
Does it ever spill out of the water nozzle?

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?

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

Its basically smaller than a nano.

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?

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

I vote for back and planting around it.

At the back for sure as it won't work well in the middle. If you center it you won't be able to aquascape well around the sides of it in my opinion as it will be too close to the walls of the jar on each side.

Piece of spider wood may work. I put the filter in the back.

I think definitely add some spiderwood it will look great!

Picked up one of these jars today when I seen it again in the shop. Going to do a marine reef jar with it. Thanks for the inspiration psalm18.2

Will be following this thread for sure.

Doesn't look bad at all!

Once you add some spiderwood, I'm sure it'll look fantastic.

I really, really like this. For my nanos, I stopped hanging thermometers in there, as they took up so much room on the glass and stood out. Instead, I keep a kitchen thermometer near the tank and get a quick reading when I needed it (it's almost as quick as glancing at an "installed" thermometer). They're also more accurate, as a bonus. Your tank is beautiful, regardless, just passing on the tip.

I took the thermometer out. I have a digital one now. Thanks!
