    I think that it is very charming. I might suggest that for easier maintenance simply stick the whole bottle in an established 'parent' tank and tend to it when you do H2O changes on that tank. Its will get some CO2 and some water exchange (better then none) and who know who might claim it for "home"...I have seen this technique done on other nanos that are soooo small. It even gets some ferts with the usual dosing of the parent tank. Best wishes and PLEASE do another one!! TRy a hollow light bulb, scotch tumbler, wine glass, or brandy snifter! You got talent!!---R

    thanks very much randy. i know i could do that, but this was just a fun setup. i don t want to keep it for a longer time at all. round glases like wine or scotch glases are not good to take pictures of it. maybe i ll have another boring day soon.... who knows ;)

    'pico'? please define the term 'pico' tank? why not just use the word nano? (out of curiousity)... Now Im hunting for amurillous bullb glass containers. I got bit and this "pico" bug has me seeing teeny tiny spots...with plants and fish in them. I can't wait to see your next "boring evening" project. You have some real talent!---R

    I am calling the style micro. :) Nano is anything around 8L or more, pico just below 1L, and the small ones micro. :)
