Do you think this is small enough to be nano?

I set up this little bowl a few weeks ago. I took it home from work so it wouldn't be sold to someone as a betta bowl.

The plant is one of those so-called 'dwarf swords' which is a tissue cultured green horemani, E. uryguayensis - one of the biggest swords around. The substrate is fine gravel with a root tab ground up in the bottom, quarter tabs will be added over time.

The water volume is about half a litre, this is replaced weekly with water from one of my other tanks after it has had a change and ferts added. The bowl sits on the back of the bridge of my 300l 4' tank where it benefits from a 150w metal halide. I wonder how many Watts per gallon that would be?

The occupants are a pair of glass shrimp, Paratya australiensis and a couple of black worms. It is tempting to add a juvenile Dwarf Flat-head Gudgeon, but it the daily temp fluctuation would not be the best for it. The shrimp are more manageable for a something this size, and I won't be too upset if they jump out and end up as butterfly fish food

snowy, that's cool

As for the questions about mine, I took it down today and the massive amount of rotala rotundifolia was amazing. I think the plants weren't stunted by the low height of the tank.

thank you soo much for the info !! great article, but I am still concerned the search I did on the " flat worm " says they have horn type things at thier head, I can not see this in mine .. I am very freaked out and ready to destroy all plants in that tank , I am leaving it up now for trying to find a cure" as I have found a few of these things in my 5 square minami shrimp tank, I have searched all other tanks, cant seem to see' anymore, but I am no longer moving ANY plants, shrimp, or fish . I HAVE to kill these things, they make me sick . I understand constant WC and graveo cleans will help, I am doing 20% WC now every other day , and gravek vacums every week . I really would love to try the dewormer stuff, I think I will buy some today , since that tank (5 gallon rcs (all dead) has no life in it except some awesome plants that are growing great !! I even seen' one of these things (blobs) I belive its some sort of leach drag a red ramshorn snail to the middle substrate when I came back with a net to catch them, they were both gone... here is the part which makes me belive it is NOT a flatworm

"Planaria are often confused with leeches, though they can be told apart easily be visual observation. Planaria have horn like protrusions from the sides of their head and eye spots. The mouth of the planaria is the only opening to its digestive system and is located under the middle of its body."


my blobs seem to have no eyes, no mouth (that I can see) I have noticed as the get big, the will have some dark marking on thier inside top. I think these are babies, but I am not sure yet , I love my fish , and I like shrimp' But I HATE bugs, worms and icky stuff, I am a girl !!! CAN ANYONE HELP ME RID MYSELF OD THESE CREATURES ??? PLEASE ....................................
here are a few more pics, hard to see, there in a clean ash tray, and this one is moving , it drags its body then goes back into a ball eeww they really make me want to throw up . ok see if you can even see this thing , wish I had a very expensive cam so I couls get you all a closer pic.. thanxs for any and all help to rid myself and my tanks of this pest !!! and i thought I hated a pond snail !! LOL I would take 1000's of pond snails over these things any day !!



you can see' a flat worm on the right hand side this bigger blob is NOT a flat worm, I dont think so ........


here it is reaching' its like it is blind and it reaches its skinny part of its body finds somthing to grab then slides the fat part of his body around... then gets into ball (if I am hovering , looking)



HELP ANYONE ???
I will go get the meds from the article tonight, I can dise the tank with no life in it , that way I dont have to worry about shrimp or fish, and see if there is any effect. its really bad in that tank, I cant pull one plant out without finding one. and I have been doing WC everyother day !! I dont know where these came from ..
