Well, I found a nice and cheap vase in a General store that liked and immediately have a vision for a nano aquarium remembering that I have some left over of hardwood moldings around there and without any knowledge about nanos I decided to go for it and give it a try, so very recently I got this setup after working the wood moldings to have its stand and hood, I haven't finished with the hood as I want to integrate a christmas light on top on it that by now I just placed it there. I did some try outs with one battery led light (3 leds) that I have but didn't like it. Here are some pictures. May be you can give ideas about lighting for it. I place it next to a flute glassware so there is a size reference and of course drink enjoyment during the photo session
, it is about 0.2 Gals.
You can notice there is a tubing with a needle,this is a CO2 diffusor for CO2, I placed a mini DIY CO2 underneath its base that is generating CO2. (Not very efficient, but there are some bubbles maybe not needed but I added for fun
The hood is just an open frame and I could've place just a stand alone lamp over it, however I wanted to have a stand alone mini aquarium
so I got this christmas light instead taking avantage of my wife being distracted.
I had a cherry shrimp and a couple of neon tetras but I took them off here because the shrimp died
, I wont try any livestock anymore until I see that I can make the plants survive in this little thing. Any suggestion and advice very welcome.
