    Lol exactly what I was thinking :lol: It even says that you can successfully keep Damselfish and Firefish.

    What do you use for lighting? I guess you could use a desk lamp with a PAR30 or PAR38.

    I'm not sure...It doesn't mention lighting, unless that little black cylinder at the top is a light.

    i kinda feel like a par38 bulb, or any light for that matter would mostly just reflect off the dome of the tank.

    Besides the fact that the picture is Photoshopped with species and quantity that could never live in a tank of it's nature, IF it works well, It could make quite an awesome desk ornament. Kinda like a living snow Globe lol (Just don't shake it)

    That's a good point. I didn't think of that.
