    Hmmmm That gives me ideas, I think I need to do a pico myself, maybe not 1/2 litre, but a gallon or so would be cool, with maybe some bee shrimp and a few galaxy rasboras. I have an old empy empty Elclipse 3 laying around, thanks for the very cool inspiration. Looks great BTW.

    Thanks :) I love the galaxy rasboras although i am partial to the rasbora hets! either way it should make for an interesting tank and id love to see the outcome! The one thing i will say is that i found it much more difficult to scape such a small area while still giving the feeling of depth and proportion. I have an even smaller tank that i am working on that is 4"x4"x4" that i plan to use Pellia and Fissidens fontanus to create the feel of stem plants. Ill keep you posted on that hahah!
