I planted the ultimate, low-tech nano "tank" today - a la Diana Walstad.

I used this vase from Target. I'm using a cheapo clamp on lamp and a 13 watt CFL bulb for light.

Not sure if I will add any critters to this. It's only about 2 1/4 gallons. A few shrimp might work, but I think I might just want to keep it plants, and let it run wild.

Wish I could have gotten a sweet little cryptocoryne. I am so tired of having to order those.

I'll post photos when the soil settles.

Really, anyone interested in gardening can do water gardening on an insanely small scale this way.
I clean forgot to post what I think is a really neat photo of Ivan the Terrible, flaring at his reflection in the side of his tank.

Dual reflection here.

The journey is good.

And you can teach an old dog new tricks.

Namaste.
