I think there are two ways to go about it. the 1 gallon actually started off being temporary =D It was such a fun proccess. and even now I'm constantly pulling things out and putting things in (just took out a big wad of fissidens and tied that to some manzanita) ^___^


found some pics of it's progress... I think I started it off in September, took a loooong time to get this stage.

Funny, I was thinking about this last week, see pic, but realized that it was too small yesterday when I went looking for it.

Been there, done that ;) I think my black worm container was only about half a litre, the dimensions were 3.5x3.5x6. lol! (googled it, Total Volume = 0.15 Gallons US) =D

I like the dimensions of that vase so much more, the thin shape gives it quite a bit of scaping potential!

I know, I was thinking little branches and tiny plants... moss, dirt. My daughter wants to go to Walmart and look for other neat containers to setup... maybe I can get her to do the work and I'll act as a consultant.

I have to agree with aokashi! Little tanks are fun! Big tanks are neat because of the variety of fish, but little tanks are fun because you have so little space to make things work. It's a challenge!

And I think I might have that same gallon tank! I bought it intending to make an all-plant tank, but that kinda failed. I didn't bother with water changes and my room has a lot of evaporation. So I'm going to make it into a terrestrial moss terrarium! I <3 moss

It will definitely be a great project :D Those 1 gallon glass hars with lids are also really great! I used to put one on a lazy susan so I can rotate the entire tank*ahem* i mean jar~ ^_^

They are fun! I just hoisted my 6.6gallon emmersed plant setup on my window sill.~ nothing beats some good old fashion natural light! gonna pop all my emmersed jars up there soon as the weather gets even warmer. I might even do an aquatic plant project outside when the weather gets a little more predictable!
Gonna turn off that big ol 42w cfl until next winter ^_^

Maybe there should be a Jar club or something on TFK? lol XD
