Cool Micro tank success!

I was totally bored one day and was cleaning out my closet when i found a 1 liter, square , platic container i used back when i was 5 to keep a lizard i found outside in! After thoroughly rinsing it out with water, i put some gravel in and 2 pond snails i found my show tank. I later put in a single 1/3 inch of Java moss and an equal sized piece of riccia fluitians. I then found an odd green "hair ball." *side note: anyone know what this hair ball is? i see a tiny ball of this stuff every month. at appears to grow slowly* anyway... in this one liter snail tank, that one tiny hair ball is now taking up up the tank! but i like the hairyness affect of it. The pond snail population has also exploded too. I also found these tiny white things in there too! To me, they look like baby brine shrimp :D but i highly doubt they are of course.

Anyway, heres a pic

This would make an excellent tank for fry. There will be a lot of microscopic plankton in there.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
