Smile 1.25 gallons x2 half sphere tanks!

Ok so i hope the name isnt to confusing. this will be my build as to how my plants and tank progresses.


So this is what i used to make it all.

and here it is!

So this tank is completly free, i used gravel from an existing tank, plants also from the same tank and i had these vases hanging around, the light is just my old computer lamp.

The plants i have and want:

Have:
dwarf onion plant (tall one)
pennywort
and 2 mystery plants (forgot the names)

Want:
Riccia
Mosses
stargrass


So my fish list is very small but here it is:

Right tank:
Betta
oto x2
bamboo shrimp

left tank:
neon tetras x4
RCS or other shrimp
oto x2
MAYBE cories x3 (probably to much


I know your thinking "this guys crazy" but i believe i can make this work, i will be buying an under tank heater within this week and ordering plants next week and then adding the fish then shrimp then last the otos.

Once the betta gets bigger i will most likey upgrade to a 3 gallon but the same sphere concept if i can find it.

I will be buying a different bulb tommorrow probably.

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

that seems like over kill big time with such small tanks. Im not sure you will produce enough algae for the oto's to live, ive heard a lot wont eat algae wafers. I think 4 neons would be to many for such a small tank

5 gallon
Beta
3 MTS(sure to be mean more soon)

55 gallon
Bloat who is a Fahaka puffer
Plants

i understand, but the otos will mow down my algea sheets, i already have 3 and plan to move them to this tank. i do a cup water change every day so i dont really think the neons will die or be stressed. i will vacum with a small vac 1 a week for a .5 gall water change. it will also be quite full of plants.
