6.6G Glass only Edge Project? SW or FW

Looking for some ideas.

Traded this tank and filter for a bunch of plants. Nothing else is there just glass tank and filter. The filter has been a problem running correctly so not too sure about it yet, though I think I have another one either just like it or similar size which would fit so either way I COULD have filtration.

Now... What to do with it?



A couple of options I was thinking were Macro Algae DT for SW. I have one right now


Zoa garden

A terrarium...

A planted "bowl"

A shrimp or Betta tank with a basket in the top growing plants out of it

Some people take the top lip off the top to give it a sharp look but I would be nervous for breaking the tank or loosing stability in the glass.

If anyone has any pics of interesting ideas of the Edge tanks or other small ideas you have done or seen please feel free to post anything like you might be thinking of.

Those are interesting dimensions, you could easily do some type of Nano fish or get a few Peacock Gudgeons.
*edit* no Apistos, did see it was a 6 gallon, little too small for them.

I have lots of nano fish in my other Edge tanks,
Celestial Pearl Danios CPD aka Galaxy Rasbora
Green Neons,
Blue Neon Goby
12G Edge

have had Sundanio Axlerodi Blue Neon (waiting for lfs to get more in - had them for about 2 years till they died off) 6.6G

Chili Rasboras aka Boraras Brigittae,
Scarlet Gem Badis in 6.6G now

All my tanks are kinda Jungle looking.

Could do a similar to Iwagumi.

Well, a Zoa only tank would look really sick. Just saying.

I am STILL wanting a little bunch of the Sexy Shrimp in ANY of my tanks!

So atm, the top contenders are Zoa Garden or the Iwagumi. I am also wanting to bang my head against the wall because I am supposed to be reducing the number of tanks I have Laugh!

I think I like planting the tanks and little tank water "gardening" and scaping a little more than the fish aspect at the moment.

How about a rare(ish) endler trio?

Almost like a breeding tank.

Keep the ideas and comments coming. I am wide open here still.

Today I cleaned out the tank, there was a little heater too.

So here is one option.

I was going to try out Iwagumi with my Petrified Wood stones, but as I was looking at my rock garden I saw these two stones: the ones on the left. So I tried them not totally sold, but I really love these two rocks, maybe for something else though.


Then another thing I thought of while I was turning the tank around cleaning it was that if you turn it sideways so that the opening is open to the rear top and you could do an interesting Paludarium.
