ROFL

They are Guppies, RH snails and the lone Cory I couldn't capture - easily go into the 72G!

Presently the top of the tank is mostly covered with Dwarf Water Lettuce and plenty of Duckweed mixed in.

The Betta passed away sometime back, can't recall if I mentioned that. Only if I finally make a decision to keep the vase will I add a new Betta. Maybe one imported from Thailand. Always wondered about selecting a fish from pics and then having it imported just for me!

Right now there are lots of tannins in the tank and I plan to give it a couple pwc to help get the yellowed color water more clear. Maybe get a few more pics in a week or so.

Seems 6 to 7 gallons. Lots of stones and substrate there too. Seemed it was said to be 7G from one of the creators of the one I won.

Lol, just watch Costco Christmas/ holiday displayed or online to know when it is available for the wine glasses. It's really a neat set up.

I had saved the Seriyu stone and couldn't use them for the low pH shrimp tank due to leaching. And not settimg up any mpte tanls lol.

Also okho dragon stone looks pretty great too. there are better ones with sunset colors of your lfs gets them in. Can't remember atm what you already have. Both are nice.

If you get one to set up, you have to link the build thread.

Start cycling a sponge filter now so you'll be ready!!! Merry Christmas to her!

Oh forgot to mention I have a maybe half gallon margarita glass slated for a wabi-kusa ball, and presently a appx. 2 gallon brandy snifter with misc plants as well. Only because they are great - fun shapes.

I want to try that sometime. Seems like a good way to use some trimmings.

Got the jumbo Margarita glass from a flea market for around $5. Great deal!!!

Hoping to get to that other project in a couple months, enough going on for now but I have been wanting to have a little table with some "house" plants

When the more severe winter weather makes me bring in all the other plants from outside back into the house and when the Colorado Aquarium Society has their fall auction, maybe.

It really is a ideal way to use trimmings. Too bad I will probably have WAY more than I can use in one little ball, (maybe 2) hahahaha.
