i don't have pics, but my .5 gallon and my tiny .25 gallons are for water changes. i can change 3 bettas water at once with them. 8V i might have a picture of Todderp in one somewhere....

i accidentally ruined my 3 gallon, so i gave it to my niece. she puts her fake lizards in it, and stole some of my plants to give them a cool 'home'. xD

and, last, my .9 gallon and my tiny betta bowl are spare rock holders. :V filled to the top with extra rocks.

We use our under 1g tanks to put the fishes in during tank cleaning time :)

My 1 gallon tank and .5 are going to be hospital tanks for once I start rescuing betta's. I might get few more 1 gallon critter keepers for just that reason. That way I can rescue more than one or two fish at a time depending on how much time I have to actually care for sick fish and what degree of illness they each have. I'm thinking I want a total of 10 1 gallon tanks.

Currently one of my 1 gallons is the hospital tank for my frog. He's liking his frog spa. xD Get's all his soothing warm water and lots and lots of food and daily water changes. I need to get some IAL soon though for once I start rescuing after we move.

the half gallon tank is being used for nothing yet, but my 6 yr old son is trying to convince me to put snails in it along with a snail or two in the big tank. But if I get snails, I'll need a hospital tank in case Fishy gets sick, and right now all I have are the .5 gallon tank and the 5 gallon tank.

Actually that algae cultivation idea might come in handy. Get a small tank fill it with rocks and let near the window. When everything turns green throw in the rocks in the oto tank... Hm....

Yes!!! lol. They would love that. Now, I might do that too as a siames algae eater cleaned my 20 gallon tank (which was caked with algae at that piont) overnight...what a fat little thing he was afterwards :/
