.5 npt?

I have a .5 gallon from when I first got my betta, and since he has been upgrade, I was wondering if I could put a tiny snail in it if I turned it into a teeny little NPT? Probably would just get a bag of moneywort from Petco, some soil and some sand to cap.

I didn't know that was possible in that small of a tank o.o Would that setup work for a few cherry shrimp?

I LOVE THESE SO MUCH! Not sure about the shrimp, because the water quality would be seriously hard to maintain in a micro tank like that, but don't me on that!

Check out these entries from the 2013 AGA aquascaping contest (sure these are professionals but still! *drool)

0.25gal

0.25gal

half-gallon

...and so on!

Once you start small jars like this, every single container in your house becomes a potential new holder of a plants.
