When it comes to heaters and glass things I tend to order from within the UK just in case something goes wrong. I'm sure there's a similar if not identical brand over here somewhere... must start digging!

I measured the space that'd be between my two tanks and I don't think it's large enough, but I'll still take a look at what containers are available!

Well, since people seem pretty enthusiastic on this topic, here's some inspiration via Rony Suzuki and Fabia Yoshida, who have made some truly stunning miniature aquariums.. like this one:



Here's a link to a site where you can see a few more:

Truly inspiring, and very do-able. I just love that cracker-box paludarium! I can't go to a homewares store now without looking for potential tanks, ha.

I am having the same problem. Found my other bowls and started to think about what I can use.

Also, I am still looking around for a light better then this:

I don't bother to heat the microtank I currently have - but I do have a small circular undergravel heater that would take the chill off in winter. It was sold as a betta heater, lol- be lucky to stop a shrimp shivering in this weather, I think I'll never use it for bettas. But for a nice bowl of shrimp..

It looks all tranquil and all that, but it is a rock and val. Looks nice with how the glass and stand, but that is so easy lol.

I made my mind, I am going to get a light and go Emersed with hairgrass and ludwigia.

I think I have the very same one for my 3 gallon Kritter Keeper. I bought it for $12 I think......says it heats 2-5 gallons, so my 3 gallon was perfect.
It does a really nice job heating in the winter, though. And if my fish and shrimp get chilly, they just move closer to the heater.
It's a circular rubber mat with the cord sticking out of the top/side and it came with a suction cup so you could stick it to something (i.e. the tank wall in case your gravel isn't heavy enough as in my case).
I love it though!
