Found my 1 gallon!!!! (picture heavy)

So I was looking for my deep blue 1 gallon. and decided to go for a LFS run today and see what I can find.
Boy was I glad I went! turns out theres a street market and theres stuff being sold dirt cheap. And me having a tank in mind walked all the way down to the end and back again... and found.....

TADA!

a $3 7x7 glass cube/ vase.

OMG it could not have been more perfect!

I also grabbed 3 small larva rocks from my LFS for $1.50...

now time to set up this beauty....

Empty Vase with lotssss of potential!

Filling with substrate...

A bit of rocks and moss...

Anubias, microsword... more susswassertang to block off access to the nooks and crannies.

Fill!!!

Fill more!

almost there!

Add heater and fish and jump proofing!

ofcourse I ommited the more painstaking photos. such as
rinsing out the ecocomplete 6or 7 times to get rid of all the dust....
washing the glass with water then hydrogen peroxide. LOL
Fishing the plants out from my other tanks...
finding a spot for the heater...
acclimating the fish...

Needless to say...i'm proud of the results.

I have that on my dining table. When my father died someone sent us flowers in it. I always thought it would make a cute haspital tank but then I got the 2 gallon round one. This looks pretty!

that's really awesome, especially considering you put so much work into a temporary tank. that's the kind of devotion to style and detail i would love to emulate.
