Thank you! It's very small. I think about 3 ounces, and no I don't breed snails in these, I breed snails in 20 ounce jars and 5 gallon tanks, right now they are all in 5 gallon tanks. This aquarium is just a tiny little decoration setup

Lol Mo!!! My technique: stuff it in, leave a little space for fish to swim.

Love your tanks -- omg, so many plants! and I am so wanting to do a nice jar for my desk..

Mattoboy --- such big pics >< I'll look at em tomorrow when they finish loading. ;)

Ah no.. I see em now. What kind of wood is that? Beautiful tank! Nice & clean look. I haven't tried vals or swords yet, looking forward to it.
