All you will have to do is trimmings, I think someone on here has baby tears but they grow super slow.

Check out this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8ESg...2&feature=plcp Thats how baby tears should look.

You guys make me so JEALOUS!!!!!!!
I love shrimp so much....
seeing you make these adorable little tanks makes me want to kill you all (JOKING!!!!) .....
But seriously, I have to get my act together. Saturday I'm going shopping with my sister, hopefully I'll be able to convince her to drive over to Petsmart or something and wait in the parking lot while I feverishly pick out any shrimp or plant that I see ;D
This is my idea....
Tank: 1 gallon corner/triangular tank
Substrate: Pool sand, baked in oven to kill bacteria OR black gravel mixed with black sand
Plants: Moss ball (maybe I'll take it out of the betta tank? It's the only live plant in there, so I guess I'd feel bad about doing that), java moss, Anacharis, duckweed
Decorations: Basalt rock, "primitive" looking picked from backyard stone wall
Filtration: None
Aeration: None
Water Changes: 2x a week (or what???)
Inhabitants: Rams-horn snail, OR ghost shrimp x1(or x2), OR Red Cherry Shrimp x3

So those are just my ideas....correct me if I am about to do anything wrong, please!

That sounds great PaintingPintos!

I had an epiphany this morning. Yesterday I had intended on re-dividing and rescaping one half of my divided 14gal aquarium but everything went to er... poop (for the want of a more ferocious term but keeping it family friendly) and I'm now in a situation where one betta is in his old 5gal whereas my other is in the 2.5gal quarantine tank awaiting a new 5gal of his own and the 14gal is sat in our back yard.

My 14gal was situated on a table at the end of my bed, currently on one half I have Kaze's 5gal and the other half will house Echo's once I pick it up hopefully on Saturday... that's going to leave a space BETWEEN the tanks... conveniently UNDER my plant lighting. Hmmm!!!

I'll measure up the space and see if there's enough for a 1gal mini planted tank. I'd love to put some cherry shrimp in there but our winters are rather chilly and I wouldn't be able to fit a heater in a 1gal so I may just use it to breed microfauna for my boys.

I have a feeling I'm going to come home with more than just a tank on Saturday... let's hope they have live plants -- if not then there's another local aquatics store that does! Mwahaha!

Thank you aokashi :) unfortunately though it's in the USA. I don't really have another plug socket spare for a third heater either so I may just stick to a tiny planted, shrimpless bowl.

Dwarf baby tears doesn't really need co2 or particularly high light, in my experience.. it just gets leggier without all that, rather than growing in those nice neat compact and evenly-growing lawns the scapers like so much.
