Setting up a new NPT

Finally I set up the new NPT
Took me 1.5 hours, which wasnt bad at all!
meet my new 2g NPT
It isssss supposed to be 3gallons... but with all that substrate... I've decided it's now a 2 gallon. lol!

This NPT is intended for my shrimpies and the H formosas. No bettas D: cos they'll eat everything!



I'm not sure if I need more plants in here, Some expert please point me in the right direction....

I was thinking it was gonna be some type of sterlite container lol. I guess critter keepers could actually work really good for a low tech tank. I want to get a 7.5 gallon Mr. Aqua tank, that's rimless, but there is so much I want lol.

Between this and your jar, you've really gotten me thinking I need to do a small scale NPT or two!

XD my Jar isn't an NPT, but I'm pretty sure its a sustainable system, since I've never done anywater changes in it >.> it was way too much trouble, because of the Jar height. Then I noticed that whatever I threw in there would grow like mad. Then in went shrimps who are happy. then fish >.>

Yeah I've added the sand and soil to my jar and it took up about 1/6 of it XD I will drop something I have a lot of in there tomorrow and see what happens. Are you using just natural light for your little tanks?

Nice :D

Whats the tube for?

I wonder if I could do a NPT with a kritter keeper and keep it by a window for light. I don't get alot of natural light in here though. And I don't trust demon kitty...
