Its name is 'pico tank'. Smaller than a Nano by a long way. There is someone else on here that has done a few of these. Can't remember who but there is a pic on the FoF thread somewhere.

Are you using tap water?

If not, would using another tank water or r.o. or distilled,not help with reduction of bubbles?

I thought you were supposed to use some tank water, as it will contain nutrients for the plants - much easier than dosing them yourself!
