Just started this the first week of Feb. 2017:

 

*.5 Gallon PetSmart TopFin Calm All Glass Betta Tank

*DIY Filtration area made out of Black Styrene Modeling Sheets .030" Thick

*AquaOne P150 40 GPH powerhead turned way down.

*EcoPico White/Blue LED light

*Filtration media is Walmart Aqua-tech Hex 5 filter pad with carbon. (I've used these for years on reef tanks)

*A teaspoon each of Purigen and Chempure Elite to a media bag for additional filtration.

 

No heater is in the tank but it is staying n the mid 70's temperature wise. Nothing is glued in the tank everything is removable.

 

I was thinking just having it be a small invert tank.  What do you think, am I nuts to try this? Thinking just a couple hermits and a small cleaner shrimp for now.

 

I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Lighting and Top

I'd like a couple more corals for the top level.  Any thoughts on what would do well?

I think that the green star polyps and the mushrooms will cover the top very soon. But if you want more coral I would think that a green toadstool would be good. That is the smallest tank Ive seen. I hope it grows well for you.

some Dragon's Breath Algae would be cool on the top.
