Sorry for the late reply. I just came back from a 9-day vacation in
Holland, where I failed to locate a good Dutch aquarium! (Didn't really try
that hard though. Had too many other things to see. But I saw a lot of
crappy saltwater aquariums.)
Anyway, I don't think you should knock my tank before you see it. By one
gallon, I meant 1 gallon of water. It's actually larger, but is filled
with gravel, rocks, driftwood and plants, with 1 gallon of space left for
water. The plants are doing well, and the 3 otos seem very happy. They
have lots of space to swim about, hide, or chase each other. They seem
very playful, and not restricted at all--a far cry from the cups the Bettas
live in at the shops.
I monitor their environment almost daily, and everything seems perfect (no
ammonia, no nitrate, etc.). The plants seem happy, the fish seem
happy. What else can I ask for? ;-)
BTW, have you seen the tiny 10x10x10cm aquaria in Amano's books? Those are
much smaller even.
