    Oh! Any piece of glass will do. If you don't have the right size kicking around, you can have one cut. Or if someone in the family knows how to cut glass they can do it for youfrom a spare sheet.

    Some plastics will work too, but others will melt, so that's a little harder to be safe with...

    You should be able to pick up a small filter for less than $10 at pretty much any lfs, or even walmart. Nothing that would cause too much turbulence though. Maybe a sponge filter.

    i suppose you could use a small sponge filter with plenty of water changes if you insist on having a 1 gallon tank... most of the 1 gallon tanks that i've seen were used as terrariums or display tanks for water wheels or other animated air-driven ornaments, without fish of course.....

    if you insist on keeping a 1 gallon tank healthy for fish, your best bet would be to set it up with a 10 gallon sump and do 20% water changes weekly. put your filter in the sump. most 1 gallon tanks are plastic, easy to drill for overflow. but, if you really want to go through that much hassle why not start with a bigger display tank in the first place? something tells me that you're just trolling.........

    Hope you're not planning to put fish in this? Too small for any fish I know of. You could possibly put a few shrimp in if you have java moss for them (increases surface area) but I really wouldn't put anything live in it personally. Except maybe a plant, and just use it for decoration.

    I agree and this same discussion has been brought up before. One gallon is far too small.

    Cer, I notice you have a 10, 30, 50 and 75 gallon tank. Is there some reason you have to use this one gallon?

    Shrimp. I just wanted to try them out. I had to sell all of my tank and fish except for my 10 gallon. I moved.

    I know it really sucks. I am not going to get so big this time. Maybe 2-3 1-5 gallon tanks. My 10 gallon and a 55 galllon.
