The smallest nano planted aquarium

I suppose this could technically be considered a nano riparium, but this nano planted aquarium is the smallest little aquarium I’ve made. Sand in the front, and eco complete substrate in the back for the plants. It houses pond snails, blue leopard ramshorn snails, copepods, and detritus worms. It’s a tiny complete ecosystem.
