FEMTO AQUARIUM # 6
- The field in a glass

                     A field with a dolmen
This time, I've been thinking of a Danish farmer's field with an ancient burial dolmen.  It should appear light and sunny, and you can imagine the lark, sinning above. It might just be a Copepod you see though, and a couple of black sheep grazing (looking suspicious much alike Black Coco shrimps). The entire landscape is made up by formed Marimo algae.

THE ANIMALS


Cyclops spp

Two Neocaridina davidi
, Black Coco
THE PLANTS

Cladophora aegagropila, Marimo Ball
THE MATERIAL

A cognac glass; 0,575 L


A bit of pebble to sink the algae


The lit is 1 mm thick, oval glass


Four small stones, glued together

                                                  THE THOUGHTS
This is a real simple construction, but still resample the farmers fields and the ancient burial mount with a dolmen, so often encountered in the Danish landscape. Plenty of light, but the open expanses might not be experienced fully...
                                                        THE BUILD
The algae is sown on to a piece of black cloth with pebble in-between.  The four stones are glued together to form the dolmen. The stones resample quit well the boulders, used for  dolmen, in a country without bedrock.
The second hand cognac glass was 1,50, the lit 1, the Marimo algae shared with one other aquariums around 4. The two Black Coco shrimps 5, and the shared background, shelf and LED light 5: A total of 16,50.
