The World's Smallest Aquarium

Russian miniaturist Anatoly Konenko has been creating miniatures for thirty years now. He invented his own technology on writing on rice, poppy seeds, as well as human hair. He has recently created the world's smallest aquarium with live fish. This tiny tank is made of fibreglass and there are living algae on the bottom. There is even real fish there, which size doesn’t exceed 4 mm.

The size of the tank is 30 x 24 x 14 mm, its volume: 10 ml. which makes 2 teaspoons.

It took Anatoly three weeks to create the tank, but the most difficult part was to build a micro air compressor.
