 Cool  it.  For  all  we  know,  this  setup  might  have  been  kept  just  till  some  pictures  were  taken.
 
 Btw,  looks  like  it  even  had  a  filter,  beat  that  :O

 You  don't  go  on  record  as  creator  of  the  world's  smallest  aquarium  by  creating  a  model  and  taking  a  few  pics.
 And  if  the  guy's  son  is  indeed  a  breeder,  it  doesn't  reflect  in  his  choice  of  fish.
 I  am  firm  on  my  opinion.  The  man  is  nothing  but  a  no  good  publicity  mongerer  and  he  doesn't  care  a  damn  about  playing  with  the  lives  of  innocent  fry  as  long  has  he  gets  on  record  and  makes  his  'country  proud'.
 He's  a  disgrace  to  the  hobby.

 Here's  the  entire  article  from  THE  VOICE  OF  RUSSIA:
 
 Siberia:  bringing  the  world  the  tiniest  aquarium
 
 Tags:  art,  Commentary,  Society,  Russia
 Elena  Kosenkova,  Smirnova  Valentina
 Feb  17,  2011  16:15  Moscow  Time
 
 Just  two  teaspoons  of  water  –  that’s  all  that  the  world’s  smallest  aquarium  can  hold.  It  was  created  by  a  micro-miniature  extraordinaire  Anatoly  Konenko,  who  hails  from  the  Siberian  city  of  Omsk.  A  glass  cube  measuring  30  by  24  by  14  mm,  complete  with  sand,  multi-coloured  stones  and  seaweed  can  contain  10  ml  of  water  and  play  home  to  tiny  fish.  But  that’s  not  all  –  the  mini-aquarium  is  equipped  with  a  water  purification  filter.  It  took  the  skillful  master  about  two  weeks  to  fashion  it.
 
 Anatoly  Konenko  has  been  fiddling  around  with  micro-miniatures  for  30  years  –  he  was  the  first  such  craftsman  in  Siberia.  He  worked  out  how  to  write  on  rice  grains,  poppy  seeds  even  human  hair,  and  created  the  necessary  micro-instruments  to  do  this.  He  got  his  son  into  miniatures  too:  the  micro-aquarium  is  fruit  of  joint  labour  by  Konenko  senior  and  junior.
 
 "My  son  breeds  fish,"  Anatoly  explains.  "As  we  were  looking  at  them,  we  toyed  with  the  idea  of  building  them  a  tiny  fishbowl,  which  got  us  thinking  about  the  smallest  aquarium  in  the  world.  Turned  out  it  had  a  volume  of  60ml  and  we  thought  –  we  can  beat  that!  After  we  did  all  our  calculating,  turned  out  we  could  manage  10ml,"  he  enthuses.
 
 Only  baby  fish  can  fit  inside  the  tiny  glass  cube  that  is  the  world’s  smallest  aquarium.  Yet  this  isn’t  Anatoly  Konenko’s  first  record.  In  2002,  his  micro-book  that  measured  less  than  1  sq.  mm  entered  the  Guinness  Book  of  Records.  But  notwithstanding  its  size,  it  adhered  to  all  rules:  offset  printing,  hardback  binding  and  all.  Meanwhile,  the  micro-miniaturist’s  most  recent  accomplishment  until  now  was  the  smallest  ever  functioning  mousetrap:  6  by  3mm.
 
 Nevertheless,  Anatoly  Konenko  has  plenty  more  micro-masterpieces  up  his  sleeve,  including  a  violin  for  a  grasshopper,  a  camel  caravan  that  fits  inside  a  needle  ear,  an  alphabet  inscribed  on  a  hair,  a  zoo  that  balances  on  a  dragonfly’s  wing  and  the  most  stunning  display  of  all:  a  model  Eiffel  tower  that  teeters  on  a  mosquito’s  antenna.  Meanwhile,  Konenko  has  gone  one  better  than  forging  a  shoe  for  a  flea  –  which  he  insists  is  no  hard  task  –  and  made  it  a  set  of  jewellery,  including  necklaces  and  pendants.
 
 For  me,  micro-miniature  is  a  form  of  self-expression,  Anatoly  Konenko  says:
 
 "I  can  put  everything  I  study,  everything  I  see  around  me,  into  my  art  –  this  is  how  I  express  myself.  This  is  my  life,  this  is  everything  that  I  do.  I  know  other  masters  and  they  know  me  –  but  only  through  my  work.  I  communicate  with  Russian  craftsmen  via  the  Internet  –  we  discuss  all  novelties  that  come  about.  But  we  don’t  judge  each  other’s  work.  We  don’t  compete:  there  are  lots  of  areas  and  everyone  works  in  their  own  field.  If  someone  has  done  something  notable,  I’m  only  glad  that  this  person  lives  in  Russia.  There  aren’t  that  many  of  them  and  we  should  know  who  they  are  and  be  proud  of  what  they’ve  done  for  our  country,"  insists  Konenko.
 
 Anatoly  Konenko  has  taken  his  works  to  the  US,  Germany,  France,  the  Czech  Republic,  Spain,  Japan  and  China.  His  works  can  be  found  in  many  museums  around  the  world,  in  private  collections  and  in  libraries.  The  presidents  of  Russia,  Korea,  Belarus,  the  Czech  Republic  and  Slovenia  treasure  his  masterpieces.  And  who  knows  what  place  the  world’s  tiniest  aquarium  from  Siberia  will  call  home.

 Ohhh  boy...do  not  raise  that  alarm  ...think  about  feeder  fishes  ROFL  
 
 I  have  seen  many  people  acting  super  touchy  being  actually  SUUUUPER  IGNORANT.  This  is  creative  stuff  and  one  needs  to  appreciate  the  same  IMHO.

 There  sure  is  no  doubt  about  the  crativity.  I  would  have  highly  appreciated  it  had  it  been   plain  work  of  art  or  a  model.
 But  it  isn't  so.  It  contains  7  lifeforms  in  it  (4  fish  and  3  plants)  whose  adult  size  well  exceed  the  confines  of  the  said  "aquarium".  It  all  depends  on  what  you  consider  to  be  an  aquarium.  Is  it  an  enclosure  of  any  size  or  shape  with  a  substrate,  decor,  aeration  and  some  aquatic  life  forms,  irrespective  of  their  size?  I  stongly  donot  consider  the  above  work  of  art  as  an  aquarium.  And  I  may  be  wrong,  but  I  still  stick  to  it.
 And  feeder  fish  are  bought  to  be  fed  just  like  you  buy  market  fish,  chicken,  meat  and  eggs.  Always  remember  that  death  is  better  than  confinement  in  a  cramped  up  toxic  environment.  So  feeders  cannot  be  compared  to  the  plight  of  the  above  mentioned  frys.

 And  just  for  the  record,  in  my  short  time  as  a  proud  member  of  IAH,  I  can  guarantee  that  had  this  deed  been  done  by  any  member  of  IAH,  we  would  have  been  much  more  critical  driven  by  common  sense  and  our  experience  in  the  hobby.  But  just  because  a  critically  acclaimed  foreign  artist  has  come  up  with  the  same,  we  suddenly  become  very  appreciative,  ignoring  our  better  senses  and  consider  it  more  as  a  piece  of  art  than  a  maniac's  idea  of  an  aquarium  brought  to  life.
   I  am  ashamed  of  this  mentality  shared  by  a  majority  of  Indians  since  times  immemorial.
 Sorry  if  I  hurt  anyone,  but  I  stated  mere  facts.
