It brings a whole new meaning to the term 'nano tank'! Measuring just 30 x 24 x 14mm, this aquarium can fit into the palm of your hand – and houses live fish!

Created by Russian artist Anatoly Konenko, this miniature is claimed to be the world’s smallest aquarium and you can watch it being set up on the video below:

In 1981 Anatoly Konenko began to pursue the art of micro-miniature and within a short period had invented and mastered the technology of writing on rice, poppy seed, then a human hair.

Along with his son Stanislas, they now create a whole host of miniature versions from books to fish tanks, ships in bottles and a full chessboard with playing pieces. You can find out more about Konenko’s inventions on his own website.
