Now I want some newts! I love these little guys. I love all the thought that went into this tank.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

Me too! I never even thought of having newts in a planted tank and may get some or one of my own someday. Very cool setup, subscribing

Someone posted this on UKaps and thought it might be interesting to you. It's pretty much what I tried to describe when I said about adding plants.

Wow..

Wow, that's beautiful...

I wonder what they do to maintain it?

Looks like that mist king might be a good purchase after all...

Nothing but misting it and a water change every month. it's essentially a wabi kusa with some wood added. It's not even trimmed.

Awesome you say? Post some pics!

I've been thinking about it for nearly a week now, and I still want it.

I don't know if I should get a larger system and route it to both of my tanks, or just get two separate smaller ones...

The ultimate can run upto 20 nozzles. Here is my setup:

Ultimate System with no nozzles, no screen wedges, yes zip drip
2- Quad Head misting assemblies
2- Deluxe 'L' misting assemblies
7 port manifold

10 nozzles total. The seconds timer is relly nice as well as it can run as short as 1 second. I'm set at between 10-20 seconds depending on time of day. You can set upto 8 on/off settings.

For yours you would probably want the screen wedges and nozzles. If you did a manifold and 4 nozzles you could setup 2 on each of 2 tanks. You can send Marty over at Mist King and e-mail more then happy to help get the right things ordered.

Mist King

I went ahead and ordered the ultimate system with two screen wedges and 2 nozzles, with zip drip.

I'll probably call them later though to see if I got everything I need...

Hey Craig,

No updates... Waiting on the mist king before attempting emmersed.

I think they forgot about my order. I'll have to give them a call.

That sucks, maybe they were out of a part for your order. Send Marty an e-mail and you will probably get a quick reply.

mist king

Speak of the devil, it arrived today.

The system looks quite simple to use. Hopefully by Friday, I will have this running in my newt tank

Thanks Craigthor.

Needless to say, I am "pumped" :P

Emmersed plants will be :

crypts, anubias, and moss.

Any advice on getting these plants started really well?

Also, what have you done for ventilation on your setup?
