They will not do well with the fake lighting IME.
If you misted them etc, often, but the lights tend to dry them out too much and it's too dry where you live for them to grow.

There are such succulents and native CA plants that will do okay though.

Going to let the HC fill in for a few more weeks before I flood it. The front area is going to have sand.

Do not let the DSM get too moist. Mist daily good. Let it air afterwards 1-2 hours, then add cover back.

Tile looks better, just add a 2" floor drain and slope the tile that direction

Awesome tanks. You should get some terrestrial plants growing on that "tree" like some ivy vines or something and trim them to make it look like a real tree growing out of the tank.

Good idea, but it looks like the tile is already done.

Nice choice on tiling the floor... though I bet it was a time consuming job to move the tanks out of the way then back.

How's the tree tank? Did you figure out a lighting solution?

I love the 90p rescape. What is the hardscape... is it all stone? I'm trying to figure out from the pic how you built it up, created the rock island look. Very cool. It will look great filled in and with a sand front. Your designs are always impressive!

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.

The tree tank has a 36w Archaea light on it for now just shining on one section of the water. I got other things going on right now so I am not in a hurry to get a better light.

The 90p mountain scape is aquasoil and stone. The larger mountains are made up of a few larger rocks arranged so that they look like one large stone. There are a few gaps between the larger stones that will get filled in with mini pellia to help them look more like one piece.

That tile looks really nice and is probably going to save you a bunch of time and effort. Like Tom said, I would have put a drain and sloped the floors as well but I can understand why you wouldn't. I don't know if the fiance would ever let me install something to purposely make it easier to get the home wet/dirty either haha.

Your 90P scape is amazing. How much sand do you plan on putting in the front? I may have to copy this at some point on a nano sized scale.
