here are the pics! i like the scape better, but im still not satisfied. but i really am liking the riparium idea
the filter is loud though! what can i do to make the filter not be loud? should i buy a sponge filter? im thinking of adding a few cories. definitely want to get some stems or something else in the tank. to add color
i have a small little cattleya mounted on the DW where it is out of the water. and im planning on getting more plants that will grow from the water and come out. and some that i can maybe hang in planters on the back.
BUT ill have to do something about the hood. easiest thing would be to put more powerful bulbs in the fixture. and then mount it on the wall high enough so i can have some short plants under.
any suggestions about the filter? should i get a sponge filter?
any suggestions about the light? would my idea work?
any plant ideas? some that will grown from the water out, and some that i can have in planters
are there any good sites i can just read about ripariums?
