I'm a very lazy gardener, so the difference before-after tends to be huge. The rate of Samolus
reproducing, spreading and filling up the tank has been a really big surprise.
Black mangrove has grown quite well recently, and I need to figure out a strategy to go with it. I have a dream I could help it to grow up bonsai-ish in there, but I'm still building up courage to prune it accordingly.
Absolutely wonderful! Keep updating! I think I'm addicted!! Lol
Hey HX67 did I ask you yet if you had ever purchased from that seller in Austria with the wide variety of mangrove propagules? I would be interested to know more about that.
I haven't gotten around to it yet, but am still intending to. Will update when there's something to report. They still look very promising.
The seller in question is http://www.mangrove.at/
Anyone with any word on them, please chime in!
Can something like this be pulled off in an open top tank?
An open top or a partially open front. Sure.
The only restrictions I can think of are the need for higher humidity the chosen flora and fauna may have and escape-proofing the tank.
My tank is open on the front of the top, which keeps the front glass nicely dry.
