I'm starting this thread to track progress on my rimless 20 gallon riparium build. I'm still in the design phase right now but I'm sure this project is going to be a blast to do. I'm planning to do a 2/3s filled design with various plants in the center.
This will be my second planted tank and probably my 5th or 6th aquarium. I also maintain a 20 long mixed reef system that has been up for a little over 2 years now.
I wasn't a huge planted fan a few years ago but of course the Beauty grew on me
20 Gallon Long rimless
2x24watt T5HO (Midday and AquaFlora)
6 Hanging riparium planters.
So I after consulting hydrophyte I think im going to go with the t5HO lighting, I have to order some new bulbs though. In the meantime here is a little start to finish collage of the tank the 20 gallon is replacing.
That's going to look amazing. I'm so jealous of you guys that find these awesome pieces of wood. I live in an area that it should be so easy to find stuff but I can't to save my life.
Thank you! I'm very lucky I find such cool pieces.
There is a nursery I frequent that has some really amazing pieces but they are gigantic. I'm trying to convince the wife into the idea of a large planted tank but with my reef tank and now this riparium I think I have probably hit my quota.
