Pothos and Philodendrons make good low-light hanging basket plants. I'm sure I can find more..but those 2 were off the top of my head.

this is still looking great. do you keep it this well-tended all the time? i must admit my tanks are usually set to "cruise" and i only get them photo-ready when i can make the time. you have put a lot of TLC into this.

I do spend a lot of time on this tank since this is the only one I have right now. I try and keep it well manicured and trimmed up, stay on top of my water changes and cleaning my filters, etc. Sometimes I feel I am to compulsive but hey...I love it!

Thx for the comments!

Thanks Laura for the encouraging words! It has been a challenge for sure trying to scape this thing but I have truly enjoyed it.

Need some updates on your 90 gal tank. Haven't seen any in a while.

The enclosure is great. It nicely draws the line for the corner. Your tank has always been one of my favourites

It has been awhile since I have been able to update this journal. We got back from vacation last Friday and I still haven't been able to trim it. It is a mess! Tonight has been set aside to trim, clean filters, and do a water change. I will post pics of what it looked like before I left and what it looks like now and then after the trim. Also....I will have quite a few plants for sale that will be going on SNS.

Stay Tune......

It's funny that the plants that "finished this tank off" aren't even in this tank! I can't wait to see the pre-trip/post-trim pictures. I love seeing before and after shots.

Nice canopy BTW,

Thanks for the comments! There has always been something missing and it was the plants not in the tank. I have seen several tanks that have house plants around their tank and it really does finish off the look.


Well here it is 11:30pm and I have called it quites for the night. I still have some planting, my water change and to clean my filters so that will have to be tomorrow night. Must be patient for one more day for pics. Sorry to hold you in suspense.

Take your time. It's sure to be worth the wait!

Dang, I love how full the foreground is! The carpet itself looks like a 2D dutch scape in itself!
