First attempt...wabi-kusa 24L.

Hi,
this is my first attempt to grow plants emersed.
This was an iwagumi tank with Utricularia. If I have "lower" tank, it would be better.

tank: 40l*30w*20h(cm).
light: 20W T8

Plants: emersed: Lugwigia repens, Acorus pustatus, Java fern, Alternanthera splendida.
submersed: Java fern, Anubias nana, Pogostemon helferi.

Fauna: Tiger shrimps.

Very nice!
I like the planting container idea opposed to the ball of clay.

I like it. In practise, doesn't the glass above the water line tend to be covered with condensation and difficult to see thru? I always wondered about that, since that was the old problem I used to have with paludariums.

Thank you!

Kayen: I was afraid that clay would dissolve in the water so I used this method.

houstonhobby: I don't know. The tank is only few hours old.

DarrylR: It is river sand. And in the container is ADA Amazonia+JBL Florapol+JBL kulgen.
Yeah, Bleach.

That almost looks like a tank for some tiny terrapins or something with the plants/wood coming out of the waterline.
