The tank looks about like it did in this picture from a couple of months ago.



I haven't taken very many recent pictures. I really like how the plants have grown up tall, but they make it hard to photograph the tank because they throw so much shade.

I ponder restocking the tank and maybe also replanting. I would like to try a different plant them. I might plant it up with this Pleioblastus bamboo as the main background plant.

Anybody want to buy some cat palms established in planters? It's kind of difficult for me to let these things go because I raised them up from little seedlings and they are awesome riparium plants, but they are big and I don't have space for them and I want to replant this tank. These things could be a really great plug-and-play option for a dramatic riparium layout.

These cat palm would look right in a tank low and broad like a 40 Breeder, 50 or 75.

Whoops!

I made a big mistake and clumsily put a 1/2" chip in the middle of the top of the front pane of glass. The chip has a round, concentric shape to it and I don't think it has weakened the glass much, but it is really conspicuous. I think that I need to turn the tank around or else it will drive me nuts.

It shouldn't be too hard to drain the tank, pull out most of the rocks and gravel and spin it around, but I'm sure it will take a couple of hours. What a pain!

What do you mean do you want a list of plants? If you can tell me which video I can explain which kinds of plants I used.

Sorry to be so confusing, it was an old post you replied to with a link to a youtube video, here. I have my page set for 40 posts per page so I see back further than most.

Oh that video was not mine. I think that George Farmer from the UK put together that tank. I had linked it because it's a good illustration of one nice way to scape the underwater portion of a riparium, with no plants at all but a well-rendered stone hardscape and fish stocking.

I've come across his tanks before and he does nice work, I came across his Flickr account by accident looking for an A. crispus 'red' and he had an awesome gallery of photos.
