I took the rounded river stones out of this tank and I'm cleaning them up to use my 56G Borneo setup. I intend to replace them with some angular pieces of limestone from our yard that will better represent the Lake Tanganyika environment. It's too bad that I didn't make that happen before the blizzard came and dumped 15" of snow and ice on everything: now I'll just have to wait for a thaw.

In the meantime I'm going to keep working on the riparium planting. I've thought about it quite a bit and I think I'm going to do something similar to this planting that I had in here a long time ago with a few tall Cyperus plants as the background and Bacopa monnieri with other emersed stems growing as a floating carpet of foliage. I think this will work well. I plant to use the Cyperus as well as some Ruellia and another flowering plant.

Here's another view of that old planting.
