Hi Hydro! It is going great - I have been taking pictures, now I just need to upload them. I have been fishing my rcs's out of my main tank and throwing them in here - they love it, all the roots to cling on to. they especially love the pools in the waterfall. They climb the wall and hang out in the top pool. I took out the ricca that was in it so its just a few rocks. Its funny to watch them climb up the dry spots to get to the pool and then on into the HOT filter...
The plants are happy (though, the panda is proving to be slow and only one sprig has made it, but its hanging on!). So now it's just a waiting game to let them fill in.
I did order a custom tank for the new project - 24x14x14 with a starfire front, I am so excited to have the extra area! 4-6 weeks and it will be here. I am going to do a waterfall in this one as well but have a few new ideas now that I have seen the current on in action. It will be of similar size but this time I plan to incorporate planters closer to the water fall to hide the sides a bit more in the next one as well as use a canister filter to keep the visual clutter down.
I'll post pictures this week at some point. Thanks for checking in!
PS - I do love that tank above the plant layout looks amazing - I love the foreground plant (Bacopa?) A must do in the new tank
