Here's a pic that's about a month old. I'm really tired of that giant red/brown plant on the left. It's ugly and takes up way to much space.

Does anyone have any suggestions or plants for sale I could replace it with? I would mind having a few different plants in its place, that corner has a large planter.

Does anyone want the plant? It's riparium proven for a year now with no problems. 5 bucks plus shipping takes it

It seems this thread is dead but in gonna keep updating it

I'm thinking of replacing the dual t5ho's with a 20w led floodlight. Has anyone tried these on a riparium I just put a 10w one over my 10g I'm really liking it and hoping to replace all my fixtures with led over time to save on my stupid high power bill.

That's a happy looking axolotl you have there. What do you feed him? How old is he and how long do they live?

I feed him 1/2 cube of bloodworms daily, he is only a couple years old but he can live up to 25 years as long as he doesn't morph.

Nice axolotl!

What is that plant on the left? Is it a Syngonium?

His name is fuego.

I have no clue what the plant on the left is but it will probably be up for raok soon. I hate it.

i agree the plant on the left may be taking up a bit to much space but it is cool looking. might want to keep it in mind if you ever upgrade the tank.

Heres a better pic of that plant. I just took a look at some of the first pics I took of this and I can't believe how much this thing has grown since I got it!

Yeah that's a Syngonium. Put it up for RAOK somebody will take it for a riparium or HOB.

You should put a Ruellia bluebells or Asclepias Mexican milkweed in that spot.
