Nice. This is really shaping into that lush, exotic look that makes me like ripariums so much. Keep going!

Thanks, I am enjoying this tank, its right behind my laptop when I work. It was surprisingly easy to get plants to grow here with window light. still have not added fish yet but I am planning Kribs and Cories or Zebra loach. I want to keep the bio load low. I plan to try out house hold plants to see which ones work and which don't. I have seen this plant tried before Polka Dot (Hypoestes Phyllostachya) and want to see how long it lasts on trelis raft and planted partial out of the water

Cool new toy! I'm half expecting a hand to rise out of the mist. Your tank looks great. getting any closer to deciding on what fish to add?

( I also went with the 2211 on mine and have been very happy with it so far.)

The kids have been promised they can pick fish for this tank. I think it will be a pair of of Kribs and 4 male guppies, one for each kid (don't want a million fry) maybe a trio of panda Cory's, fogger is very cool look and kids think it looks evil. Lol. The gf just shakes her head wondering why we need a fogger..... Cause it was half price that's why. Lol

2111 is perfect for this size tank and is really simple to clean. Never had classic before. Would but another. I have an Eco pro on the 75, and had 2026 pair on 220g tank that were rock solid. Love eheim filters, they just work and are very quite.

It looks very cool in a dark room with the tank lights on.

So cool! The tank is just perfect. Pothos would look really good, it would grow and you could eventually cover up the lights with it =]

That's looking real good.

I have wondered about using prayer plant. Does that specimen have any new roots forming?

Thanks this is my favorite tank to work on.

This plant has been growing like crazy in a planter. I see new roots in the planter I bought from you. These work great. It's added about 4-5 new leaves in 2 weeks. It seem to like the environment.

boston fern is not doing well. I am looking for a fine or moss that might like to grow on the wood that leaves the water. Any ideas on what I could attach and let the roots dangle into the water.
