I was able to get one step closer to the final product! Now it's time to sit back and see what survives! I just added water to the tank so it is still cloudy but made a little filter with a small pump, black foam and a zip tie. So far so good with water movement - maybe a bit too much...
I'm actually pretty please with how it turned out, silly stump and all. So for the plants here is the list -
Button fern (I think),
Oak Leaf Ficus,
a little plant that sprouted up from nowhere (on the tree stump, in the little pocket)
Christmas Moss (Laid out towards the back on the land area and on the walls where the water meets)
a few sprigs of Dwarf Hair Grass (I need more, anyone have some to sell??!
Crypt Parva (next to the stump)
The flooded part works pretty good and once the plants take hold I will lower the water level by about 3/4 of an inch.
Right now I will be adding ferts to the water column and then using a pipette to water the back plants. Misting with distilled water and put a piece of cling wrap on the top to hold in humidity.
Substrate! (Hydro's Ion Brick of course!)
Water! (mix of fresh and old tank water)
