That is a cool idea Hunter P (Hunter Pence?) I'm actually fed up with my moss wall at the moment as well as terrestrial moss and just all moss in general. But enough on that, here are newer pics of my 30:






The Dracaena has two new crowns getting bigger, as well as my Crypt. Tropica pot. My anubias barteri raft can't take the weight of the anubias. I'm heavily procrastinating on trimming them. I propogated/trimmed the sweet flag in the back right even though it doesn't look like it. Java Fern rafts look good they just kind of float there.



I added a hanging planter of Bacopa carolina a while back. Looking good so far. My filtration is still weak. I need to look into a canister filter but I'm unsure of any that could reach down that far down, and outfall back up. Suggestions?

Updated Fauna:
9 Cherry Barbs (3M,6F)
1 Otto
3 Metallic Gold Barbs

Considering shrimp... Either Amanos or RCS.

Ooh I love this tank! The underwater section looks spectacular, the vals are especially awesome. I like the plant choice in the top part, but you might wanna spread around more bacopa stems to fill up the space.

I had an 18gal tall riparium with similar dimensions (20x10x20) and the same filter, but my plants outgrew it. Man, ripariums are notoriously difficult to photograph! (unless your name is Hydrophyte)

Wow it's been a while since I updated this.

So I took out the Dracaena. Its comeback kind of halted, so I tossed it. I replaced it with extra Alternanthera Reinickii I had. One of my favorite plants, looks great in a planter.

The Brazilian Sword is winning the best-looking plant award in my book. All the Cherry and Gold Barbs are loving life. I haven't seen any Ottos in a while, I might need to replenish that population.

I'm contemplating adding RCS. What do you guys think?

Here's a video update:



I shot it with a GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition.
