It may look better if you add some rocks beside the driftwood.

I switched this over to a dirt tank. Threw some plants in just to get a feel. Riparium planters should be here this week. YAY!

Thanks! Feel free to ask anything, I'll do my best to provide you with any knowledge I have. There is also a great planted HOB thread, here

Did you go with all seeds from Devin or did you get some other plants?

No. I got the seeds from his RAOK thread and ordered more planters for those. The rest should be grown plants.

Did you get that box yet? I hope that the plants traveled OK. It has been pretty chilly here.
