Best TPT project ever!

People are too often merely stating an assumed truth from flawed observation.

Looking forward to seeing this progress. You should take a look through Medicineman's journal as it is similar to your build in some ways.

The 700 gal indoor sunken garden project

All matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death life is only a dream which is an imagination of ourselves. Bill Hicks

Cypress is virtually "bullet proof" and will take decades to show any decomposition. Can be incorporated into a divider across
the border between the "land" and water. Part or all of. Also might make a "tree in the water". Any or all with the bark still on it.
I'm from LA. originally so my thoughts would go there of course. And really, since it's a "water tree" you could actually put
a live one in there and the low light would make it grow more slowly like a Bonsai tree. But don't let my daydreams impose
themselves on your project...LOL...
But ferns...there's a large wild fern which grows primarily under trees and where common it makes the place look like a scene
from a dinosaur movie..does get about 4' though.

Here my comments ;

Im friggin so jealous that I cant do that right now!

I work from home and have two tanks in my home office, a 40g breeder and 20L riparium / planted (the differences become trivial IMO).

Anyways, this would be the ultimate home office set up! Good luck and keep posting photos of progress!
