|cichlidfan||Saw a question about the name of an orchid in a previous pic. It is Calopogon tuberosus. It is a bog plant. I imagine that sort of plant would do well in the HOB planters.|

Sponge,Media beads, bag gravel, sponge? I even read the how to thread and in the pictures it looks like a bag of carbon under the top sponge

|venymae||Wow what a fascinating thread! Just read the whole thing. I have a small HOB that was accidentally colonized with java/christmas moss from when I trimmed the tank. Will post a picture soon as it looks super awesome now.|

|AquaAurora||Sadly my HOB is currently not planted, all the plants moved over to the 55g with a canister filter and were stuffed in riparium baskets and floating rafts... but I love riparium setups so much I'll probably try several new plants on my 20g and pack the aquaclear70 top full of plants again once it warms up and I can find some things.|

You guys have created very awesome set ups from that simple idea!
Please keep posting!

The massive blob of plants on the left (not the palm) are all in my aqauclear 70 HOB including Pothos, Tradescantia zebrine (aka wandering jew), Creeping jenny, and Fittonia albivenis
The pothos and wandering jew hand down to the table the tank is set on.

No fish up there, but shrimp and snails climb up to eat the algae that grows on the walls

I dig your auto topoff bottle if that's what it is. Do fish ever swim up in there?

A slight redo of mine, here's the latest

|Sparklescale||Absolutely awesome! I have a 37g drilled with a sump that has a large drainbox attached to the outside of the tank....might have to try a reverse version of the hob and see if I can get a garden growing on top of my tank, too. see pic of the drainbox...lots of room for plants in there, just the direction of the water will be reversed from what everyone here is doing.|

The nutrients that feed your plants in the water will feed the plants in the hob, thru their roots.
With any tank, don't overfeed

absolutely a wonderful idea! do you guys put any form of plant fertiler or liquid co2 into the tank? i havnt really noticed any fish in these setups? if you do have fish in these tanks, does this setup allow you to feed your fish more then usual, meaning instead of 1 frozen cube a day to say 2 a day as the plant would filter the excess nitrates out?
