Gooberfish Time for an update. With LOTS of pictures. I got a GoPro Hero 3+ Black edition so I've been going crazy with my aquarium photography.

Also I replaced the unsightly CFL fixture, with my Marineland planted LED. It looks much better!


















^This picture was from another day (old lights). Thanks for viewing!

Gooberfish Most of my plants have done well. Duckweed is actually a pain in the @ss. But I agree it does add more action.

KatherineL Hey I really liked your video! Your tank is so active... even the duckweed! Haha. I think the floaters really add to the riparium. Helps hide the baskets. Which plants have done well in your riparium setup so far?

Gooberfish Ya know what, I never got around to smelling them. They're almost to the ceiling so it would have been difficult to get a wiff.

Okay so instead of pictures, I have a video update. If you have nothing better to do in the next 4 minutes, give it a watch.

The hypoestis did not make it for some reason. So I replaced it with a stem of joseph's coat. The creeping Jenny I believe has died back for the winter. I didn't know it could do that indoors. I've cleaned out the submerged area of struggling stem plants.

AirstoND Are those flowers fragrant?

What do they smell like? Jasmine?

I have no idea. There's nothing shining on it. It stands in the dark corner in my bedroom. I guess the light in the mid section is enough for it. Seems to be doing fine.

This plant propagates really easily I'm going to try and keep it short.

Gooberfish Okay here's an update, pertaining to my Asclepias curassivica (Mexican Milkweed). IT'S BLOOMING!!

Note: Don't make fun of my ghetto CFL light fixture. I used it for aquaponics and thought it would be a good fit for this tank instead of sitting and doing nothing. It works great it just looks bad lol. This tank is in my bedroom.










I snapped on my macro lens and could not stay steady or focussed. This was my best shot of it close up.



I'll update the rest of this tank soon.

Thanks. Not sure I need it in the current setup anymore, but I may check that out in the future.

They are in plastic planters/pots that are suction cupped to the tank. See my 30 gallon tall riparium thread in my signature, detailed pictures there.
