frenchie1001 Great post! I feel a lot less daunted now. With hanging the plants, are they a off shelf thing or did you adapt something?

MurphyC I have read a great deal about ripariums over the last few days, your work is simply amazing.And on the back of my research I am now planning to take down my thickly planted tank in order to start over in this manor.

hydrophyte It would be really difficult to keep any kind of animal with emersed crypts. The leaves are so soft that they can be flattened real easy.

I think that a riparium would be way too much water for a gecko. I would worry about the gecko falling in and drowning.

fusiongt Would love to see a gecko up top and fish on bottom

My full journal should still be around here somewhere I try not to delete pictures so if I ever want to go back and revisit ideas I can still see them.

I wish that I hadn't gotten rid of that 55G that I had.

My 150 was a blast when it was setup as a high humidity riparium.

150EH This is my first time here and it was very informative and the photos are awesome!

hydrophyte Wow I haven't been back into here in a while.

I am working on a couple of high-humidity setups and I hope to have some new pictures, so I am resurrecting this thread.

VaultBoy I have only ever seen one magazine here. It was supposedly a quarterly publication but i have never seen it again.

I rely on the internet almost entirely for any and all information relating to the hobby.
04-18-2011 01:30 AM
hydrophyte I will try to add some more. I might just work on the magazine article to get something more polished.

Which hobby magazines do you gat there in Australia? DO you have any published right there?

VaultBoy I have just seen this for the first time... please finish it
