pweifan Looking good! I'm glad to see it's still up. I can't wait to set mine up again. The weather here just isn't warm enough yet

So now that you've teased us about the 270 gallon pond... I'm going to check that thread out

Nubster Nice. I want to get one of these and do an outdoor "pond"...



335g and about 6' across, 2' deep. Less than $200.

xenxes's Balcony Planter 24g - "Mud Bucket"

Wow this is super cool! I was looking at some of the big plastic pots, 22-24", at lowes this evening for something similar to this!

xenxes It's still alive:


This was just after the move, before I took out most of the plants to throw in my 270g pond.


After the destruction. I added back in 2-3" clippings.


This is recently, stems grew back and water cleared up.

All plants are just plugged into the bottom now, maybe 6" of lava rocks + dirt.

Not sure if this has been discussed, but do I see that you have plants planted in clay pots within the planter?

Damn.. you have so many plants and stuff outside. Can we get a picture of how your balcony and living room look now :O

pweifan Oh no! Good luck with the pond and the crazy weather. Sorry to hear the L. Glandulosa isn't thriving like the rest of your pond.

xenxes That's red and blue rili shrimp, neocaridina heteropoda, more of them in my 9g (higher grade with helmet heads). I selectively bred some to be all blue in the 6g.

finsNfur Awesome shrimp! What kind is it?
08-24-2012 09:11 PM
xenxes It's not, not enough light unless I plant it near the water surface, even then it stays very small.

My rain water pH is 6.6? seems high? I thought we had acid rain. TDS 30, nice.
