|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?

|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?

I have some more updates. Fuschia cuttings have rooted, or I should say little nubs have popped up at each node. Brunnera macrophylla has water roots showing up everywhere. Lots haven't rooted yet so not much to update. My shipments were all grounded cuz of a cold snap here.

|DizzyD||I think this has been asked before but I didn't see any responses, Has anyone tried using a Marina Hang-On Breeding Box or a finnex Refugium for this hob plant box... Seems they might do the trick quite nicely. I might try it. I will post my findings if I do.|
