Forgot about this thread. I was not going to post anything as I thought "nothing has changed". But looking at older pictures, my Peace lily is catching up. So here are few shots.
"HOB" small water fall.
The paint cup HOB. Not much going on here. The moss I brought in from my pond disappeared. The java moss is doing nothing.
And the tank itself. Obviously, high tannin water

Previous posters need to come back and post update shots, tell what has and has not worked out over the months/years on their HOBs!
The plant mass continues to grow!
Helxine soleirolii is just going nuts on there!
My one regret is I slapped the riccia on top of cut pieces of foam instead of using one flat piece.. I need to take out and clean the filter media but that will make a mess of the riccia :/

Thanks for the advice, I won't use them in the filter then. I made canvas baskets for them with suction cups since I couldn't find any grid type shower caddy's.
For the filter, dragon tongues and baby tears is what I would love to do, but how much light would they need? I need an option that won't require any additional lights and my light can't be raised. My tank is across my front room from a large 8' window so while not directly in front of the window it does get some sunlight.

I went to Lowes and bought two very pretty peace lily plants, could someone enlighten a complete noobie on how to prepare the plants to either be planted here in the hob or in a hanging basket on the back?
I've washed the plant and cut most of the roots off already, it only has a small root ball left. Do I need to cut the rest of the roots off or is it ready to go in like this?

|johnson18||My HOB on the 20L died not long ago. Any suggestions on a new one? Haven't really been worried about it as there are three large sponge filters back behind the driftwood. The plants in the HOB are finally starting to suffer though...|

I have riccia growing on my outflow filter pad. The flow is pretty slow and it clogs regularly so I need to do delicate rinses. Riccia got trapped and started growing and I noticed I don't have bit floating on the water which is convenient

Added some moss to HOB outflow.
Might as well revive this thread a little. Made some minor changes to my HOB planter.
Added some moss that I spread on geotextile. Not sure what type of moss that is. I also threw in some moss from the pond. We shall see how that turns out.
