hydrophyte This thread hasn't been updated in a long time.

I got the tank replanted with baby panda bamboo and Pilea grandifolia. Here's a shot of the riparium plants. The full-tank shot will look better when these plants have grown up a bit taller.

hydrophyte I'm replanting this one too. I screwed up buy not getting better pictures of it while it was grown-in nice. Now it is overgrown and it needs to be redone. I think I will use a combination of plants similar to what I had in there previously.

hydrophyte The gold white clouds look really good with the bricks that I have in there.

hydrophyte I like the 11.4. I lowered the water level a bit to improve the visual proportions and also to help keep fish inside. It is a bit more difficult to illuminate a tank of this size because there aren't many fixtures with that 18" width. I think that a pair of PAR30 LEDs would be good for the the 11.4.

Are you looking at Mr. Aqua tanks? The 11.4 and the 17.4 are both real nice sizes/shapes for riparium setups.
I'll be looking forward to it!

And yes, I meant the Mr Aqua tanks. I keep going back and forth between the two sizes. It will probably come down to whichever one the store has in stock when I go to get it.

hydrophyte Thanks Don I'm trying to get this setup into better shape for some more serious picture-taking.

hydrophyte I got a few new quick pictures. I'm still looking for the best way to get a good FTS.





I love these white clouds.
