DrakeScree Haha. My cellphone is a Droid so camera is really low quality. I have to edit the photos to show even a little detail.

aluka it looks like it got printed onto a newpaper and then scanned back into the computer, lol =D

Lil' Swimz$ Tank looks really cool but what the heck happened with the picture!?!?

DrakeScree The roots at the top of the tank are baby black mangroves, as per someone's suggestion to get something that will come out of the top of the tank.

All of the rocks in front of the driftwood are newly created moss rocks, using up all of the moss from the old moss wall that I ditched as another's suggestion. As well as some moss from Aluka.

DrakeScree I decided to pick all of the 2-3'' plantlets off of my java ferns. Ended up with about 20. Attached all of them to the driftwood on the left, along with 3 small sections of anubis (originally one piece) that I forgot I had in there.

It's a shame I have to take the tank down when I move next month.

DrakeScree the tank is a footprint iwagumi style? I have a style?? This is pretty exciting.

I really like the jungle val wall, but the tank is only 10'' deep of water. I think any plant will do for a wall. If anyone knows of something fast growing (so I only have to buy a small amount) I could use that. Trimming isn't a concern as long as I can sell or RAOK the trimmings. I'd say that it's preferable.

Saxtonhill Cork screw vals aren't as tall as jungle val...but there might be something more suitable out there...

aluka yea, but it'll just jungle up his tank, his tank is REALLLY short. normal hair grass will be the same height as his tank, lol.

honestly with this footprint iwagumi style is the best i think.

binbin9 yeah that'll be alot of potential trimming but I've seen some great tanks where they bend at the surface.

Not sure of any other grass plants that do low light

aluka his tank is really short, jungle val grows to like a foot + lol.
05-31-2013 09:09 PM
binbin9 maybe a tall grass like jungle Val
05-31-2013 07:56 PM
DrakeScree I agree Binbin. I didn't use enough moss to make it and it's growing poorly. Used maybe 1/5th the amount of moss than I should of.

Do you know any specific plants that would make a good wall?
05-30-2013 11:53 PM
binbin9 Tank looks great, I would probably give up the moss wall its a bit of an eye sore and go with some kind of grass back ground plant, like a Val.

DrakeScree Soup, you're right about the driftwood and plants coming out of the top. I need to redecorate and get some manzia branches soon.
I did add about 6 baby black mangroves. They will prob take way too long to grow in and look decent though.

DrakeScree Here's an update. Though the pics are about a month old, so the growth is thicker.

I would update more, buy my phone won't allow me to upload to the site.
