My dragon tongue does great close to strong light (13 watt 6500k cfl). My HOB use to have several plants but has been taken over by the Helxine soleirolii

|Nubster||That's awesome. I need to get into Lowes and see what goodies I can find. I used some Lowes plants in my tank a couple years ago and they did alright. Not sure off top of my head what they were...I'm terrible with plants names. I think it's all in my Blue Diamond thread I started way back when...this time around I want to keep it more simple. I really like your spillway idea and then maybe some red root floaters and keep it at that instead of all the baskets and rafts I had last time.|

I've had to hack the filter back twice, gets taller than the lights. This stuff grows like a stem - chop it short and it regrows.

This tank still alive? I've done something similar in the past but to less effect. I'd like to do it again on the tank I'm currently setting up which is a 12" cube Mr. Aqua with an AC 20. Might have to bump up to my old AC 70 if I decide to do this but I think the motor is burnt out. This was my last attempt a couple years ago. Things were doing good until I got lazy and let things go to shizit.
This has definitely given me renewed interest. I might dust off my larger Mr. Aqua instead for this project...the one in the picture which is 19" across and 12x12. 11.5g total.

Your thread has inspired me to attach a marina breeder box to a mr. Aqua 3G.
It's a work in progress.

I love this idea and I'm stealing it for 4 filters on my 3 tanks with clip on lights. I know I want different plants in each one and know all the plants I want to grow in the filter. However I am having trouble coming up with more than just Monte Carlo on the spill away mesh. I want to put Staurogyne Repens in my penguin 100B and Anubias nana in my penguin 150B, both are on my 40g breeder. I also what to put a Java Furn in my quietflow thats on my 15g. My 38g has a AquaClear 50, but because of the way the light is on it I can only do the spillway. I intend to use my Monte Carlo on the 38g but I'm at a loss for the other 3 spillaways.
EDIT: I just noticed your automatic top off, vary cool.

Not that I know the particular plant but many ferns require high humidity.
The fern mentioned in #80

Wow very nice office, to hell with the bland cubical!!!
Your wondering jew is the most purple-est I've ever seen!! Is it because of variant/sub species, nutrients, or your camera? Your fern on the far left looks like it needs a little love :c
