BGK are awesome fish (currently have one in my 150g) and would fit your creepy theme. But they also grow well over a foot long so definitely not an option for a 10g.

Don't get much scarier looking...

DIY riparium hooks

One of the things that really annoys me about riparium planters is the suction cups - they inevitably lose suction dropping the planter into the tank and spilling the contents everywhere. So I came...

Thrips!

Hi all,
My 150g riparium was doing really well, but I unfortunately got an infestation of thrips that has wiped out almost all my plants. Any thoughts on how to deal with these pests?

What a coincidence - I just came across some of your youtube videos of this tank today.

Nice tank - almost exactly the same dimensions as my 150g riparium.

Lizard tail pruning

I've got a lizard tail (Saururus cernuus) that is growing completely out of control in my riparium. It's now too big to support its own weight and is flopping over and shading a bunch of other...

I guess the big body of water under them adds some extra humidity, but otherwise it's just regular room conditions. It does limit the range of plants that I can grow.

I assume by african knife you mean Xenomystus nigri. If so, I think you'll be fine. I'd be surprised if a 4" one could take down a 2" barb. I've housed them with fish that size with no problems. I...

There are some tannins from the wood tinting the water, but the diatoms I'm referring to are coating the leaves and wood itself.

A sloped substrate would probably look nice. I actually tried to...

That would be ridiculously overbuilt. Tripled-up 2X4s in that configuration would easily support a tank 10X that size.

1x4s will absolutely by fine. I'm using doubled up/tripled up 1X4s on my 150g...

Thanks guys



I got it from hydrophyte. I'm hoping it perks up though I'm a little worried about it. Definitely a really awesome plant.

Multiple plants in a single riparium planter

Any issue with doing this? e.g. putting cyperus and bacopa in the same planter (with the bacopa extending out over a trellis raft)?
