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...

Sadly, no. I was tank-less for a while after I broke down my paludarium so I didn't have anywhere to house them. I really liked the somewhat unusual spot patten on my old archers and I've been trying...

I've heard about archers jumping but none of the ones I've owned have ever shown any inclination to jump. The biggest one I currently have lived in a tank for several months where the lid...

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)?
