Mr. Aqua 11.4G Riparium - Take 2
I have had this tank sitting empty for almost a year, but I want to set it up again.
A couple of years ago I had a nice planting in here that featured baby panda bamboo (Pogonatherum crinitum
). This plant proved to be an excellent choice as nano riparium background foliage, if a bit challenging to grow. It is one of the few riparium plants that I have tried that I would characterize as "high light". You really do have to shine pretty bright light on it or it will grow thin and spindly.
I might use baby panda bamboo for this new planting, or I might opt for something new. I have been testing out a few other new riparium selections and I have some good possibilities.
Here is an old shot showing the tank when I first set it up two years ago. I am going to work on putting it back together today. I also intend to paint the wall a dark purple as a better background color. Plants do not look very good against that dull tan.
