Frank, I could only imagine what he sees in his dreams. lol! Probably Beatles.

Thank you Neatfish and MB2! Thank you for the compliments!

Thanks C_gwinner! Actually, this setup is very easy, maintenance-wise. Mostly, it's the watering of the plants on the branches daily, and top-offs. Every other week or two, I will do a quick water change just to suck up some mulm, scrape the glass, and maybe trim the stems if they need it, and that takes about 30 minutes. I am pretty stringent about removing any floating leaves, but I just usually add those to the top branches to fill in some spots that need some extra supplementation. Old, decaying leaves are great and will leech nutrients to the terrestrial plants, and also back into the tank, as well as soften and acidify the water to a degree.
