Hidden Walrus,

This is very interesting to me! Thanks for sharing your experience. I just bought a huge AquaClear that I had some reservations about, being that it's going to go on a 15 gallon tank, but with some creativity I think I can make it something to look at now.

Keep up with the ideas folks! And thanks!

Thanks Hidden Walrus. Great advice.

Anyone know how to grow anubias nana emersed? I have some in my smaller tank that I want to switch to emersed growth. Do I just take it out of water and leave the roots and rhizome in the HOB? Afraid the leaves will dry out. Will the leaves initially die off and then grow back? Don't want to kill it.

wicca27: Have you considered making a trellis, getting a wheeled tank stand and lowering tank height?
