Well, if that picture isn't a teaser shot, I don't know what is!! Now, I'm just kinda angry about it.

...more pictures on the way as soon as I can.

Here's a quick placeholder for another species that would be cool to try in here, an orchid that grows on trees in mangrove swamps!...

Google: Brassavola perrinii

I'm tearing this thing down and putting it back together tomorrow to get it into better shape. I hope to have more pictures on the way soon.

I was just working on it. I am putting the tank on a better stand. I'm using a stand of this design...

I took this setup apart, cleaned everything and then put it all back together.

Here's the tank empty again.

Here's a quick shot, kind of dark, with substrate, water and plants.

The airstone was temporary. I was using all-new water and I wanted to pH-balance and mix in the salt faster.



There are some great plants in there!

Thanks Don. Here's a quick plant list...

black mangrove
white mangrove
red mangrove
Pandanus tectorius
leather fern

Yes there is a group of sailfins in there right now. I moved them in there just last night. They look rather bleached out right now but I hope they will start to color up again.

Hey thanks!

There is probably only about 22 gallons of water in there, but I can add quite a bit of livestock because of the high water surface area to volume ration\, the broad footprint and the filtration by the plants.

I got a few plant specimen shots while putting this thing back together.

Here's the Acrostichum leather fern.
