Pages 1-5: Vivarium
Pages 6+: 60-P REBORN

Hello all!
Let me start off by saying that this is my first journal.
So, I've tinkered around in this aquarium biz and I have decided that I should not be limited to just inside my tank, but rather I should try to re-create nature completely, submerged below the water line, and above it.

So here is the list of my tanks so far:

ADA 60-P: Decrepit Island
6 Gallon Custom Vivarium: Forest Nights
10 Gallon Temporary Fish Home: Blank Screen

So any constructive criticism or ideas would be helpful. Thanks.

That was cute, but the camera motion is very distracting.

I'm doing something similar with my Fluval Ebi.. so it will be interesting to watch what you come up with.

Here's the pictures of my progress (the layout):

Here's dome plants I found while rock-hunting:
http://s1279.beta.photobucket.com/us...tml?sort=3&o=4
http://s1279.beta.photobucket.com/us...tml?sort=3&o=5

All the rocks I found at a local spot. This is the layout I plan to use, with the waterfall going down the rocks on the right. I decided to scrap the spray system because I can't find any help for how to do it, plus I am not sure how to make it so mold won't grow.

Sorry you have to go to the link. Just putting them as pictures wouldn't work for some reason.

Sorry no posts for a while. School gets in way the sometimes . Though I'm pretty stoked about going to the LFS tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get a nice colorful bunch of stem plant for the 60P.
