Planted Tank Obsessed
75g Riparium - Thanks Riparium Supply!
Here are pics of my riparium. Thanks to Hydrophyte and Riparium supply for all the help and supplies.
75 gal - 48x18x19
Water level is set for about 8"
2x54w Tek T5HO w/ Giesemann Aqua Flora & Giesemann Midday Sun bulb combo
Quikrete all purpose sand
Marineland C220 w/ extended intake/output
Current USA Subcurrent in tank filter for surface skimming
Spathyphylum sp. - Peace Lily
Echinodorus cordifolius - Radican Sword
Hemigraphis sp. - Purple waffle
Acorus gramineus - Sweetflag
Bacopa monnieri - Water Hyssop
Various crypts and mosses for underwater
Plants are planted in Riparium Supply planter cups with Grey Coast calcite in the cups. The dark grey color hides the planter cups agains the black background. The hemigraphis and bacopa are floating on the foam trellises also from Riparium Supply.
Root tabs under the crypts. I drop in a little bit of KNO3 every now and then. The tiniest bit of Flourish once a month. Plant growth is good. The left side of the underwater portion is newly planted and the crypts are still in their emergent forms.
Thanks again to Devin and Riparium Supply. This has been one of the funnest tanks I've ever had.
