Tonight I pulled all of the plants off the drip wall. This is painful. I don't want to get rid of this tank. It wasn't working very well with the drip wall. The plants were too big, and it became one big mess. I wasn't spending enough time working on it. Now I wish I could keep it, get rid of the drip wall, and start over again. But now I am committed to getting rid of the tank so I can move some other furniture around. I even wish I had the space to store it for later when I have more room.

Whats the deal with par 30 bulbs?
Do they put out 30 PAR or are they named for the PAR CAN type of spot light lighting?

Once I get the new tank up, I will try and sell the tank and stand for $300. The lights, one of the canisters, and other parts and pieces will also be for sale.

One last hurrah for the 150. I got it empty and cleaned out. The 33 rimless is up and running right next to it. I thought it would be cool to grow some amaryllis flowers in the empty 150 and it kind of grew from there. I got a bunch of moss and stuff from some trees near my house. I think it makes for a nice holiday decoration, then I can sell the tank after Christmas.

I did get a small tree frog to put in there for my wife. I guess I will be getting a smaller terrarium at some point when I do finally sell the 150.

I was just looking through this thread and admiring your awesome tank. The wall of plants is really super neat. I was particularly intrigued by one of the plants, and wondered if you could tell me what it was. It was one of the first plants you put in the wall, in post #46 http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/1116241-post46.html I think its the third picture down- the plant with the really narrow spiky leaves and the pink blossom-ish thing on top. Do you know the name of that plant?

It is Tillandsia cyanea I have kept it before the only problem is the plant dies shortly after blooming so don't be surprised if it doesn't make it since you usually buy it in bloom
