This looks amazing. I really wish I had a place where I could try something like this. My Sacramento place has a balcony but it does not get enough direct sunlight. My other place in Alameda gets too cold at night even in the summer for any fish I want to keep.

Anyone want some?
My local nursery always has tons of the mosaic plant in.
I could easily pick it up and divide it for anyone interested.

I dunno..
I'll have to check when I am there next... Most likely $10 - $15 for a big pot.
Why bill you?
I owe you already for that awesome shrimp and plant package!

Thats awesome.. I'm so jealous of you.. Sadly for me no more tank related purchases until winter.

Clippings are one thing, asking you to go out to buy something is another, we'll work it out later I hope these breed! I want TiBees!

WHAT ! That makes it much less awesome. It'll be hard to move it out of the way to get to the shrimp underneath. Still looks really nice though

I get no direct sun at all! Maybe 1-2 hours in the summer. Direct sun is bad for an outdoor pond. Even part sun outperforms 4x T5HOs. Full sun has a PAR reading of ~2000. I say go for it, get a container with sufficient depth (2-3ft+), plenty of plants and plant cover and you'll be fine.

yes quite. ur bucket has inspired me. i shall be making about 2 bajillion of these and probably not far away from a pond
BEST part about the buckets though is im gonna insulate them with reflectix and keep em heated in the winter.. shouldnt be too hard with smaller bodies of water

What does reflectix do lol?

I found a creepy looking shrimp cull in the bucket near the surface today... crazy red, think it's one of those PFR-rili mixes with too much red.




Nice to know they're growing in 500-700 tds water.
