Low tech 10 gallon Riparium growth update w/video

Hello everyone, I want to share my progress on the 10 gallon riparium that I have been growing for now almost a year. I say it is low tech because I am only using natural lighting from the windows for the plants. I also taken out the heater, the water seems to be at a good temp all year round.

Here is the video... HERE

Everything has grown like crazy with the minimum addition of osmocote ferts. The Pothos vine has spread throughout the office as you can see in the video. In addition I have also added a couple of lucky bamboo shoots

Wow, you're not kidding when you say everything has grown like crazy! You've got some very happy plants in there Do you have just the two fish in there? Looks like a pleco? What is the other one? They must like all that cover! Can you give us a full tank shot? What way does the window face (North, south, etc.?)

Wow those plants have gone wild in there. They must love that natural sunlight. It's interesting to see the Dracaena growing so happy. Sometimes they don't do so well in ripariums.
