Prasantkmrs---Sorry! I owe you a belated "Thank you!" I appreciate the compliments!

Marko---I do have some updated "top" terrestrial shots that I'll share....I'll have to come back and post FTS and aquatic pics later this coming week. My Metallic Red was KICKING(!!!), but got choked out by the dwarf sag (I think) and melted. I did some pruning this past week to separate the two, and the MReds are already putting out new growth. and regaining their color.

Here they are about a month ago kicking butt. The leaves were even bullated, if you look closely:


Right Side:


Closer:


Getting some really intense colors on my Tillandsia:


Top:

Left Side:


Closer:


Nice look at the moss growth and some of the plant species:


Alternanthera "Raspberry Swirl" from Devin. Who rocks.


Lights and Mist shot:


That's enough for right now.....I'll get the other ones taken late this coming week and post some FTS and aquatic shots as well.

Thanks for looking!

Sorry for the double post... but I was just showing my friend and what came out of his mouth was "That looks like something from Alice in Wonderland". Truly psychedelic!

I agree! It looks like a scene from the enchanted forest - just need some fairies to complete the look!

Mmm raspberry swirl! Sounds like an ice cream flavour. What a beauty!

Thank you Samee! Crack is wack!

Keithy--Thanks man! I won't be in Lexington for a while. I was laid off two Mondays ago, so I have no idea if or when I'll be at UK again.

Mike--Thanks. It's real enough! lol! The colors really pop out if you take pics after soaking everything with tank water. I've learned that....if I don't, the Spanish moss is too white and really impacts pictures in a bad way. But, you are right...it's a nice tank with really cool coloration on top and inside the tank.

Sarah....Devin will throw in a surprise plant for me from time to time to try. This was a really, really nice find! It doesn't grow quickly, like the "normal" Alternanthera species, but the leaf color is amazing. He has given me some really nice plants since I've known him!

Your tank is looking great, as always. That raspberry swirl is insane!!! I also find that my pictures turn out better after a good misting.

Wooooow! Its so detailed yet natural feeling. I wonder how many folks have contacted Devin for their own raspberry swirl after seeing this!

Love it!

Johnson--Yeah, that Raspberry Swirl is really cool! I planted a few extra stems into the substrate to see if I might be able to get them to grow, but so far, nada. I may dig them up and add them to the trellis raft. And it's those darn white-colored hairs and "fuzz" on all those plants. If you don't wet them down, you just end up getting light-colored shots that really are very true to the colors you see with your eyes. I almost always douse things down now before a "shoot."

Dietz and Ziggi! Thank you both very much! I hope that Devin is benefiting. It seems to me that there are more ripariums now than there used to be. The more I can help showcase some of his plants, especially if they're "extras." The more the hobbyist has to choose from, the more fun the hobby becomes.

This is the most amazing tank ever! I am totally gonna do something like this eventually. I hope. If I ever can.

This doesn't have any CO2 or anything like that, right?

OMG, I am floored! I seen the Before pics, prior to the move and my heart sank at having to tear down such a beautiful set up. Then I read thru the thread and see these epic images of the Now. Insane my man.. my favorite Riptarium I've seen yet! Just wow!

You even have my BF commenting on how awesome it looks and until this point he has been anti-riptarium.
