Please post pics of your scaped emersed tanks

I am setting up a 20" long x 12" wide x 12" high scaped emersed tank with high light. I would like to see pics of your scaped emersed tanks for inspiration!

A viv is basically a scaped emersed tank, right?

I guess a viv can contain non-aquatic plants as well. I am looking to set up an emersed tank containing only aquatic species.

"arium" is latin for container, and "viv" meaning having to do with life.
vivarium means "life container" and is the umbrella category for aqua ariums for aquatic life (aqua meaning water), terra ariums for terrestrials (terra is earth), etc.

an "emersed aquarium" = a terrarium (by definition)
and an exclusively aquatic plant would not survive emersed (ex, a lotus), most of our "aquatic" plants are really bog plants.
