well, lets do it then.
im gonna plant 3 different types of "substrate"
1-the Terra cotta "homer" chia container. instructions state to keep it full of water at all times, and if you grab the bare figuring, it will be wet to the touch (but not look it)
2-what im assuming is limestone. it didnt have a strong reaction to vinegar...what its actual Ca content is, idk, its a cool piece though.
3- wood. Malaysian drift wood or so labeled. pre soaked as usual.
my plan is for a lil vivarium/paludarium in a 2.5 (only spare i got
water flow is up in the air, idk if the toms aquatics lil pump (its small) is trust worthy or if i want to rig an aqua lifter to move water for me. it def. doesnt have to be fast, just moving. both rock and wood would be in the water in some shape or form.
water level will be LOW so the aqualifter is winning the argument in my head at the moment.
lighting is undetermined. i have the lamp for a standard 2.5 i could drop a new bulb in, or an old 12'' current usa satellite fixture i could drop a dual daylight lamp in.
know idea on what to put in it, but i did find a blue rolly polly in the yard that might make it in there.
