I recently took down a 10g tank that was giving me nothing but head aches. After many lost fish, disease ect I've decided that this tank needs to be something besides a fish tank. I've already got 3 planted tanks, so the thought of a 4th non fish tank sounds good right now.
This past weekend I put together this
I had a spark of an idea, tell me if this is do-able or not
Basically, I want to take this 10g tank, and put a bunch of the plants like the ones from the link above, with just some miracle grow potting soil, manzanita driftwood and rocks. I will use my finnex slim r for lighting. No filtration, no water falls ect.
This tank will sit directly below my 55g, my thinking is to drop an air line hose down into this, to "drip" water into the soil. Reducing the need to water, as I will probably forget from time to time. I've picked out a mix of med and low light exotics. Will this work? I have a design in my head, and I think it will look good. After looking at pages in this section, I see a lot of water being used. That's not the direction I want to go. Think, vase planted using a tank lol.
Thoughts? Things to think about? Issues I might run into? It will get some natural indirect sunlight, but not a lot.
