Just thought i'd share the start of my riparium adventure. The tank is 60x40x30cm. Just simple planting, Java Fern, Vallisneria Asiatica, Anubias Nana, Dwarf Hairgrass, torn up Marimo Moss ball attached to small rocks. Hopefully it all grows in well and creates two islands either side of the tank. Above the water in planters are Syngonium, Chamaedorea Elegans, and some cuttings of Staurogyne Repens to see how they do. And floating is Phyllanthus Fluitans.
11 Nannostomus Marginatus/Dwarf Pencilfish.
6 Corydoras Trilineatus/3 Stripe Corydoras.
1 Apistogramma Agassizzi Male.
1 Ancistrus Temminckii female/Bristlenose Plec.
2 Hemigrammus Bleheri/Rummynose Tetra.
1 Trichopsis Pumilus/Sparkling Gourami.
1 Aphyosemion Australe/Lyretail Killifish.
1 Crossocheilus Siamensis/Siamese Algae Eater.
A few assassin snails.
The SAE and Rummynose Tetra will be given to the LFS along with a ton of MTS that I pulled from the aquarium when I stripped it down to build this.
The Sparkling Gourami and the Lyretail Killisfish will end up in a palaudarium i'll hopefully be making a start on in the next few weeks.
All pond solutions 1000ef External Filter.
Old Jewel Heater I had lying around till I buy something better and smaller.
Beamswork 18" LED Canopy.
2 Cheap Clip on LED Lights for the riparium plants atm.
Old Caribsea White sand(with pieces of gravel and fluval stratum here and there that I could not for the life of me be bothered to remove but think gives it a more natural feel).
Driftwood pieces mounted to slate.
Shower caddies filled with hydro balls and weed barrier.
Things to do/things im not happy with:
I wanted the water level a little lower but the outflow pipe wouldn't allow it so will have to find some extra pieces so I can drop it further down.
Get the lighting suspended above the tank instead of resting on it.
Hope I haven't sent everyone to sleep. Will try get some better pictures when matchsticks aren't propping my eyelids up.
