Here is my riparium as it sits tonight:
OK, so it isn't quite ready for prime time
I finally made the mistake of spending too much time on Hydrophyte's website and blog, and just couldn't resist any longer. I have a good spot to put one, but it has a 10 gallon tank stand there, which stores the stuff for my other tank. So, I visited Craigslist, another mistake!
First I found the perfect tank, a 29 gallon complete with a beautiful stand, all for $60, but the stand is 36 inches long, too long for the space I have. Next, I found a 20H, which was $15! That one I checked out, only to find it was actually a 15H, which fits my 10 gallon tank stand perfectly. So, I bought it.
I forgot: first, I showed my wife one of the best photos Hydrophyte has, and asked if she would like one. And, she said, sure, but what about cleaning the algae off all the time. I assured her that Ripariums never get algae
And, off I go.
