Sphere riparium

Hello guys,

First of all, I apologise for any potential mistake in my English since it is not my native language.

I have recently established a sphere riparium which is approximately 40 Litre (10 Gallons). I am using Fluval 106 canister filter and DIY pendant light comprised of COB Led with 35 watt power. Above water section, some indoor plants such as Peace Lily, Syngonium and a kind of Maranta species were placed via planters.
No substrate is used, roots are free. Underwater section, there are mostly Anubias species. I would be pleased if you comment. Thank you for your interest and time.

Stunning, I love it! Thought of doing something like that, but all my bowls are too small

I am at work now. I thought that I could put some old photos in coffee break
Actually, I was aiming at to set up a high-tech planted tank instead of a riparium at first. Photos below shows my first attempt would be high-tech. However, I got an job acceptance in abroad and I made up my mind. Then, I ended up with the current riparium you see. Let me say the truth, fortunately I could not make it high-tech with this sphere tank because its inside barely appears due to geometry when it is filled with water.

Also you can see some components of my DIY pendant led light in the second photo.

I will post more riparium photos including developments in the following days. Thank you for your interest.

Wow very lovely set up!
Be careful with peace lily though, some sp. can get 90cm+ tall! But a few peace lily sp. stay short around 30cm.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.
