There is a planted 2gallon hex tank behind, with an aquaclear20 that I am going to put a plant in. But it's not ready for pictures yet.
This has been going for about a month, I moved the orchid while it was already blooming. But I gave it some kelp fertilizer first and that seemed to prevent much transplant shock.
That black gravel is fluorite black, and there is a pinch of mineralized topsoil,sul-po-mag, and food grade diatomaceous earth under it. There is crypt parva behind the rock(above area with MTS), eleocharis acicularis mini infront of Rock, and anubias nana petite on the wood and right beside the rock. Duck weed on the surface and Weeping moss growing on the wood over the orchid roots. All I do is top it of with RO water. There is no algae so I don't want to add snails. I haven't tested water at all. There are cyclops , daphnia and other Copepoda swimming about. I added them a week ago from another established tank and looks like they are living and breeding. I think they are living off white fuzz on the wood and biofilm.
This is really just an over the top orchid planter lol
