Growing-in. No background yet. You can see the Asian river-otter holding- pens in the service area behind the tank. Most of the plants are courtesy of the Albany Aquarium (very fine establishment; they actually quarantine their new animals). The Microsorium is from Tom Barr. The Amano substrate was donated by ADG. Thank you all for your contributions.

A member of my club is a volunteer at the MBA. I think he joined specifically to gain knowledge in FW planted aquaria to pass along to the MBA staff in preparation for these new exhibits. He mentioned that they (the MBA) were ordering pallet loads of ADA AquaSoil for the new tanks.

He's also the one who arranged the MBA tour for last year's AGA convention.

ADG donated a pallet full of ADA 'Malaya' and 'power sand' for this exhibit. The rosette plants clearly benefit from the ADA soil as compared to the previous substrate that was used in the practice tank. Leon is our volunteer extrordinaire here at MBA. Tom Barr has consulted with us about the planted exhibits and has graciously supplied some of his extra plants. If you can't see the Otter holding pens in the background then you're not looking closely enough- the pens are black Sharpies.

Jay-

Jay- Yes it was, but it's since been moved and improved into the exhibit space. The tank in the picture that you have is now bare, and the new larger tank is in the exhibit space (the picture at the beginning of this thread).
