    Riparium Bonsai

    Here's the tank in a temporary spot. As soon as I can get power to it I'm going to move it out of this corner to another wall. I thought that the planting could be a bit more full, so I added a Cyperus umbrella sedge in one more planter to the right of the cypress tree. The bonsai tree looks...

    56G Sarawak Blackwater Riparium

    A 56 is real good for this kind of thing. The 65 Tall (45 X 60 X 90) is also a nice size & shape. The plants are all planted in riparium planters and trellis rafts.

    Thanks again!

    56G Sarawak Blackwater Riparium

    Thanks so much. Yes I really like that contrast too. I was impressed with how the LED lit up the water area and enhanced that mahogany color. Yes there are just a couple of little sponge filters in there and I do partial water changes a couple of times a week. This seems to be plenty. There...

    56G Sarawak Blackwater Riparium

    I cleaned the tank tonight and here are some update photos. The PAR 38 is really great with the stained water. The Betta schalleri are still very shy and I don't know if I'll ever get a good shot with fish in it. The plants look good. Another nice thing about these socket LEDs is that...

    Thanks BigTom! The leather fern is a real nice riparium plant. I hope to have another article in there next spring.

    Thanks so much for these tips you guys. I have a hard time trying to keep up with breeding projects, but maybe I will give a shot with these fish. They do look like really healthy specimens.

    Mangrove Forest - 245L Brackish Riparium

    This tank is featured in a new article from the latest issue of AMAZONAS Magazine. Please check it out if you can. Can you get AMAZONAS in the UK? I tried to include some good information on growing the mangrove trees in a riparium setup. The pictures turned out pretty good.

    These Betta schalleri have colored up so nice now that the magnolia leaves have stained the water some more. I got to try to get some pictures of them, but the flash on my camera has died, so I need to borrow. Here's a link to a shot that looks just like my fish are looking now...

    The fish have colored up nice and they are a lot less shy now. I gotta try to get some pictures of them.

    £2.00 per Litre? So you just filled this tank with petrol?

    I got a better picture of the Iguanura tenuis palm. I wish that I could find regular commercial availability for this plant, but ii is just rare and hard-to-find. It sure grows nice. Since it's a palm there is no easy way to propagate it either.
