    L shaped tank with diagonal front panel

    I would assume you can do it by filling the gap with silicone as you would a normal tank. All three of those panes would be pushing out from the water pressure so it should force a tighter seal if anything. 20cm tall, I wouldn't put to much thought into it :)

    Bucephalandra family experts? (Emersed growth)

    The biggest problem you will have is fungal growth. You can periodically flood and drain to halt it. Extremely easy to keep this way. Don't require additional light other than ambient room light and i misted every 6-8 weeks. They don't enjoy constantly wet leaves when emersed. Soil can be damp...

    ID, likely mimulus

    This plant came from my mother's pond. It contains natives and mimulus luteus which self seeds all over the place. Any ideas? Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    British mosses

    The common 'Fissidens' and riccardia can be found growing in the UK too :) Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    British mosses

    I had a phase of chucking any moss I found in a tank. More grew than not but most looked like stringy moss Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    Natural habitat Videos. :)

    The orange is very obvious emersed but I imagine people complained about the red from tropica. Quite underwhelming Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    Cryptocoryne ferruginea

    Cool find :) Mine has taken around a year to grow back from a bare rhizome to a bare rhizome with some tiny shoots. Something not to its liking

    Red Crypts

    Turns out mine is largely mush at the moment with a few new green shoots :(

    I was readin something the other day about temperatures above 60 removing cyanide some how. Do you know much about this at all? If so then a quick boil wold do the trick perhaps?

    Window sill emersed glass mini tank! (310 x 200 x 170 mm)

    Can we get a crypt list? :)

    Wanna be Borneo Biotope

    'Java fern' is correct for a borneo biotope. A lot of cultivars we have are also found there naturally rather than being man made

    Microsorum pteropus 'Minor'

    Is that not 'green gnome' from dennerle looking at the way it's grown?

    50l borneo cube

    Very very very slowly I imagine :D Toying with the idea of a buce carpet but that would detract from the natural feel I think

    50l borneo cube

    Sorry I'm late :) Lighting is the standard 5050 led that came with the tank. Quite dim but I don't need bright light's for this one. Fish are likely going to be bororas merah if I find them
