    Default New setup

    I've been thinking about building a densely planted tank for a while now and I had an exo-terra tank standing in my greenhouse doing nothing at all...so thought I'ld give it a shot.
    I'll post some pictures now and then showing progress as I'm not very satisfied how it looks right now...I'm waiting to bring in some more liana's where I can put some Neoregelia's on.
    Maybe I should place some fernplates against the sideglass to.

    Dimensions are: 60cm high 60cm width and 45cm deep.

    My major interest in flora are ferns, so I used some of them.

    Ferns used:

    - Cheilanthes pilosa
    - Hemionitis palmata
    - Microgramma lycopodioides
    - Pyrrosia lanceolata
    - Pyrrosia nummulariifolia

    The backside is fernplate with some Vesicularia dubyana (Javamoss)

    I have Neoregelia lilliputiana, Neoregelia ampullacea, Begonia schultzei waiting to be put in.






    Greetings

    (apparently imageshack flips vertical pictures back horizontaly...you guys will have to turn your heads a bit )

    Looking good Kenny . Neoregelia's would certainly bring in some colour. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks

    Today I changed/added some things a bit... Now I just have to wait for the Neoregelia's and the Begonia to be inserted. I think that will do for now.

    in the meanwhile there's Ranitomeya imitator 'Chazuta' breeding in it..found some larvae in the Bromelia's, plants are doing good.
