I finally got the tanks about 80-90% planted. I still have a couple of bromeliads and slow growing philodendrons I will probably put in to give the background some better cover. I also will be adding another half dozen or so miniature orchids when an order comes in from Ecuagenera.

It's cool to see the visual difference just from getting the wood and background wet. Looks much more alive even with minimal plant growth.

It's coming along.

I'm going to make a batch of calcium clay substrate to add on top of the minimal layer of turface that I currently have. And of course copious leaf litter.

I'm open to all suggestions on possible inhabitants in a month or two! I'm thinking either some Ranitomeya that do well in groups or maybe some locale of pumilio - or some of each. If I come into some inheritance or a winning lottery ticket maybe even a large obligate.
