Default The Burnt Stump

A number of years ago I found a large burnt stump piece of driftwood. I kept it in the flowerbed in hopes of using it once I garner the energy to construct a tank large enough for it to go in. I ended up finally getting a 90-gallon tank from a friend who was using it for saltwater fish.

After cleaning:


Construction materials:


Plants were all from local nurseries


Used the rope/silicone/coco fiber method to create some vines. Really liked the technique and how the vines turned out. Hopefully they hold up.


Full tank shot, freshly planted


Close up of burnt stump


I installed a misting system within the tank using access in the corner. No drilling needed.


Some specs:
-Background is great stuff/silicone/tree fern and coco
-Tank is self draining once water gets to a certain level it travels through a tube into a bucket below the tank, within the stand
-Light is a high output T5. Very impressed with initial growth
-Custom lid with glass cut from Lowe's and siliconed piano hinges. Very simple, cheap, and efficient.
-No fan, but I did modify a Mag-Float by siliconing the scrubbing side. Works ok.


Likely will house 3 or 4 Bakuis tincs.
Thanks for looking!

I was just told about this and had to search it out. To quote someone else..."It's Badass!". Love it!

Your beautiful viv and Grimm's joke, just ended the evening very well! Got that nasty taste out of my mouth after reading the horrible train wreck of a thread about the vent colony setup.

Thanks for sharing. Perfect stump well done! I'd love to find something like that for a 65g hex I hope to be working on later this year.

Thumbs up Re: The Burnt Stump

Thanks for the replies! Growing in nicely right now and I'm working the kinks out. Should get 4 Bakhuis into it in the next few months. Updates coming.

Here's an update after some growth. The creeping fig is taking off, as is the aluminum plant.

Gorgeous, simply gorgeous. That's all that needs to be said.

BUT, I'll say more. I truly love the tank and the stump fits perfectly! The plants look superb as well. Keep us updated on the bakhuis group too, I would really like hear how they like the tank.

It looks like he put some Leucs in there.

Phenomenal tank, making me reconsider my build idea for a 40g I have been planning!

Great terrarium! Did you drill a hole through the bottom of it for your drainage tube?

Default Re: The Burnt Stump - Updates March 2014

Here's some updated shots of the tank. A few plants have been added/taken away, but not much has changed besides growth. Added some jungle pods to give the tank a little standing water. I moved the leucs out and added 0.0.5 Bakhuis tincs. They are still small and pretty shy, although one with SLS is pretty bold and still hanging on.

Full tank shot

Thanks for looking

And to answer a few question I missed from earlier posts the stump wasn't treated before going in the tank. I think that turned out well as it had a colony of springtails on it that I didn't know about. And I haven't considered moss for the stump, as I wanted to keep most of it moss free to accent the burnt part of it.
