Thanks, I had three 5" pieces of the moss left over so I put the moss the driftwood i have on the back ground. I hope it grows... I never used moss on dritwood like this before. I asked blackjungle (where I got the moss) how to do it, but its the weekend so i have to wait for a day or so for a reply, lol.

You really did a nice job. Your imi's will love it. I'll also have to get that "Amazon frogbit." I don't suppose they gave you a scientific name for it? I've found that most of my frogs will utilize the ponds more when they have floating leaves to sit upon. In my paludarium, the plants with floating leaves are all rather too big for smaller ponds.

Hey, sorry about that. I thought that was the name of the plant under where you said that.
I might have to get some of that for my next viv.

Curt.

Limnobium laevigatum grows very quickly, and is classified in some areas as an invasive noxious weed (much like water hyacinth). Be sure to check your local laws before you buy.

wow RC, that is a great design. I especially like the built in side view of the water hole. How exactly did you seal that section off from the rest of the floral floor without having an ugly side view of dried pink great stuff? I would love to try and replicate the feat on a horizontal ten gallon tank I am creating.

Awesome work!

lol, btw its fleshatombs' tank, lol, i some how logged into my old sn without knowing. i had forgotten my old password, and my old e-mail had been hacked so i couldnt recover it. lol, maybe i was sleep walking?

any ways, in my first post i had a link to my photo album with some journal like photos of the construction. the pink great stuff your refering to, i think your meaning the hydrtoton, little clay pellets. I just found that drift wood in a local aquarium shop and cut it with a miter (sp?) saw the way i needed it, and just siliconed it into place to keep it from moving. I had first planned on using slate rock, but the wood looked better.

right now im having alittle problem with patch of moss to the right of the pond, its dying for some reason, but the rest of the moss seems to be adjusting to the tank. weird. and i got a new brighter light. really lights it up much better.

thanks for the compliments
