Default 30gal tall project nearly finished! *pic heavy*

Hey all!

We've been working on a 30 gallon tall viv for a month or so now, me and the OH tried out our first foam background and all that jazz :lol:
so anyhoo, with a few changes here and there through the pics, here it is up till now, still not quite done but almost :wink:
Let me know what you think guys!
Cheers
Lotte***

Wow that looks fantastic! Is most of the bottom really a pool or is it just my perspective? The plants also look good for being freshly planted... are they from another tank or did you just buy them?

That looks awesome!
The background turned out great and I love the lil built in ramp/cave

I was also wondering about drainage?

Cheers chaps 8)

Drainage is a nice layer of leca, weed matting then coir substrate. There's no pool, not sure how it looked that way
As for the plants, the mosses and bracket fungus were collected and put in over a month ago now so plenty of time to settle, the broms i got as Nidularium fireball, I've used them many times at work, they come as a great sized basket with 3 original plants, 6 almost matured daughter plants, which were all pupping too!!! outrageous lol
The Cryptanthus bivittatus "novistar" was from Dartfrog.co.uk, great quality little things too and coloured up great now under the bright light :mrgreen:
I've still got some Ficus, some stuff that i thought was Bacopa monnieri, but was labelled as Helexina... predictably a made up name if google knows anything... and a spot of Selaginella

8) Thanks!
