29 gallon revamp
 
Unfortunately had to move from California over to Kentucky a few weeks ago. Movers did not follow instructions posted on my tank. Was horrible, canít really blame them though.. anyway, here is the revamp. Got some new wood and a few new plants. Broms and orchids are the same for the time being. Have a few more pleurothallis species on the way to fill in a few of the gaps on the wood, should arrive on Wednesday.

Sorry the movers didn't follow instructions, but the tank looks cool so far!

From what you can see? 2x 20mm fans and a few mist nozzles.

I won't lie, that wood looks really cool! Are you planning on having something else grow on it besides those broms?

No frogs were harmed. I donít have frogs yet.

Thanks!

I have 6 more Pleurothallis species arriving tomorrow that Iím planning on mounting to the wood, and I think 3 Vriesea as well. Thinking the 9 total will be good additions. Then with all the Peperomia in there (multiple cuttings of 3-4 species) as well as the various Microgramma cuttings that are in there; Iím hoping everything will grow in nicely. Then just need to get a plant for the background.

I really, really like the way the driftwood is slanting down together. I think it looked good even before the plants were introduced.

Please update us as it grows out!

Re: 29 gallon revamp
 
Thanks all for the replies. Will definitely keep this post updated as time progresses.

Iím currently looking into some other genus/species of orchids to fill in some of the areas that have higher light conditions that dry out quicker.

Iím still contemplating a vining plant for the background or if one is even needed. Wanting to get some more Peperomia clippings as well to place in odd cracks and crevices around existing plants. Also have a feeling that the Peperomia itself along with the moss might even fill enough of the background themselves given time and appropriate conditions.

Though it is a bit late in the build, Iím also considering finding a couple small, low light terrestrial ferns to fill in some of the negative spaces in the bottom portions of the tank.

After those portions are worked out, my assumption is that the moss currently in the tank will spread, Peperomia will do its thing and everything should fill in really well to provide plenty of hiding spots for future residents.

Hoping to have these decisions made within a couple weeks.

oops look like I posted twice on this
and made around about the same comments
sorry its just been a long and hard day

Re: 29 gallon revamp
 
No worries on the double comment.

Looking into either thumbnails or pumilio. The original hope (prior to the move) was a pair of RFB bastiís.

So itís been a couple weeks since the last additions. Iím noticing decent growth in the newer plants and some recovery from the ones that were from the previous build.

I am noticing some color changing on some leaves, not too concerned yet but I might need to reorganize.

Lastly, I had a Pleurothallis brighamii (specklina) bloom this morning.

I have a 29 gallon waiting to be utilized. What kind of lid are you using? Did you build your own?

Yeah, I am using a couple pieces of acrylic temporarily.

The tank was originally purchased with the thought of doing a planted aquarium.

There are three holes on the top.. one big one basically in the middle of the top that is roughly a third of the entire surface area of the top. I have a piece of acrylic over this at all times. The second is a smaller hole at the back of the tank. Am planning on making a screen fixture that just slips in for passive airflow/ventilation. The third is a small hole at the back corner that I am using for my fogger. Basically saying, what Iím using probably isnít going to work for you as Iím not using a standard glass aquarium.

There are some hidden gems in there as well. Things that mysteriously lost their tags that I canít provide names for. Things or thing I can only show pics of unless I find the plant agiain.. makes me want to have a monopoly honestly after watching how it chills in the shadows.

Really love your hardscape. It provides a stand for the plants on the surface and a hide for the frogs under. It keeps getting better and better.

Love the hardscape and the way the canopy is growing in. Definitely following for inspiration on my 29 gallon.

I love it! Iím actually re doing my old 7 plus year tank that has the same wood layout only itís a bow front. I love how itís coming along. How are you mounting your orchids? And what LED light fixture are you using? Thanks for sharing!

Eruantien 09-26-2019 03:14 AM

Re: 29 gallon revamp
 
I actually, completely took this tank down and used the materials to start a 36x18x36 enclosure.

The top opening of this tank sucked for getting my hands in for maintenance and such. The false bottom and tree fern panels are still in place though, so really I could just make the top opening larger and this would be much better to work with.

To answer the questions, I mount my orchids to the sticks with fishing line. Simply just make a few loops around the roots and moss to firmly anchor them against the wood. When mounting to the background I pin them in place with toothpicks.

The light is just an Aqueon fixture for planted aquariums. It worked well enough for the 29 gallon.

Thanks for the compliments and checking in guys!

Ahh! Im starting to think the same, the opening is too small.
