Default Viv Update

Good morning to everybody,

After a month and a half since the assembly of Viv:

https://www.dendroboard.com/forum/ne...one-spain.html
https://www.dendroboard.com/forum/ne...ct-update.html

I have to say that everything is working very well.
I have already reduced the rain and the moss has taken root very well, I just have to wait for it to adapt and keep growing to occupy all the bottom.

Orchids and broms have been little more than two weeks and also seem to be going great.

I only have to wait until I get a few ferns and "climbers" to finish the decoration.

Thanks for watching!!!

Looks really promising. Are you planning on keeping animals in there? If yes I'd be a bit worried about the heater behind the tank and the fact that most of the sides are open, which could make animals feel stressed because they feel out in the open.

If not, absolutely marvelous tank

Thank you very much for your words! I really appreciate it!

On animals, it depends a lot on how the tank evolves and the health of the plants, my free time to give them the care they need, etc.
That radiator is always off, it would only be used in case the room temperature drops too much.
I have to receive some plants (especially ferns) and plant them on the sides so that the possible inhabitants feel a little more protected and safe.

But as I say, until the end of the year maybe next year, I have no plans to introduce the animals.

Thanks again!

That is a lovely tank! I'm quite in awe of the wood that you used.

Thank you!

They are pretty mangrove woods pieces, yes. I have been very lucky to find it. They are three pieces in total, glued with cyanoacrylate + bicarbonate + cigarette nozzles.

In the store I had a good time looking for the ideal design. The seller was a little fed up with me ...

Wow, thank you very much. That is one of the best compliments to me. Justin Grimm is for me as Takashi Amano, for aquarium hardscape lovers.
I am proud of the result for now but I know that I need a lot to reach his level, I put effort into my work but I lack all his talent.
