green, green, green. I like the heavy use of the ferns. I now believe I have underestimated their place in the viv world.
its a shame that your soil is so deep because it looks like you've set that tank up perfectly as a plaudarium, and that water feature would look good filled up to the top and with a couple of little fishys

oh waite it looks like you did a good job siliconing and that area should be leak proof and full of water. well then that tank is perfect! i'll give you 5$ for it.

I like it. That dendrobium will do better out of the substrate. the roots will likely rot there unless its mounted to some lind of wood and I just cant see it.

How long has the ferns been in the tank? For some reason I cannot get them to grow in mine. I think it is lack of air flow. Everything else I have is doing great. Your tank does look really good though.

My colony of 85% orange Galacts are coming in next friday. Water will be going in, in a few days just letting the driftwood dry in place right now. I dont know if ill be doing any leaf litter just yet. I really like the look of the riccia. The dendrobium is in orchid bark I just added a bit of substrate over the bark.
As for the airflow im going to be adding a cpu fan and placing it in the tank today or tomorrow. Anyong have any ideas of how to power the fan?

really nice looking tank, only thing i could possibly suggest, would be to somehow make the water area look a bit more natural?? what i mean is using like cork bark rounds and silicone them in place to cover the plexi...or even brown silicone and put some rocks, or coco fiber into the silicone, maybe slant the silicone or whatever to make the drop off not soo abrupt? Anyways looks like a great tank, and im sure it will look fantastic grown in... just my two cents on the water feature tho!! Great Job!!

looks great so far, those orchids would be better off on the background or on a piece of wood off the substrate.

I love that setup! You have a real rainbow of broms in there and for the first time in my life i want to call something "Pretty" LOL Great work!

I was reading somewhere that it was best to use two 80mm fans for something the size of a 90 gal. All you really need is a 12v DC power supply. If you go through cell phones like i do or have children in the house you should have a few of these lying around. Some of them have switches on them, those are the best ones as it gives you a little control over the speed in which the fans run to suite your needs.

check around the Parts & Construction forums for better details as i am just figureing this out for a 90 gal myself and there are a lot of great ideas in there.

Again, Great viv!

Ed
