Default plant tanks > study for finales

So i planted two 20 gallon long tanks today

Enjoy!

the before


the after


Full shot tank 1


upper tank 1

Plant list
upper left facing tank is Neoregelia 'Tricolor Perfecta'
upper right facing tank is unidentified Neoregelia hybrid
and some living sphagnum moss spread around
also there is a small orchid in the hands of the skeleton Epidendrum joseph lii i believe is what its called

lower tank 1

plant list
middle brom is Neoregelia 'Angel Face'
bottom left is a species of Pilea
bottom right is Philodendron 'Truly Tiny'
the fern in the center is from some soil i grabed from my yard that i used for other plants they grow frequently and seem to do good in my vivs.
again lots of living sphagnum that will hopefully take off!


Full shot tank 2

Plant list
top left brom Neoregelia 'Royal Burgundy' x 'Fireball'
middle brom Neoregelia 'Angel Face'
two broms on right are Neoregelia 'fireball'
bottom left brom un-named Neoregelia hybrid
middle plant is a Peperomia sp. may be oblongata this is also at the bottom left front of the tank
bottom right is Syngonium podophyllum albo-variegata
bottom left in the back is a peperomia sp. not sure of what it is

also lots of living sphagnum !

upper tank 2


lower tank 2



i will add some leaf litter soon and frogs as soon as it get grown in a little
also i will be hooking up my humidifier to the tanks, just gotta get some plumbing first!

Oh my god that's either really funny or horrifying (maybe both?). Talk about dedication to the hobby.... I like the brom selections. The spotted one looks like 'mo peppa please.'

Hah! I love the skeleton! While I enjoy looking over the "natural" tanks I always get a big kick out of what I'd call a "themed viv".

Please post how these fill in!

The skeleton is freaking awesome..........ever seen the movie Romancing the Stone? Reminds me of the jungle plane wreck with the pilot skeleton hanging out the window; all covered in vines and debris :-)

That skeleton tank is super awesome! I like the clever placement of that brom in the middle... haha... Man, that's gonna look sick when it's grown in and with moss all over!
Nice work... I would've done the same if I had finals too.

Oh man Dom....thats awesome!

I've always wanted to make a viv with some type of skull in it or a golden idol from 'Radiers'.

You have to come over and build me a bone tank.

Ha, that's an awesome idea. I like the whole natural look with a twist every now and then, you definitely did a good job at it. Both thanks looks really good as a whole too. Keep us posted
