Default MDG Raffle Tank Construction Jrnl - 56K beware

So this is the tank I will be raffling off and the MDG meeting I will be hosting on Feb. 11th. It is a 10 gallon vert and this is the construction journal.


False bottom somewhat made and treefern panel siliconed in.






Water feature finished and cork panels up. I siliconed in many many rocks to make it and I used brown silicone.


Cork log attached with brown silicone


Front pane of glass attached on with acrylic hinges




Things for holding the door shut tightly. I dont know what they are I got them from my dads house.


Fully planted and ready to grow in alittle before the meeting.












Hope you enjoy

Do you know what the "palmy" plant is in the front left?

Looks like Neanthe bella. You can find them at Wal-mart or a nursery.

It is a Balla Palm. They grow to around 4'+. They are not good viv. plant.

I disagree. They are a great viv plant. I have had one in my Tinc tank for almost 2 years now and its only grown 2-3 inches. Alot of plants outgrow vivs. You have to keep them under control and prune.

I agree, my plant book says they do well in Vivariums. I have one in my bathroom that stays warm and humid and it does fine. The only thing it doesn't get a lot of is light, and it's about a foot tall. I would think under vivarium conditions it would grow more rapidly, therefore i would only suggest it for larger vivaria, and pruning will probably be necessary even there.

I've had them in my 75 at different times and it's always out grown the tank pretty quickly. I don't like pruning them because I think they look bad.

I have never pruned the one in my 30 gallon tinc tank and its been in there for almost 2 years. It still has alot of room before it hits the ceiling.

I wonder if there are different palm species that look very similar when small, but have different growth habits?
