Default My Latest: Exo 12x12x18 Cloud Forrest-esqe

Hi All,

I thought I would share an image of my most recent tank. I built it in early June and its now about 2 months old. Its a plant only tank with the following :

Bromeliads:

2 Neoregelia "Tiger Cub"
1 Neoregelia "Fireball"
1 Syngonium vine NOID

Terrestrials:

1 Maranta leuconeura
1 Philodendron "Pin Cushion"
1 Peperomia percillata
1 Solanum sp. "Ecuador"

Orchids:

1 Dracula dodsonii
1 Lepanthes telipogoniflora
1 Masdevallia constricta
1 Trisetella hoeijeri

Its hooked up to a Mistking value system with my other tank. I am using a Fluval Plant 3.0 Nano for lighting. It also has 2 40mm AC Infinity fans for internal air circulation.

How do you like the light? I'm considering one for a new 16x16x20 hex tank I am setting up.

The light is doing great! Here it is 2 months after the last pic


Will have to trim the vines and the Masdevallia and Dracula are in spike. The colors on the broms have deepened.

I have an other Nano on a smaller tank with mini orchids and they are doing awesome too.

I'm always impressed/jealous of how people can fit so much in a 12x12x18 without making it look too cluttered. My viv looks too empty now...

Do you know what you are going to put in this? Pair of thumbs?

Looks good, I like what you did with the driftwood in the front center!

Thank you all.

It will be just for plants (aside for the springtails in residence). I am all about the plants. I just love the approach that the PDF community has to setting up terrariums and enclosures. The natuarlistic approach opposed to an orchid in a pot, in a fish tank, on a chunk of egg crate. Too sterile for me.

The pincushion is great. Its grown well but isn't taking over or running wild.

It hasn't grown tall, at least yet. Its about 5 inches tall about 4 inches wide. Depending on the size of your tank I'd say fore to mid ground plant.
