This will be the up graded home for my 4 leucs. Let me know what you think. I'm ordering lighting this week and then I will finish planting.

Just a piece of cork, the pump is buried in the corner opposite the wet wall. I plan on using mostly epiphytes mounted to the cork and a few marginal/bog plants so I don't have to worry about the root staying wet.

Got the making's of a really nice tank. One thing I'd reconsider is the depth of your water feature. As many here would point out, pdfs are not the best swimmers.

I didn't want to use a glass divider for astetic (sp?) reason, up close I think this looks better. As for the LECA its not that heavy suprisingly enough, I moved it from my basement work room to my upstairs dining room with no problems, and cost wise I bought a 50L bag for about $40 and I haven't used more than a quarter of it. The water depth I'm still playing with. I plan on adding some sort of aquatic ground cover along with some emergent plants. Also the end of the ghost wood take up a large section of the water area and brakes the surface the whole way. Broms are coming, I just waiting on funds to be approved by the wife so I can put my order in to AH Supply. As soon as those come in I plan on putting in a couple large broms, some selaginella, and a button fern. Once its matured I hope to almost the entire back wall covered in plants.

tank

what is the substrate in the water section that makes it so murky?

My guess is its from the leca, that didn't get rinsed off very well.
