I just started planting my 75 gallon stream tank about 2 weeks ago and took some pics. More plants are going to be added soon, but this is the start.





Sorry about the size on the first picture

The cork is from ACE hardware, used for bulletin boards. It is made by Boone and the 4 pack of 12"x12" tiles runs around $7 (I think)
I have added a few more plants (not near enough), 6 hidden film canisters and added a trio of pumilio.

Do the adhesives stick well over time? It's something I've wanted to play with for some time. I'd just worry about it coming off the glass from humidity.

I silicone them on. I don't trust the little sticky pads they have with them.
I have see some sort of bug eat away at the tiles, but it just adds a new texture for me. They don't like being submerged, but seem to hold up to the humid air all right.

Nice terrarium Ben, it will look great once it matures. I used the cork tiles in a terrarium housing a golden mantella years ago. They held up well for a while but over time they started to fall apart and eventually fell off. I don't remember if I used silicone sealant to attach them to the glass or just relied on the adhesive that comes with them. Keep us updated on how yours do,
