Okay okay I know I already started the journal of my 45 column but since I have yet to get it broke down and the fish moved I started the build on my bow that I have had sitting around forever now...

This was actually a mistake on my part as I saw the post about frog day(which im going still!!!!) and I thought the thing was in march( clearly not) do I quickly ran to the store to get my supplies to start building the tank so I could get some frogs when I got up there...

so here is where im at as of last night:

The tank


Some stuff that I gathered to play with...lace rock, mopani and malaysia wood and peat pots


The false bottom uncovered and then covered



Just a crappy mock up of how I would like the hardscape to look like (pots replaced with pvc pipe in gs to give more support)


And yes I will be having a small water feature in this tank.

I ordered the glass top for the tank...it will be in Friday

GS will be sprayed tomorrow.

Thanks for looking!

The brom pup looks a bit too small to separate but I'm not that experienced a plant keeper. I think I read you're supposed to wait till it's about 1/3 the size of the mother plant and has a stolon (or whatever you call the wood base) before separating it.
Nice find on the orchid but it looks like it might outgrow your tank. Again, I'm no expert.
As for the lemon fern, that's on you =) If you like it, keep it. If not, move it. I think it's fine as is but would also work off-center in one of the corners.

Well I don't think im adding the orchid. Lemon fern was moved, and I took the pup off the mother and put it in the tank anyway....only spent a buck on that brom and if I kill this one....i got a few more pups coming up.....

Well I got my plants today! Thanks to Www.alphaprobreeders.com!

This is what I got!













Can I split the larger pup off this one now?


Here is everything in the tank right now minus the african hosta


Don't know that I like the floral pic mushrooms in here just yet...but ill wait and see

and here is the tank after a misting....it must be real humid because I did the mist about 5 hours ago...so I must be doing something right!


Thanks for looking!
