Hey, I just finished planting this 29g. Well almost. I plan on putting some selaginella and java moss down in the bottom close to the water feature. The background is cork, and the ledge is foam covered with weldbond/ecoearth. Coming out of the driftwood is a fountain and the ledge is a dripwall. I have a silver dollar fern(Adiantum peruvianum), jewel orchid(Macodes petola), fire fern(Oxalis hedysaroides 'Rubra'), Neo. fiesta brom, Tillandsia concolor, 2 dischidia sp., Ficus pumilia, and several varieties of cryptanthus. How does it look?

It looks good, Matt! I like the Oxalis, and I'm hopeful it will perk up a bit. Don't worry too much about the Macodes drooping a bit . . . it dislikes being disturbed (shipped), and will probably take a few months to snap out of it.

The design is great, and I wish you the best of luck with getting the plants to grow. However, with the plants you have, you shouldn't require too much luck.

very nice. It is almost hard to believe that is only a 29 gallon tank. It looks bigger with all those stuff in there.

Waoo I like it :wink: Congratulations, it's a very good job! :wink:

:idea: Why not to add few dry leaves? (oak leaves for exemple)

I will want to see a pic of this tank in few monthes when ficus pumila will be luxuriant :lol:

Thanks Homer. Yes, I will be waiting for both the oxalis and the adiantum to perk up. I love the adiantum byt the way. The bright green fronds on glossy black stems are wonderful. I will also be waiting on my brom to get color back into it. It has already started darkening in the last few days. 130 watts does the trick I guess.

I put leaf little in another tank of mine and I am not that impressed. The poop just dries on the leaves and cakes up instead of soakinginto the substrate. PLus, I like the chocolate brown of the substrate against the foliage of the plants.

I am looking forward to the fig taking off too.

Thanks,

Very nice indeed. When the ficus pumila gets going it will really fill in the back wall.I pull out handfuls from my bicolors viv about every month.
What do you plan on putting in it?

Matt,
it looks great :shock:

im very interested in your setup, as i am about to set up a 29. what lights are you using? i have 130w coralife fixture with dual 65w 50/50 bulbs that i was planning on using. i will change them out with just 10k when i have to change them.

what kind of pump is running your water feature?


What do you plan on putting in it?
