300L (79 gallons)
Backgroungd in water: polystyrene board made as bark texture .

Additional Information
flowing water in the tank do supply enough moisture for 90 percent of the plants above water(either flowing under the substrates or drops by drops by small pipe) I only use Ada water-plants fertilizer,so there do not have any Algae problems for more than have a year. Only a several plants need extra care for watering. Because I use the inner border of the tank ( just at water level)to keep plants above water ,there is shadow at behind in the tank ,I have to put water plants need little light at back.But look down from the top, it have a lake side-feel. co2 system with bubbles 5-7/sec
