||36 x 18 x 24 cm (14 x 7.1 x 9.4 in)
||246L (65 gallons)
||Background was constructed by myself using Styrofoam covered in coco fiber and sphagnum mix. to that I attached cork bark and other select pieces of driftwood.
||4xT5HO on 12 hour dawn to dusk cycle
||Eheim canister filter.
|The substrate in the lad section is made by myself using a mixture of sphagnum moss, orchid bark, charcoal, coco fiber, and peat moss. The water area substrate is flourite seachem.
The canister filter is used mainly for water circulation. Actual filtration is achieved via driplines at the top of the background which recirculate the water which in turn is filtered of excess nutrients by the plants.
At least that's my theory and so far so good :)
