Thanks for the info - I will keep that in mind should I decide to try this someday.

The tank is coming along so beautifully, Alex. I love the way you aquascaped - with the plants on one side. It's quite artistic, I think. Beautiful overall effect! Great job...

This is a great idea! I think I am going to try it for my red ear slider's tank so it looks more showy!

UPDATES: Added Sweetflag grass to planters :) Also a few White Clouds (fish). Had to remove my female betta :( She started attacking one of my poor cories. This was the 2nd time it happened. Last time I left her in hoping she wouldnt do it again but she did. His poor fins were tattered. It's been a few weeks and he's made a full recovery luckily.

That's so cool. :D
Haha
My female betta is not good with tank mates, she thinks they are food or she will keep them in their place by pestering them.
I think it's partly out of curiosity though,
haha

Your tank looks beautiful already. I like the look of live plants, but use fake plants since I don't have to worry about silk leaves dying like my house plants would do. How do you keep the leaves that full and green? I can't keep any plants alive that well to save my life. XD

I just use hardy low light plants for the aquatic section and hardy bog type houseplants for the emmersed section. Light is on for 8 hrs a day. Add 2 drops of fertilizer every other day (its super concentrated - 8 drops a day can treat 50 gallons).
