WendyKL OK - thanks!

keepsmiling Ok, I measured and it is 2.5 inches.

WendyKL That would be great!

keepsmiling Ok..I can measure if that helps.

WendyKL It would be good to know how many inches are left at the top. I imagine the plants grow better without something blocking the light.

They really are beautiful, and I love the small décor you have inside, is that vintage as well?


Oh, and as for the tank covers, I'm not sure if it would work with tanks like this, but it definitely does with regular black-rimmed tanks:

Thank you. Yes, the two in the tank on the left, the riparium tank, are vintage. The mermaid is from occupied Japan, the small seahorse is from the 50's- 60's.The spikey seahorse is not vintage.

Thank you. I am too old and have too full of a house to set up for breeding.

I can tell you that the plants on top came from various sources. Plants like the pink polka dot and aluminum plant can be found sometimes at grocery stores or home improvement stores. The planters came from a Riparium supply site. He also sells plants and planters for inside the tank. You should be able to google them. Links are not allowed here as far as I know.

keepsmiling Well you see the riparium tank has several inches.{I can measure if you need} The other tank I do cover at night with eggcrate. Most tanks do run near the surface, and it is best to cover them or risk jumping. I have oddly never had one jump in the daytime{knock on wood} only at night.
You can cover it with a reptile cover, make one from eggcrate, or bridal veil.
