This is the start. I still have to reseal the tank. It's a slate bottom so I'm waiting on the glass to go on the bottom. I got the wood from a dead butterfly bush (Buddleia davidii) my mom has been asking me to dig up in the back yard for a while now. I unintentionally waited so long that it just pulled right up with one hand. It still needs to be debarked and cleaned, but I think it's perfect for a low tech shrimp tank with something like this
with cfl's for lighting and a glass top.
Don't mind the black lines. That's where I marked scratches to better determine which side will be the front.
Potential plant list:
Christmas moss wall (or fissidens if I can find enough)
I'm also wanting to weave in some java fern into the moss wall so that it looks something like the other attached picture.
What do you all think? Any suggestions?
