    It would be great to see some terrarium pictures so i thought i would post one of mine from 2008 when i used to keep dart frogs.

    The tank is a juwel 180 litre vision, i still have this tank as a lowtech planted tank.

    frog-tank-sml.

    mrking-juwel180-datfrog-tank-sml.

    These images are taken at early stages of the setup unfortunately i dont have any of them a year later when everthing filled out.

    If you can see the background its made using expanding foam, silicone & coco soil very simular to my emersed lost world scape.

    6+ years later it's a low tech aquarium

    Thanks Keith :) that's good to hear.

    I'm planning a emersed version of a aquascape at the moment, cliffside edge / beach type scape using emersed plants only. Tank size is 60wx45dx30h. I will post more info about this one at a later date once I've crossed a few projects of my list lol :D

    I am doing something similar Jason. I felt bad about throwing out so many trimmings. This is the result:

    Looking good Jr :)

    I agree it's a Shame to bin the plants, what hurts more is we throw plants away that cost us money when we could be doing stuff like this.

    I took this one step further a few years back, The plants were sold a few weeks ago and this is now closed due to the personal things in life but will be back up very soon when possible.

    It would be great if you can. I have photo shopped plants then put a number on each plant that way it can be see what a plant looks like and where it can be planted.

    10/10 (y)(y) for the effort that is the perfect way to name your plants.
