    hello. thanks for all the replys [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] .

    Kirkscoastalcarnivores- i cant remember unless i check the pots (i wrote the lables on the pots). the hour after i took the photos, i planted some more seeds and the tank is now fuller than it is now. i can remeber some, like indica pink flower, montana, burmanii, capensis, sessilifolia, brevio-something and some other cool droseras. so far, the capensis and diesliana has germinated.

    JustLikeAPill- ive bought the ultrasonic misters at petsmart. most of the stores dont have it in stock, but its usually found in the reptile section. you can also try specialty stores; for instance, theres this guy at a agricultral fair that sells misters for cheap every year around my place.

    i dont think the ultrasonic humidifyer lowers the temp at all. it only showers the plants with fog that is at the same temp of the water it sits in. it also heats up the water a little. thats why i use the evaporative humidifyer. the evap humidifyer blows a lot of humidifyed air out, which is directed by the white tube into the tank. the tube output of air blows right over the ultrasonic humidifyer so that the water it splashes up hits my plants. the air that blows over the plants evaporate the water on the leaves and therefor offer cooling. other than that, the main cooling is the fact that its in my basement, which is at a constant 22-24 degrees. the setup lowers it to about 18-20 degrees.

    amazingly, i found that sphagnum gets colder than peat. the pots in which i planted my inermis in is 18C while the peat perlite mixture where i have my heli is at 20C. im measureing the core temperature, not the surface temp. i dont know if this is true or just an illusion [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Spectabilis73-oops, i knew the name but i forgot to put it on [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . i believe its a common hatchetfish.

    Capslock-yeah, i head of all the stories on how the hatchet fishes average life expectacy is about one year because it usually surcumbs to drieing up. but i have my tank covered with a light and a piece of plastic at the back [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] .

    when i was buying it at the petstore, the guy was trying to fish one out for me. suddenly, you see a wave of silver jumping out of the tank and falling onto the ground [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] . some little girl freaked out and almost stepped on a few.

    see through fish are the best [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . i hope to keep glassfish someday, but they need brackish water, which im not prepared to keep now. i kept them before, but that was when i was inexperianced and bought the dyed ones.....

    TheAlphaWolf- ah, the things we do for cps [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] .

    thanks for all other complements [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . Zongyi

    Beautiful stuff Zongyi, the pics aren't as bad as you make them sound [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Thanks for posting them, I had wondered what your set-up was/is like and the pics explain it well....
