    I planted a small Ceph division in one of the larger seed starting sponges and it fitted perfectly into a pot type I had so I included a few of them into this setup. I removed a lot of the moss cap before taking the photo it was a lot more of a muffin top. Its spring so I'm cleaning/moving stuff so this one if out of this tank now. The interesting part for me is that it started to grow roots down into the water, only 1/4-1/2" or so but that is something.

    Sketchup, just the first free version I found that did enough for me. May be better ones out there.

    Today we torn it down and reorganized everything to allow this guy more room in there. He was cramped up against the back wall and is now in the middle. I really need to build my lowland setup already....time is running out.

    Lots of babies have moved in and out, most recent would be some Sophronitis coccinea plantlets to harden up for a bit.

    Flood/Drain is working great, just wish I had built an overflow into it. Things get really ugly if you forget the pump is on and all that bark medium starts to float .

    I'd love another 2-3 of these, maybe someday.
