    To suspend plant in your fishtank you could take some chicken wire and and stretch across the bottom of your hood. Then just attach the plant to it. It also wouldn't interfere with getting to the plant underneath them. Could make it diffacult to get to the light though.

    I use super-strong suction cups with little hooks on them to hang my plants from the side of the tank. I've also used the little wire "shower shelves" that attach with suction cups..

    Well, I think I've figured out how to post a picture, it sure is alot of work though LOL. This seems a good place to test if I've got it right. Sorry in advance if it doesn't work or if its too big or too small (details, details, details LOL)

    Well, with any luck, heres one of my tank; soon to be under construction again, but working well so far.



    Ok, so I HAVEN'T figured it out. Will try again later LOL


    One more time?



    This might be better cause I'm not blocking the view [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Wow...cool terrariums guys! I'm still working on finding a way to post pics. Once I do I'll post my new terrarium. The last one I put up pics of is gone, I've gone bigger! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks CCRider!
    I think you were mentioning my tank when you asked about the greenwater and the plants glued to the back so here goes:

    The greenwater is actually some form of duckweed, a tiny two leaved floating plant with a few roots which dangle down underwater. I accidentally introduced some from one of my killifish tanks by using the same turkey baster to suck up water and water the epiphytes (plants attached to the back wall) and now I'm stuck with it til I take the tank ouside and flush it out with a hose. One 1/8" dukweed plant can become the "carpet" you see above in only a couple months! A real pest plant so never introduce it to your tanks water unless you like the look of carpeted water. It grows especially fast in peaty acid water as you find in a CP (or killifish) terrarium!

    The plants hanging on the back wall in my 75 gallon tank are affixed to a background of green colored 1" thick cocofiber panels (you can get it at reptile/terrarium or orchid shops). The tilandsia, unknown orchids and ant plants really like climbing through this mat. I attach them by digging into the panel putting the plants in the hole/indentation and then I take two wooden toothpicks in the shape of an "X" over the bottom 1/3 or so of the plant or plant roots. Then water with either a turkeybaster (to get into the hole you made in the panel) and mist with a mister whenever you think of it. So long as the tank is nearly sealed you will have plenty of humidity to keep them happy between waterings I almost never fertilize them and they grow/bloom just fine. The toothpick method holds them securely in place and the toothpicks may be removed in 2-6 months depending upon how quickly the plants take root into it. Orchids seem to take the longest and I have one which hasn't taken a good enough hold for toothpick removal even after 1 year!

    Hope that helps! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
