    So that it? Only a 26W compact? How long do you have it on?
    Just double checked its a 26W 6.7K bulb, it is on for about 14 hours. I'm sure there is a little bleed over from the other tank with another 26W bulb sitting about 1" next to it.

    RSS that tank is awesome! I'm going to be setting up a tank soon. Once I find time to clean it. It's a older 55gallon I got from my aunt. As far as medium. What all are you using? How often do you water? I'm going to keep mine in my GH once I finish doing it up. Planning on fogging it and hopefully keeping it and the GH cool this time around on hot days. I'm very interested in the medium I should be using and how I keep it fresh since it is not able to be flushed like pots are. Thanks god any info.

    Your vive is looking awesome! Have any new updates??

    I'm using ADA Aquasoil as the main base and a mix of peat/sand/perlite for the hill. I mist everything but the Ceph's every 2-3 days and overhead water once a week. I try and keep the base medium about 50% flooded. I'm using good water so I've never had any noticable buildup. I have a few of these closed terrariums set-up for 5+ years and there is no noticable buildup.

    I've played around with a few foggers and while they do look nice the effort to keep them working properly is just too much for me. I've always had this nagging feeling that the fog was too much moisture for alot of the plants and may actually be harmful...Nothing to back-up that just a feeling.

    Wow that is so nice! I've thought about setting up something bigger with a bunch of plants but it really is ... frightening thinking about all the things that could go wrong. But when it goes right... oh man That ceph is just so nice!

    That filled in nicely! I love the addition on the Utric. Ever though of adding an epiphytical plant to the cork wall?

    There is one, its just growing at a snails pace...and being stingy with the leaves.
