I have a start on a new display. I don't have the tank in place yet, but I think I have a clear vision in mind. This new one will go into a 60-litre rimless tank (60cm wide X 30cm tall X 30cm deep). I have not tried a riparium in such a small enclosure before, but I have a good plan in mind for plant selection and other important points. I had a lot of fun with my latest layout (now dismantled) and I intend to use certain elements of that setup for this new project. Here's a shot from that 200-litre riparium. I have that one journaled in this thread... New Riparium Setup in 50-gallon Tank Here are some features that characterize that design pretty well: A tank filled with water to about 2/3 of total depth Relatively bright lighting Erect, tidy, "grassy" background plant (Cyperus) that throws relatively little shade Fine-leaved sprawling stem plants (Bacopa, Limnophila, and others) growing on trellis rafts and forming dense floating carpet Underwater scape lacking plants, but with an artistically-rendered stone layout Relatively large and showy fish A striking centerpiece plant (Cyrtosperma) My new project in the 60cm tank will use some of the same elements, with a few important variations. I hope to adapt a general Nature Aquarium design concept for this riparium planting. I list here some elements that will support this idea: Emersed plants with relatively fine foliage Emersed plants having mainly subdued, green foliage, as opposed to leaf variegation or bright coloration A well-rendered underwater hardscape lacking plants or having just a few bright green plants A group or two of small, tightly-shoaling fish No conspicuous centerpiece plants or fish With another post or two I will explain more specific ideas for hardware, scaping, plant selection and fish stocking. I would be interested to hear any ideas that you might have.
