    Hi,

    I just want to share my small 1 Gal Cube tank. All plants used here are emmersed form. Water level shall be at the level just above the carpet glosso.

    Filtration is air driven UGF thatl becomes the source of water from the falls.

    Final setup for this tank will be half emmersed and half submerged.

    Substrates. Black pebbles, Fine Black Sand and Basaltic Soil.

    Flora : All emmersed form : Lymnophila Aromatica, Ludwidgia Inclinata, Ludwigia Repens, HC, Glosso, Rotala Rotundifolia, Wild Fern in HC Patch

    Hardscapes: Natural River Stones, DW out of GreenDust Ornamental Plant

    Nice job!

    I like this concept. Well executed.

    Will the plants not begin to melt now that they are under water with differing levels of CO2?

    Thanks for the appreciation guys, Rodney, I will support the setup with liquid CO2 for HC. The rest of the plants will adjust soon.

    My friend ask me to tie plant on the DW. I used a hanging local plant called "Buhok ni Maria". I hope it will complement the scape.

    Thanks Keith and Flo,

    Yup, I will add our local dwarf shrimps here where I got the natural river stones. I'll just let the plants settle first before adding the faunas:

    I wish that I lived in the Phillipines so that I could just go out side and grab some local Fresh water shrimps to put in my tank. You are so lucky and your tank is enchanting! Nicely done and I like the concept. The only tiny nit pick would be to hide the black pour spout tube and try your best to put the hose deep in the corner of the tank. Other then that- I am astonished at your skill and talent.---R
