    i think the heater is useless for planted tank in vancouver...summer time: warm. winter time: have heating inside. and the lighting will help too...

    and this tank is only a test...to see how plants grow in low temperautre..

    3 months passed.
    ----thinks did on this tank-----
    -added black background (reduces direct sunlight, warm up the water a bit)
    -added some floating plants (water more clear)
    -added a fish (fine at 10- degree)
    -trimed two times, clean the glass once each two weeks
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    here are some pics of my emersed plant




    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    do not have a micro lens.. took by a 50mm lens and 100% crop.

    cherries are such a versatile (and under-rated) invert. I keep/breed them in unheated soft water tanks and 28c hard water set-ups.

    terrific thread! a great example of a low tech set-up.

    This is fantastic! The layout of the rocks and the proportions of the grass are excellent. I can't believe you were this successful with this setup (outside, no light, no heat etc)

    I like the look of this tank. Don't know how I missed this thread. I'll have to get a look at those rocks at one of these stores in person. I really like them. And I agree with you. With no fish, no reason to heat the water. Cherry shrimp do great in cool water.

    White clouds are good at taking some cold temps as well. And they'd do well to spread some ferts the old fashioned way

    Very nice setup.

    Your tank is amazing and coming along beautifully. Are you going to keep it in the window during the winter?
