Started out as a tank for carnivours plants, evolved into a American snapping turtle holding tank, and then into its current morph; a Wyoming native bog-like tank.
The tank is a 20gal long Turtle-tank made by Zilla; tank is only about 1/4 full of water
AquaClear AC30 HOB
filter, and Whisper internal filter
Aqueon strip light w/ standard aquarium bulb and an Aqueon twin tube strip light w/ one standard aquarium bulb and one Floraxam plant bulb
Top: standard Zilla center-hinged screen top
The tank was scaped using GE type II 100% silicone and river rock, it also contains a single piece of unknown (but most likely cottonwood) driftwood
standard aquarium gravel
peat moss and sand mixture
crayfish (possibly Orconectes virilis
), damselfly nymphs, dragonfly nymphs, freshwater mussels, mayfly nymphs, planaria, scuds, snails, and stonefly nymphs
Fish, most likely some type of shiner (possibly sand shiners)
Equisetum, Forget-Me-Nots Mint and native sedge
moss, native fern, and a orchid
To create the scape, I simply siliconed river rock into position, then filled in behind with the peat moss and sand mixture. I made no attempt to create a water-tight barrier, as I figured on working with hydrophytes.
Since everyone likes photos (and that is the point of this thread), here are a few of my favorite shots, and a current FTS.
