I've been toying around with the plants and such while the water sits to see if there are any leaks. I think I've got the perfect arrangement planned out. Since we are switching from 50/50 to 60/40 there isn't enough room on the water side for the tree trunk fixture so I'm going to put that in the middle of the land side. There will be ivy and some river rocks along the edge of the land to cut back on mess in the water, a line of pothos along the back and ficus in the far back corner and front corner. I'll also put some ivy and pothos around the tree trunk. No doubt now about hiding spots and privacy. Plus they will have the tree trunk to climb and hop on.
I can't wait to get it all set up and take a picture to show you all for feedback!
:I let the rock soak in the sink over night and there is still this muddy like stuff coming off of it. I have a toothbrush that I use to scrub things off and when I used it on the rock it got a muddy foam on it. I think it's sand stone.
:I put so much sealant around the divider that there is no chance of leaks HA HA but I will test it with water fist anyway. You never know right? I hav to wait to put the dirt in on the land side until this evening anyway because I need a couple more bricks of the coconut fiber. That one brick will only fill about 2 inches and I need three more. I'll put a layer of river rock on the land side as well for drainage. Just incase I get a little too overly excited watering the plants.
:Thank you Marc!
::rinse the rock off. the stuff should settle soon enough anyway. but do not add everything into the tank before you know there are no leaks around the divider. let the water sit for at least six hours before adding the dirt so you know there are no pinhole leaks. and put a bead of glue on both sides of the divider
