    Hi all here's my first go at an emersed set up
    I got a very cheap goldfish bowl :)
    Substrate I used a bit of house cactus soil (just to get rid of it) and pond soil I also chucked in a bit of slow release ferts and a bit of laterite (just because its laying around)
    Plants
    HC
    Bacopa (species ?)
    Staurogyne repens
    Cryp (species unknown only survivors from my 20L)
    I covered it with cling film for now
    Sat on a heat mat and lights as per my journal

    Cool! Getting really into these at the moment. Can we get done side shots or is the glass making the photos dodgy?

    I will add some shots from the side over the weekend as we've had about 4 inches of snow tonight so won't be going anywhere :)
