Colombo flora base wrapped in a cut up wash bag for baby clothes
Some tana sand and petrified wood and a few Plants later ( no pics men can't multitask :lol: )

Spraying twice a day at the moment with ro water shouldn't need ferts as florabase is nutrient rich
Not sure how it'll go but maybe add a few shrimp if it takes well and a glass cover to get rid of the cling film
Will try and keep progress updated.
Thanks for looking.

Had to take this down to make way for another project, it's new home is an old fluval spec with the filter chamber removed sat on my old fluval edge stand for lighting may need a heat mat if I want to keep it going longer term the LEDs don't seem to create as much heat.

Added a little bolbitus and a fern I found growing out of a derelict pub where the gutter was leaking so I assume it likes its feet wet so to speak :)
