Has anyone ever set a riparium before? If so I would love to pick your brain. I have a couple of empty tanks and I want to setup one as a riparium. The two tanks I have are a 40B and a 29 tall.
I know you usually want a taller tank for these kinds of setups but I have see where ppl have used 40b for these setups and I think I am going to try and use that size too.

All I have is the tank LoL. I am going to have to build a stand for it. Also I have no lights. I am planning on getting some just need a few suggestion on which kind to get?

Also need ideas on how to make some hanging baskets. I have a few ideas but more is better. I know you can buy them but I think they are a little on the pricey side for baskets. LoL

I have been reading on these types of setups and I need to read some on them. So any thoughts, ideas, or advice would be great!

Why would you say that? Not saying I would do one the same, but I think it has some nice features.

Byron, you know 'sick' is a good thing nowadays.. like 'bad' was in the early 90's.

At some point I'm going to get around to making a 10 gallon brackish riparium with fiddler crabs...

We need a separate forum for us geezers, from you youngsters. I don't even remember "bad" being good. I must have slept through all this.
