    The 38L that used to be a sunshine tank now has a filter and heater for the Endlers.

    ‘Scraped’ it yesterday with stuff at hand and can’t wait for the stems at the back to grow and hide the heater... Second hand (leached) mopane and collected stones.

    Hopefully the foreground plants (eriocauron Vietnam, s repens) will blur the edges in between the stones, and between the stones and wood.

    Crazy story is that the morning after I added 6 Endlers (from a friend’s dismantled tank) I could only find 3 of them. Almost a week later I found one hiding in that little round wabi kusa to the right of the tank. It must’ve jumped and survived in about 200ml of unheated water and no food :eek: The water level wasn’t high, only a little higher than it is now. The other 2 are still MIA, presumably jumped too :( might find them in the river tank to the left

    The corkscrew vallis from @f-fish seems to have taken nicely! Other plants also growing in.

    That looks soo good. Very keen to see how tall your runners will grow under that light.
