Terrarium from old aquarium
Posted 01 October 2011 - 20:31 PM
I use plastic for mading the internal structure and I put some quartz sand in front part for maskerating internal structure.
There is a mountain with a river and a waterfall into a lake (with lemma minor).
The terrarium was planned using 3d programs for calculating the final result.
The terrarium contains Nepenthes, Ultricularia and Drosera.
Nepenthes and Ultriculatria are in vessels that are not immersed in water.
Under the structures there is a underground lake with a pomp for making the upper river.
Some photos summary:

The advantage about neon is that they are less expansive and they can run for 10.000 hours before they died.
The disadvantage is that the light is concentrate in one point, while with neon it is distribuited over the length of tube.
For plants I see that Heliamphore grown very well and even with good colors with this lamps (over one year of testing), and Nepenthes are producing new pitchers even if I use only 9 hours of this light in winter.
