    I keep running into new unusual strange plants that are possible candidates for this setup.

    I was just reminded about an especially weird tropical aroid that grows in swampy riverbank forests in South America, Montrichardia arborescens. It grows into a weird small tree and forms dense stands in the water. Just look at these image search results...

    Google: Montricharida arborescens

    Sometimes it is hard to find commerical sources for odd tropicals in the US, even though nurseries in Australia and Indonesia and places like that have them, but there is apparently this place in Florida that has this plant...

    I gotta get this plant and try it out in this tank. Supposedly it can grow in brackish water too. It will eventually get way too big, but I should be able to manage it for a while and maybe prune it back.

    Here is a Wikimedia Commons (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mo...ia_arborescens) image of W. arborescens showing the foliage and spathe...

    This setup just has a single HO T5 lamp with reflector. This is a little too dim but I am going to add a second T5 and that should be enough.

    Hey thanks for watching it. The internet is so quiet these days that it hasn't gotten many views at all. Please share it with your friends!
