I think a large tank, only 1/2 filled with water, is the easiest option, but you have the added expense and weight of the spare glass etc.
I remember that thread, it is an interesting one, and I definitely think you are on to something there.bekateen wrote: ↑Wed Apr 28, 2021 3:34 pm I first brought this up here: Looking for a new biotope to model? How about a floating litter bank habitat?
I've bought loads of LED flood lights etc and dimmers with the intention of building all sort of "better" lighting rigs for the tanks, but mainly I've adapted them for other uses or they still sit in their packaging.bekateen wrote: ↑Wed Apr 28, 2021 3:34 pmMy challenges are trivial but significant in that most of my lighting fixtures rest too close to the tank, leaving little space for plants, and my hoods are full glass hoods. I need to buy or build overhanging lamps, rather than the conventional tank lights I use now. I also need to adapt or build alternative tank hoods which only partially cover the tanks, leaving room for emergent plant growth. Both easily fixed; I just have to do it.
