This is still (as of today) in the idea stages so no ideas posted are bad ideas. I got an extra piece of Manzanita burl today with my order for my 33g Long and I am considering doing a true planted tank where the growth emerges from the water line of the tank. This would be the first tank without a cover I have ever done. I liked the idea when I was doing research on my 33g pants. This is going to be a low budget build. I am using the free wood I got. I also have a free piece of bamboo I have floating in my 10 gallon that I would plant in here. The tank itself is very cheep at petsmart. I would use the left over eco complete from my 33g build. Any tips, suggestions or ideas are welcome. Also, I know someone is going to ask, what are you going to keep in here? And the answer honestly is IDK. There is no current plans for live animals. Maybe in the future I will see something in the pet store I like or online but this is more of a plant only aquasacping build focusing on getting plants to grow above and beyond the water line.
