    Hydrocleis nymphoides, 2 small Echinodorus and some moss.

    PLants above the tank are:
    Monstera spp, Spatiphyllum spp, Asplenium spp. and Blechnum spp.

    Lights that I use above the tank are:
    1x 58W T8 TL Philips 950
    2x 20W LED Floodlights 6500K (Late evening lights)
    Also I sometimes use the three 50W GU10 Spots 4000K for the plants above the tank.

    Yesterday I started to coat my upper section of the tank. This is done with Elastopur, which is a two component coating. I used brown color pigment to darken the Elastopur and after that I used Peatfibers to give a more natural look. It isn't ready yet, so much word have to be done like more plants and decoration.
