Thank you all. Here are a few 'before' pics. I hope you like them.

View from the top - note I ended up changing to crystal glass tank.


The Java Ferns were the easiest as they simply slot into place.


The hard part was tying the Riccia on 2x2cm wire mesh. Oh my - how can I forget about the major disaster I had! The driftwood started floating after I put water into the tank. I realised they weren't waterlogged enough yet.

How long did it take for you to plan this out?
Hello Aro - not long at all. In fact it took no time! Green Chapter apparently had used the tank layout to shoot a video that day. I just seized the opportunity and bought the tank layout 'as-is' from them!!! Of course I had to do the rest of the hard work (the planting) myself - but that's the fun part I guess.

nice set up, must not have been cheap.
Thanks for the tip! Next time I will definitely use a finer pair of tweezers. But I guess also it should be okay after a few trimmings.
