    My Emersed Aquarium Plant Rack
    Hi all

    My last setup was going great with daily routines of misting and daily maintenance but due to more important personal things and being away from home i lost a few plants.

    Lack of these daily chores has made me setup a more advanced system that will allow me to leave my setup to run itself for a while without losing my plants.

    4x Shelf Rack 1800W 1800H x 600D
    12 x RUBS - 3 shelves of 4 RUBS all plumbed as one system.
    1 X Pond Filter that has a built in uv light.
    1 X Sump and Pump to the filter on a higher location.
    3 x t5 lighting, 1 for each shelf 9 some now have 2 per shelf)
    2 x aquarium heaters in sump to raise water temp for humidity, this will also prevent freezing water in the winter as the setup is in the colder garage.
    1 x Air stone in sump

    Based on the rub sizes each rub will allow me to have 15+ x 3" pots of plants x 12 rubs = 180 pots

    A bit over the top maybe but that was my plan.

    The plant list is just for reference and has changed slightly. also i probably did not need the pond f
