      OK Pictures.....

      One year later...

      The bamboo idea and a subsequent patio lattice idea failed in the execution. The plants just never hid what looked contrived and artificial.

      So while I was away, my WIFE tore down the tank and used loquat branches from our yard as anchor points for the epiphytes. Looks great. Sort of a mangrove swamp theme.

      The automatic water change system described previously continues to work flawlessly and most importantly - NO FLOODS.

        Get more wood, you can do the same type of thing with stone and add the plants to layers between, like using Bricks and motor, but bricks and plants.
        You can do those standard Hotel type rock layouts using the rocks and stuff the plants in between.
