The Riparium Takes Shape

So I’m completely infatuated with my new project of building a riparium in a 5 gallon Fluval Chi.  I’ve taken off the stock filter/light/fountain combo and stripped it down to the bare tank.  Much better.  During the last few days I’ve been mineralizing the soil for the tank since I’m going full Walstad natural planted tank on this bad boy.  One more day of soil prep and I’m off to start the planting!!!!

Day 2 of soil mineralizing.  It’s much prettier in person.  Trust me.  Black flippin’ gold.
