    I finally finished the hardscape for my tank and got things planted. I have another round of plants coming today, so I will update with a final plant list after I get everything in place.

    The main structure is a coil pot ceramic form that I had low fired to retain a bit of moisture. I then wrapped the entire thing in hygrolon and plumbed a humidifier into it. There are holes throughout, so the fog gently seeps out from within the central structure.

    I'm sure I have done a terrible job explaining this, so if you have specific questions, just ask. I've got lots of build photos that may explain things better.

    I still mist by hand daily, so I will be working out a fert schedule to rotate in with that.
