    Yeah the heading of the thread makes me seem rather indecisive, but I do have a real plan - well almost.

    My first e(im)mersed tank is a 900x600x600 cube ... it is just over 5 weeks in the making every few days I add a few more plants or wood. Depending on the success of this tank I will be doing a few more in the future.

    For me the concept of an e(im)mersed tank relates to the formation of new growth .. when it is too wet to be emersed and not wet enough to be immersed. What new growth might look like could vary greatly.

    Thanks for looking at my e(im)mersed tanks thread ... as indicated in the first post this is really an experiment into what is emersed and what is immersed - especially when it comes to plants that are drenched 24x7.

    Pleased with the current state ... really do need to stop adding more plants and let it just grow in now.

    8 week have past since the project started ... seeing some slow transformation on some of the plants, other like the moss seem to like it.

    Not sure what progress should look like ... but it does feel like maybe the growth should be faster or is it just to wet.

    MPK + MgSO4 seems to have done the trick ...

    All is good ... even have some flowers and loads of new growth. Why do we insists on drowning our plants again?

    Wow this would look superb when fully grown in. Maybe some more flowering plants ?
