I think you've gotten the creative bug there William! A very good 180 degree
turn on the idea.
This is a great idea. Want a low maintenance carpeted foreground? Or that Mt
effect in the middle?
Lizards, froggies, Chameleons or even a rat as the principle "actor"?
What about seasonal dragonflies?
One could certainly enjoy crypts/Anubias as emergent plants and also keep
them submersed in a nice looking set up.
