    Question Intro

    I am in the process of setting up a 55 gallon aquarium,48"wide,13"deep,24'high.I've mounted a few orchids on two pieces of driftwood.There are two layers of eggcrate on the bottom of the tank.There's an automatic mister to maintain humidity.I am playing with different settings to find the best level of moisture.A small fan is blowing on the bottom of tank for air circulation.I'm going to introduce some moss in an attempt to create a a better aesthetic.If there is anything that I should be doing that I've missed,please chime in.Any suggestions?All input welcome.webestylin

    Hi WBS! Welcome to OrchidTalk! The set up sounds great. I hope you will post a photo. There are some other setups like you describe here in the threads.




    Cheers,
