    Cool Orchid Tank Love!!!

    So its been a long time since I have posted pictures or anything for that matter. Here are a couple shots of my 55 gallon tanks. I switch them around constantly but these are a couple of arrangments I had a month ago. Recently because of moving, I took apart my vivarium tank and now all my plant are just in one tank with only pots. My orchids are loving the new conditions since I have been using the tanks. Some awesome new leaf and root growth. I have no recent pictures but I can update this thread here and there.

    Fine thanks. Now that the semester is over I'm having a great time. I've even had time to pick up a new book.

    Everything looks very healthy. It's amazing what good humidity will do for an orchid. Excellent growing job.
