That tank is going to look stunning in that room- the dark substrate, with the gnarly moss-covered root wood will really compliment your leather and wood decor.
What is that substrate you're using? What is the front left of the tank being saved for? You seem to have it sectioned off with plastic?

I really like it with just the mosses to be honest,especially when they grow in and lush up the contrast of the different species of moss will look really good.
Have to get me a small nano tank..

Cheers!
Mesh came with moss. If you ever in Finglas Maxi zoo - they usually sell moss like

Thank you!
It is soil *no substrate). ADA Amazonia soil.
Front left section gives me a control of water levels of the tank as dis will stay dry for a week or 2. So if water leveks too high i let the pipe in to suck water out. In thus case I will have acces to the lovest kvls of the tank and no soil will get stuck in pipe.

Nice setup Lauris, I like the natural it looks. The microsword seems a nice choice but I won't be adding a lot of plants. A microsorum pteropus trident maybe or too big?
What kind of moss have you used?
Are you doing a shrimp tank?

I'd like to wait for you and chat with you and Kev a lil...maybe but other time!

Hi Lydia!
Thanks. I dunno if it was a micro sword or something like but very small in size. Could be some type of micro sword. Already added to tank. Mostly all over the bottom. I will see if it will settle in. I will try to keep it fairly low.I defo will add some bushy ones on right side top. This was the plan.

I would like to keep crystals breeding in it.

Btw - I promised to Kev to do a tank photography workshop at his place. So I do believe it would be a nice time to meet up if Kev does not mind

I have 3 type of mosses - triangle moss, java and willow moss

I am planted!

That's a great little time-lapse viseo there, Larius. Should have recognised the ADA Amazonia- I have about 6 bags of it in my main tank! Looks much better in yours though! :laugh:
Good luck with the tank and keep those photos of the progress coming.

I would love that, sure we can have a great time at same time we learn something new!

Lovely the triangle, didn't know it.

I have some willow in a breeding box, don't know where to use it since its too large, ideas?

you've defiantly have been bitten by the planted bug Lauris. :lol:

Looking good.
the "sword" plant looks like lilaeopsis braziliensis. Which can grow with a bit of height depending on light.
It might grow taller than your rocks. Just keep an eye on it.

I would place the Co2 diffuser in the filter section and let the pump blow it around the tank.

Good luck with it.

Thanks for heads up on correcting my lak of knowledge Darren. Will keep an eye on them.

Will think about Co2 but I have a spare glass diffuser..it would be a shame to hide it :)
