Ah, and just to show off 2 of my new additions with emmersed plants, moss, 3 types of Java Fern, floaters, snails, RCS and whatever else fell in. Substrate is re-used AquaSoil 'multi" in one and 10+ year-old Flourite in the other, both under a single 14w CFL bulb sitting pretty on the breakfast counter.

Both have been set-up the same day about 6 months ago with no water changes to date.

I used Osmocote under plain gravel substrate, plus a few drops of Flourish and Excel every week.

Great looking vases. I love the jungle aesthetic!

Also, can I have the name of this flowering plant, and also the name of the one behind it with the variegated leaves?

Marimo Cube
1 gallon cube • indirect sunlight • marimo ball and marimo covered Malaysian driftwood • no fauna atm
Marimo ball is floating from air bubbles/co2 right after a water change

I have another that is .7-.8 gallon but its just a holding tank for micro java plantlets for now so nothing pretty.

Dirt.
I turn the light on in the morning, and off when I go to bed.
When the water gets low, I put in more.
That's it, lol. Easy!
