You tank looks great by the way. I would definitely put more moss on that wood you got there. It will fill up nicely
I am using pantyhose. I just cut up a circle and wrapped it around my intake. Most of my baby RCS hide in that java fern at the base of the tree.

I want to buy more moss for it but that is what I call my BBA tree. It is covered in it and it affected the moss. As soon as I kill it all I will be purchasing more moss

Genius idea! I've been throwing a few RCS into this tank and don't want them getting sucked into my filter. I will have to this at some point this week. Thanks!

I was looking into that as well and was bummed out when I couldn't find it in the right size... and I checked a few websites too... oh well. Panty hose will have to do
