I like the moss on the rock. How did you attach it?

nice tank, look forward to the progress pics!

I'm also curious how you attached the moss to the rock, I can't see any thread.

Time for an update

so the R. wallichi went nuts and i ignored it for far too long (welcome to Vancouver when we get a few days of sun!!)



so i did the usual trim and such




and i added a group of ~12 gertrudae rainbows, some Yellow neocardinia, and some wild type bee shrimp. all are doing well!
