Wow your moss growing skills make me want to steal your tanks <.< I think it looks great overgrown, then again I like the jungle look.

You shouldn't take life to seriously. You'll never get out alive.

Damn, I wish my moss looked that great. I can't seem to grow it well. The moss in my 3.2g is starting to turn brown after months of green and it has a led light. It's driving me up the wall. I love moss, but it seems to hate me.

Also love the full look.

18g (Red Cherry Neo Shrimp | Malawa Shrimp)
7.5g (Yellow Neo Shrimp)
3.2g (Pumpkin Neo Shrimp)
2g (Snails)
11.4g (new home soon for the Pumpkin Neos)

Moss needs good flow to flourish.

What's your flow like? What kind of filtration?

All tanks have AquaClear filters. 18g has AC70. 3.2g and 7.5g have AC30s. The filters in the 18g and 7.5g are right near the moss.

Christmas Moss got way too thick so I removed 99% of it and re-glued some on to the hardscape:





Here are the adult Corydoras habrosus remaining in the tank, all huddled in one area as the tank refilled:



Planning on re-scaping with a ton of Anubias nana 'petite' and maybe some Buces.

Woah! It's been a hot minute since I've updated.

Tank is coming along quite well and I've had to remove some Crypts due to excessive growth. Did a monstrous moss trim a month ago and the Christmass Moss is beginning to thicken back up. Will aim for photos during the next water change.

I've got a new rimless bowfront coming from AquaTop soon and I'm toying with using it to replace this tank, though I do still love it. Am just determining whether or not I want to deal with Cories and an open top.

In the interim, here's one of the young Corydoras habrosus growing up:

Ha! Figured it was easier to update most of my journals at the same time.

Woah, it's been a while since I've updated. Everything is going pretty swell with the tank but I'm thinking about making some changes.

Am re-scaping the 12gal long and am toying with moving the Corydoras habrosus in this tank over to the 12. Not sure what that means for this tank but I feel another re-scaping shaping up.

Maybe something with nice rocks or huge chunks of driftwood.

Ugh. Ended up losing this tank during the move. I am super-upset about it!

Now that I've arrived in my new city (need to update my location information), I'm going to pick up a new tank for the critters.

If you're talking about the Current fixture, you can adjust light levels with the remote control.
