I look at these newest pics and I'm sick. I can't believe it, horrible! How the hell can you grow moss so well, and I can't even get java moss to do well? lol I hate you! Other than being jealous of your moss skillz nice tank! Love the pics.

BTW what ever happened to your TT? I'm debating on starting a tank of those and orange neo's. Just got a 20 long tank today, it's either TT and orange neos or dwarf puffers.

Haha thanks bud. It literally just grows when you get nice light over it for 6 hours a day.

This is mini Xmas. Best moss I've had. Mini pellia is nice once it gets used to what it's on.

My TT's just all died one by one. I think they'd do well if I got more, but that's something I might do some other day.

They're a little expensive. Why not try OBETS in your 20 long if you can keep a constant temp and a PH of 6.5.

I just like the orange color in the TT, plus the water temp here without a heater is 78 sometimes getting up to 80 for a day or two and from what I read TT can take it a bit warmer. Figured the TT and orange neos would look nice together, toss in some chili rasbora, ottos, few nerite snails and have a dream tank for me lol. Another factor is the tank will be about 10 foot away from me at my computer, so I'd like some bright shrimp so their easier to see. Not that it really matters considering I spend half the time gazing into my rcs tank sitting on my cats house.

Nice. Well I probably wouldn't get orange neos AND orange cardinia. Why not orange cardinia and blue neos? Something like that

Well. It is running really well. It's parameters are really steady. I don't see as many shrimp, possibly because I haven't fed much. I will increase my feeding.

I'll take a pic tomorrow!
