Just a minor update - added some marsilea minuta and Nymphoides sp. Taiwan from H4N. The minuta will grow slow, but that is fine. The glosso isn't spreading much, but the leaves on each plant look pretty green. I think they're done acclimating to being submerged, after ~2 months, so hopefully their growth will pick up in the next couple of weeks.
Been dosing 1mL Excel M-W-F, 1mL of Flourish on Tues, and 1/16 tsp KNO3 and a tiny tiny pinch of KH2PO4 on Mondays. I used this dosing calculator to figure out my dosing amounts for EI Low Light/Weekly. I do water changes on Fridays. I think the moss sops up most of the ferts I add, because it grows so quick and dense. The moss is also a large majority of the plant mass in the tank, so I'm not surprised if this was indeed the case. Kind of concerned that the glosso and MM would not get as much nutrients because of the moss. Maybe up my ferts more? Time will tell.
I really like the tank. Wish I could get moss to grow like that. I would have to agree on adding some red colored plants maybe planted behind the driftwood just to break up all the green. I like the placement of the anubias I do not think that it detracts from the moss.
I used to keep an open mind but my brains kept falling out.
I agree thats not java moss. Definitely christmas or mini x-mas. Maybe, spiky?
Certainly not java moss like several people have said. I think it's either Spiky moss or Anchor moss. Seems like this moss isn't too common. I've sent clumps of this to three people the past 2 months, so lucky them!
Not much new; growth is slow for the marsilea minuta, so carpeting will take forever. The moss is freakin dense as heck! Since I am Asian and I can't grow a beard, I am living vicariously through the moss I will let it grow out a bit more, I think it adds some depth to the tank and it just looks like a moss mountain.
The CPD's like to swim down along the moss, which looks really cool. Also, my berried RCS popped, and I now have ~20 little juvies. They look really cool crawling through the moss all day.
