mostly just java, maybe a little xmas mixed in there. On the smaller stone on the right side, is fissidens fontanus, which by the way has really grown in nicely and is attached firmly to my stones. I added some more moss so Im going to give it a few more weeks until I had water.
Don't worry, the moss will rebound, mosses are pretty tough. I've nuked whole tanks of moss before to brown nothing. Takes 2 weeks or so and you're good again.
And they are rebounding as we speak! Thanks for the advice Frank ... Here is the latest.
I think I've decided on HM(MM) as a foreground. Planning on trimming it down short periodically to keep it down so it doesn't grow taller than the mid ground plants. Was debating on riccia as well, but not sure if I want to spend the time tying it rocks! I may add it as accents in the future. In the distant future I will most likely add co2, unless I get shrimp, then maybe not. I haven't decided. Right now, I think I'm going with a trio of scarlet badis.
Another side note, the micranthemum umbrosum is taking off! This tank is almost ready to be flooded.
You said it. I got a tiny HOB. Packing it with seachem matrix. Should already be seeded in my 2211 that I have running on a holding tank.
Sounds like a plan. I got the 12" version so I'm honestly not sure what I even want to do with it yet. E. hydropiper and stems for sure but I'm torn between a canister, a HOB or a Vuppa. Luckily I have tons of other junk laying around.... (old CO2 equipment, aquasoil, sub. additives, ferts) Decisions decisions.
April 1st updated. Very blue shot but plants are thriving. 50+ stems of HM are on the way. should fill up my forground... Im hoping they dont get too tall. if they start to grow up I will trim short. If plans dont work out I will spring for a paintball setup on this one also... FYI- look for my MINI-M layout. Should be ready really soon. Got stones and tank and stand all ready to go. let me know what you think!
