They likely climbed up the outflow to eat all the yummy stuff.

Time for another Fissidens trim!

Planning to use some reef epoxy putty to secure the lava rock this weekend, as I'll be moving several hundred miles away with all my tanks soon.

Also - and I am absolutely unsure how this occurred - there's a Crystal Red Shrimp or two hiding out in the tank. Guessing they came in with Fissidens when really tiny? I am always super-careful, so I'm absolutely floored.

You can see the really white shrimp just off center (right) in the photo above. Those other white spots are young Malaysian Trumpet Snails.

Huh, never seen this thread. Really like the lava rock, and the fissidens too! I will have to look out for some of that and maybe add it to my 20L down the road
