Mini-m jungle/moss ada wood cabinet

Setting up a MINI-M, thinking of doing a "jungle" style tank.

For plants I was thinking a "moss-centric" direction; fissodens, xmas, and java I have in abundance. I have a good number moss rocks/trees growing out already ready for transplant.

Dwarf sag, giant baby tears, riccia, and dwarf hydrocotyle are on my short list of other plants for the tank.

I picked up some really cool "moss sticks" last week I want to incorporate. They appear to be a metal wire covered with peat and then covered with java moss. They are extremely flexible and can be bent into any shape. If you didn't know otherwise you would assume that they were moss covered branches.


As for substrate I am really undecided at the moment.

Great start. Super nice stand and clean look

I never thought about that, to have moss growing on something that you can bend and manipulate, might have to try that!

Yeah, this sounds like a fun project, that is a genuine ADA stand?

What light are you planning on using?

The stand is indeed the real McCoy. The temptation for lighting is to get an aquasky on there. Otherwise I have an Archaea slim LED that would do the job. Hopefully something good comes from all the ingredients on the table.

Can you post a pic of the archaea? Is it clip on? Or the long, flush one?
