The pink stuff is a new plant Ive been working on called pink coral moss. Its been mutated by injecting a color enhancing gene into the dna strand....

Not really....The pink stuff is dying black brush algae. I spot treated with hydrogen peroxide and excel. This kills the algae without harming the moss if done right as you see in the picture. The day after it turns an amazing bright pink then dulls to grey and then melts. The coloring is quite spectacular and really is that pink in real life.

Some photos of the fish in this tank. The pygmy corys really enjoy this tank. I have a cave in the back of the rock wall on the right that they love. I wish I could view the tank from all sides as the back of it is just as cool.

That's a well-thought out setup. Not only does it look good it has a lot of interesting areas that can hold one's attention. I think you have a chance to do well in ADA Contest. We can use some more Americans in there.

The carpet is a combination but predominantly mini pellia. It also has HC, rose moss and micro swords. The predominant moss throughout the entire scape is mini pellia as well. The other mosses give the interest and texture changes. Especially the Rose and mini rose mosses. They get much longer and bushy looking. Ill take some close ups and post them during next photo shoot. Its pretty cool how the different moss patches grew together.
