Fluval Edge - Build Thread

First tank. Doing the dry start method in the Fluval Edge. Reaching inside the tank can be a bit tricky.

Manzanita branch. Adhered it to an acrylic sheet with aquarium-safe silicone.
X-Mas moss tied with clear fishing line (wasn't able to get cotton moss, plus it was pretty expensive), Yamaya Stones


Week Day 1-Week 1







Week 2 - La Plata white sand, Azoo soil, Dwarf hairgrass and Fissiden Moss on lava rocks
[

Week 3 - Slowly growing

thanks.
only thing i'm wondering about is if the moss is going to stick to the large stone.

question: I noticed the tips of the hairgrass turning yellow and they're all leaning away from the light. Is it possible that i'm giving it too much light? I have (2) MR-11 Hagen LED bulbs in there. I have it on for about 6 hours a day.
