Super clear water! Was the picture taken at the end of the photo period? How you attach the phoenix moss to the wood?

After a w/c, hence the gh booster powder in the photos and no co2 mist.
Fissidens was chopped up, rubbed against the driftwood and the tank was sealed in dsm for 2 weeks, then filled up. This method works for most any moss, and it attached very easily to wood and porous rock.

Ah, I was wondering what that was. The wood is very refreshing, I like it. Over here the local stores carter to the colour pebbles crowd.

crappy cell pic for now.. trimmed back the front half of the u.g to keep it from creeping forward to much, added erio compressum behind the parkeri. Moved the tonina to the left side. not sure i like the s.belem on the left side, maybe ill do compressum on both sides eventually. Everything is growing well though, slow and easy and manage.

Are your fish trying to mate or playing ring around the rosie? And I wanted to ask you about your hanging fixture, are those just rods you screwed at the back?

Its just conduit from the hardware store, use standard conduit holders and screw them to the back of the cabinet. They usually sell rubber/plastic end caps that will fit the pipe so its not an open hole on the ends. Just use a conduit bender to get the shape you want, you can probably just 'borrow' the conduit bender in the store, just bend the ends of the pipe to the approximate length you need in the store, then you wont have to pay for the bender which can be expensive.

Your tank looks great! I like the bright green colors. Those are some really good looking pictures- what camera/lens are you using?

Your CPDs look really good, as does the whole scape. When that Cuba is grown into a thick carpet it will look really sharp. I love the choice of fish, Cuba, and fissidens, perfect plants with nice tiny leaves that are great for keeping scale in a nano scape. I have a hard time keeping plants like that free of algae. Nice work!
