Aquatic or terrestrial moss? There's plenty of terrestrial moss in my containers, but it's not helping any.

Yes you can!

Your soil appears quite dry... Is it just me or is there something I'm not seeing?

Guess I'll go for number #27 ?

Will do my best to get some pics of my most modest effort up here after work tomorrow.

Basic setup, fired clay substrate, dirty tank water, 5 watt LED lamp for 12 hours.

2 gallon angled square container with flat glass top, estimated.


Java moss on the bottom right, Rotala rotundifolia bottom left, micro sword mid to right, crypt in the top left.
snippets of myriophyllum, ludwigia, and soon some more stems.

The soil is damp but not wet and the tub is at 90% humidity.

That looks too dry to me.

Dilution is the solution for the pollution.
Quote me as saying I was misquoted.

If you agreed with me we'd both be right.
