Working on fixing that, haha.) My problem before was that I had used, again, decorative 'rocks' as a 'cap' instead of a fine gravel or sand or whatever. So I tried to fix it by doing the exact same thing. (What's that quote about insanity...?)

I'm glad my moss-stick is appreciated. I thought it was fairly clever

10g "Community" of nothing but Danios - 2g (barely) planted Betta - 2.5g Betta - 1g Pond Snail Repository

My aquascape style tends towards 'tall in the back, short in the front, lots and lots of green and stuff. And maybe a rock somewhere...'
