I've never had much luck with HC and I don't really plan on fertilizing at all. Maybe a little co2 here and there. I also don't really want my hands in this tank either which isn't really possible with the occasional trims that HC requires. Moss and Belem would be a lot less maintenance.

A carpet of fissidens? I just fear that it'll take forever to fill in. Especially una setup without any CO2 or Ferts. I find that it'll be worth it though. How about downoi instead of Belem?

Any other suggestions with flora? Having trouble thinking of more.
