Some pics from the dry start only HC is planted for now. I think to plant the mosses and hairgrass as well. Not sure witch plants can handle the dry/flooded change. As long as I know HC get mostly the nutritients fron it is root system so will handle the dry start I suppose.

What do u guys think? Any opinion and criticism appriciated. Thanks.
