I used plastic mesh and suction cups to get the moss wall in place. And I haven't experienced any issues with my moss from using excel.

Thanks for the compliment I'm still a newbie - but I enjoy looking at it and am so happy it's filling out

Just finished transferring everything from my old one gallon to my new Spec at work yesterday. Has anybody tried pogostemon erectus in their Spec? I was thinking of that and/or microsword. I have a few small java fern on the driftwood and a small Argentine sword that wasn't getting enough light in my main aquarium(other plants blocking light).

Will the pogostemon grow with the spec lighting? I will be dosing ferts and root tabs, don't want to do C02 with shrimp (and mainly because it is on my desk at work).

Gonna add some crypts or some kind of sword in the left corner.

Not that they aren't amazing and beautiful, but are those any variation on Fluval Specs?
