I"m using your X-Mas Moss. Put an Amazonia or Africana core inside your Stratum. Outer shell Stratum for looks, AS or AF core for increased PH buffering.

LOL I get my moss mixed up all the time after i tie them on something....humm...is that java, xmas, taiwan, willow?...

Added Erios. Erio Parkeri in the back, Erio Cinereum in the front. The Parkeri looks a bit large for the tank. Will trade for more small leaf Erios. One more spot open for another Erio where the mineral rock is right now.

Reverse Color Accent. You can actually see the individual species of plants better this way because of my poor camera skills.

In Real Color. The Crypt has perked up and sprouted a small new leaf. Yay!

Hey what's the plant that's all around the tank, especially in the bottom left of the second pic in your last post. Really neat.

PS great Erios BTW

I think you are looking at the Belem. According to TPT is is part of the Erios family but a stem vs a bush.

Ok, here are the plants starting from the CO2 diffuser going counterclockwise. Second pic.

Tonia Belem next to the diffuser ---> UG connecting the two corners ---> Tonia Sp. "Fluviatilis" in the lower right hand corner------> more UG------> Tonia Belem again under the orb.

That orb is pretty cool looking. You should try and order some for your store. Looks like there is enough interest. Thanks for the lilaeopsis brasiliensis name.

Ah, that's it. Great looking plant, does it grow upwards higher?

It does, like a regular stem plant. I just planted it DEEP.

I really like that plant! Is it really really softwater? The place I just read on it said so... And what about co2 with it? Is it a must?

Yup. CO2, high light, ferts or the leaves will start turning yellow and nasty.

Aww, doesn't sound like it'd work in a spec...

I had some belem in a mini m. I used pfertz and co2, some of the stems were doing really well and some just died. I didn't try and use RO water though. I ended up yanking all of it out.

Yeah, I do, thankfully. But as far as lighting, ferts, and co2...

Here's my final question: do you think that I could grow it under the stock fluval spec light with pressurized co2 and dosing excel? As previously stated, I do have soft water.
