If you have marimo balls in your tank it could be Cladophora on the wood, which is what Marimo Moss balls are.
Not sure if it is capable of that, but it would be a nice algae to have especially if it vies for space on the wood keeping BBA away.

If anyone wants some algae, I'll do a RAOK for the cost of shipping.

The diamond heads sell at my LFS for $4.99/ea, but i got them for free since i'm an employee.

Really? I think it looks terrible... i'll probably end up removing it and adding weeping moss, but we'll see.

I just added the marimo moss balls to the rocks a few days ago so i don't think that's where it came from.

AFA. It's ohko stone, it just doesn't look like it. They were smaller pieces so they really didn't have too many holes in them.

Within the next few weeks i'm going to be totally rescaping this tank. I already have a hardscape in mind that i've been working with. I will simply be transferring the stones over to the new setup.

This is the exact scape that i will be using, designed by yours truly. Sorry for the bad iPhone pic... by the way, this is NOT the light and tank that i will be using. This is my teacher's Mini-M that i am keeping and rescaping for her as well while she is out of town.


I'm planning on using Blyxa japonica in the back left/middle behind the rocks, and Hydrocotyle 'japan' among the rocks/to the left of the rocks (kind of in a "J" shape). The front will be ADA La Plata sand. Definitely still open to planting suggestions...

I'm also thinking about moving this tank off the stand and placing it on my desk instead (exactly where it's placed in the pic above). It looks kind of awkward on the huge stand and i would like to have a tank on my desk anyway (thanks Kiran...).

There we go! It's sort of an update! :P

jk, jk, looks cool. The only suggestion I have for the scape would be to move the stone out of the center a bit. More towards the left, although I see it may be though.

I'd like to see HC! Blyxa will look excellent.

I LOVE it! It's super easy to use, super precise, and super cool-looking too! If i was in the market for a new regulator, i would probably get a similar model for my 5LB CO2 tank as well.

Yes i definitely agree with moving the stone so it's not in the middle, but there may not be enough room to move it over to the left more and accomplish the same look that i'm hoping for. Will definitely experiment with the placement more though. Thanks for the suggestions!
