i dont see why not. you can even tie moss to it during the dry start if you can get the moss easily. if not then just get it with blyxa later if more convenient.

Here are some plans I have been tinkering with.... I get really bored in school i swear an ape could figure out Algebra 2 :/ Anyway here it is
First pic is my plans for the layout of the bowl (i have labeled the little circles but you can't see them in pics). The other 2 is more or less what I'm going to do once i get to the point where i need to sell bits and pieces and some shrimp I had some really cool RAOK ideasthis is copied word by word)
-(3-5 frags)Frag Friday free frags for anyone (every 1st Friday of every 2 months)
-Micro Mondays free Micro-Organism Bundles (every 2nd monday of every 2 months)
-Shrimp Bowl Sunday! free Plant clippings (every last Sunday of every 2 months)
-Shrimping Saturday free cherries (every 3 weeks).
These are just neat little ideas I cam up with to Contribute back to the awesome people of this forum
Oh and the Very last pic is the layout of what I'll probably do for the Shrimp Bowl ( Trying to be more organized with pets as New Year Resolution). And happy year of the Dragon! better go out and buy d'em chinchillas and dragon fish!

Thanks I really enjoy doing this type of planning In my Aquarium Fish International i was actually re-reading an old issue( I finish them real quickly and have to wait a month for a new one >.<) and saw an article in the way back i never read about Utilitarianism Fishkeeping and had to do with raising and breeding Xiphophorus couchainus(or endangered fish in general this was the one he did). (shown below). I Think when i get the chance I'm gonna do that and then Give them to people who want them on this forum as a RAOK and I'd even pay for shipping! Because all fish deserve a second chance

I am a bit late to the party, but I see newman has gotten here, so you have been getting some good advice. I have seen some of his bowls on here, and they are amazing. He really knows his stuff. As for the black sand, good choice. I am using the same stuff in my 2.5 gallon and the HC loves it. Great for capping soil too (also being done in my 2.5 gallon). As for the bulb, I find I am getting better plant growth out of the 6500-6700K bulbs than anything out there. You can find them at Wal-Mart too in 10watt, 15watt, and 20watt sizes. I would stick with that light setup. Running one of those setups on my 2 gallon hex and don't think I will ever change it. It works too well. For plants, this site is better then them all. Lots of good sellers on here. If you are looking for HC or DHG, shoot me a PM. I may be able to help you out if you can't find anything. I also have a bunch of moss, Christmas, Flame, Peacock, just to name a few. Totally going to follow this to see where it ends up. Good job so far.

It looks like a guppy lol! I need to see a male. Believe it or not, there are NO PICTURES on google images and only 2 or 3 search results... 0.o that is scary. I think RAOK's are awesome. Why throw away/sell to a pet store when you can share the love to caring members. Lol :P that's how I think of it.

Ya that fish is extremely rare, extinct in the wild and nearly impossible to find in the market. I think the common name is: Monterrey Molly
