LuredIn's ADA Mini M

Hey guys, I'm fairly new to the aquascaping scene and this is my first planted tank. I did some research and decided on a dry start to begin things.

Hardscape:




Some Christmas Moss on this driftwood.


HC, Glosso and Hair Grass growing.



I haven't decided on which filter or CO2 system yet. Maybe the Eheim 2211 and Do!aqua CO2 starter kit?

That's the brownness moss I've ever seen. Where did you get it?

Hope it comes back

It's slowly starting to get greener and spreading out. I got it from azgardens.com.

Gotta agree with eric, that moss looks like it has seen better days, also, that branch isn't really doing it for me man. Did you explore different hardscapes before committing to this one?

Keep us posted as this thing fills in.

2211 yes, the Eheim will look great with this tank.
The Do!aqua CO2 setup, you will BLEED money. Those cute lil containers cost a fortune, I'm partial to GLA's Atomic Paintball Regulators, diffusers, etc. Looking good so far, hope that moss bounces back.

maybe somebody will hook you up with some new green moss.
If I had some left after I sold off my moss wall i'd send you a pile.

when you are ready, hit me up for some fissidens.
i'll hook you up with a good deal.

I checked out GLA's CO2 kit and they seem to be sold out. I don't know a lot about this CO2 stuff. Can you help me with all the parts I would need if i wanted to make my own?

Checked out what fissidens are. They look pretty nice. Where do you ship from?

@LuredIN - you should get some fissidens and moss from Bostoneric...I've purchased plants from him before and it was some of the healthiest plants I've ever received. I would get more if only i had a bigger tank!

Update 10/17, 5 days after planting.

The Christmas Moss is looking better right?


The Glosso on the right side of my tank is slowly melting away..

The moss does look like it is bouncing back.
