10G, Fluval 7.9 & 2.2G Moss/Shrimp Tank

So...

Finally bought some decent equipment so start up these tanks once again!

I had the idea of cultivating different mosses and came up with my top 3.
1.Weeping Moss
2.Christmas Moss
3.Mini Christmas Moss

I didn't want them mixing so, they're all in there own tanks!

So heres my little Journal for my own records.

Still have about 3 weeks more into the cycle, so any helpful information is much appreciated!

Anything I could do to get my parameters ideal for Crystal Red/Blacks?
Thoughts on scape?

Your welcome. I've never tried weeping moss. Last month I picked up some peacock moss and love it.
