Get some faster carpet plant or moss because it's going to take long take a long time wit such a small amount. And fissidens don't do well emersed.

Looks great! Where'd you get the tank? I'm starting to want one...
Fiss is fine emersed, but you will want more. Good luck! I love your tanks!

I had fissidens grow well for me emersed. It just won't grow as fast as other mosses emersed.

very encouraging setup. I havent contemplated supergluing fissidens yet but this might actually be the way to go. Looking forward to your success here!

Dimensions are 20x15x15cm (8x6x6 inch)
Unfortunately i don't have pictures step by step, but it's quite simple

1. you need to cut the glass. In my case 2 pieces of 20x15cm 2 pieces of 15x14cm and bottom 19,1x14cm. Sides are glued around the bottom (not on the bottom) Glass thickness is 4mm.

2. You need to tape sellotape that way when you put it together there is no visible spots on the glass, but only on joints - in my case 4mm out off edge on sides what are overlapping.

3. Sealing/assembling - first glue sides and bottom - make sure they are upright ( 90') and wait till silicon is dry (first wipe off all excessive silicone). Then glue front and back.

4. when all is dry remove sellotape, and if there is some (dry) excessive silicone use razor blade to remove it.

That's all, hope this is helpful

I made it, glass is glued with silicone

The tank was rescaped. I had no luck with Fissidens. Next attempt will be with Mini Christmas moss.

This is new look:
