I just did a rescape on the my desktop fluval spec CRS tank. I love feedback/criticism/suggestions. I have two thoughts about future tweaks. Something about the wood bothers me, so I may tie some moss to it, I just don't want it to spread too crazy and overshadow the other plants or the moss wall. Second, the front right looks empty to me, if it still looks that way if I put the moss on the wood I may plant some Pogostemon erectus trimmings there.
Java moss wall
Anubias nana petite
Hoping they all do well under the stock light with some excel.

I added some Taiwan moss to the wood and trimmed the pogostemon a touch. I still am not a big fan of it in that corner. Thinking I need something low lying with broader leaves. Also, never kept two different mosses in the same tank before, hope they won't mix too much.
Well, I ended up going with the S. Repens. Also replaced the Anubias nana petite with some Elatine Triandra. Prlly gonna end up switching that back though. I might just give the Anubias some time floating in the co2 injected tank to put out some more leaves.
I just noticed that the lighting in the spec doesn't exactly make for good pictures as its reflecting off the plants in the pictures. I'll see if I can do anything about that later and maybe get another picture up.
It's looking really nice. I like the contrast of greens and you have a nice variety of textures. How did you make your moss wall?
I couldn't find any mesh locally that had large enough holes to let the moss grow through, so I found a finer mesh and sewed a large portion of the moss to the front of it. It has started to attach itself but isn't quite done yet.
Was just looking at this thread and noticed the tank has grown in quite a bit. I've even trimmed a couple of the S. Repens since the last update. I may even need to go through what I'm sure will be a tedious task of trimming the moss. Almost all the elatine melted with the exception of a single node. I'm leaving it for now to see what it does.
