thanks

yes it is a pain when it get in the moss and filter i was too lazy to pick the duckweed out of the moss

this is my favorite tank but my 1g still had to fill in and the colors and much diffferent in the one

i can't believe how much i've learned i used to not know what anything in the planted tank world was now i know some but have a lot to learn...

do you think it would be worth it to use a limestone diffuser and put DIY Co2 using a 500ml bottle?

Moss of your plants wouldn't require it, and are already doing great, however, i would add CO2 to help them out as with your amount of lighting algae will strike sooner or later, and CO2 will definiately help.

I think your Betta tank is great! In fact I'm jealous at how plain mine looks right now (espcially without a fish) I plan on getting another Betta this Friday (1/16), hopefully he won't come with ick.
