You tank looks great by the way. I would definitely put more moss on that wood you got there. It will fill up nicely
I am using pantyhose. I just cut up a circle and wrapped it around my intake. Most of my baby RCS hide in that java fern at the base of the tree.

I want to buy more moss for it but that is what I call my BBA tree. It is covered in it and it affected the moss. As soon as I kill it all I will be purchasing more moss

I know they are really red! Also I found some baby shrimp the other day!!!! The l. aromatica I cut to the base and planted it. It's actually all tall now but for some reason it turned a lemon lime color. I don't know if I need more iron or what but I'll post an updated picture today
