IWANNAGOFAST Last few shots before this tank comes down. I'm moving to a new apartment so I'm going to tear this down to make the move easier. Probably going to try a different set up as i'm getting quite bored of this tank now, the moss carpet is just too easy to take care of, nothing to do = boring.

I was never able to win my battle w/ BGA, i chalked it up to not having enough flow at the front of the tank with the way I had my tank scaped, but my new plans should be better as far as flow goes.

One of my favorite views of the tank. I added some riccia to the moss and it's just spread out beautifully. I can understand how people hate this plant but it's not so bad if you have it all attached to mosses, keeps it held down and the pearling is sweet.

Lastly, I picked up a vuppa a few days ago, I love it! After the first day of being very noisy, it's settled in and is now silent. I think running this from the start would've really helped with the BGA.

Thanks everyone, stay tuned for the next scape!

IWANNAGOFAST Thanks! I'm actually running into some BGA issues right now, and it's def. a pain in the butt. I am running co2 in this tank, doesn't hurt to have it.

The light is an archaea 36w PC light from aqua forest.

The mesh is just standard stainless steel mesh, I actually bought it already tied down to the mesh.

This tank is going to be shut down or at least changed soon, I have to move to a new apartment

ramen lover wow! one of my favorite tanks! and it doesn't look like it uses co2? very nice.

what kind of steel mesh did you use for the moss? do you have any algae problems? what light fixture is that?

IWANNAGOFAST Thank you guys! The moss carpet is nice, very easy instant carpet but ridonkulously expensive, there's like, $250 of moss right there.

HokieFish I love this tank (and the Top Gear Show). I only hope I have half this much success in my build. I started a journal for my 6 gallon long that I want to begin, so if you have a chance and could check out my plan and give me any feedback that would be great. Thanks!

wetbizquit wow.... contest worthy tank.... looks stunning great job! let me know when you are in need of a trim i will gladly take any growth off your hands to add to my collection

IWANNAGOFAST Updated the tank. No more HC, all moss now. full and expensive carpet of mini pelia and mini rose moss in the front row.

Added a few more rocks too

150EH It's looking good so far, will there be a lot of trimming involved with this aquascape? Also your mounds are fairly steep are they filled with rock or did you use anything to help hold them?

IWANNAGOFAST I didn't enter unfortunately.

The tank was in no shape for any competition. Next year!
