|TankYouVeryMuch||Huh, never seen this thread. Really like the lava rock, and the fissidens too! I will have to look out for some of that and maybe add it to my 20L down the road|

Time for another Fissidens trim!
Planning to use some reef epoxy putty to secure the lava rock this weekend, as I'll be moving several hundred miles away with all my tanks soon.
Also - and I am absolutely unsure how this occurred - there's a Crystal Red Shrimp or two hiding out in the tank. Guessing they came in with Fissidens when really tiny? I am always super-careful, so I'm absolutely floored.
You can see the really white shrimp just off center (right) in the photo above. Those other white spots are young Malaysian Trumpet Snails.

Well, that was tons of fun.
Just performed filter maintenance after not doing so for a few months and discovered a colony of Tiger Shrimp living in the bottom of the AC30!
Was a nice surprise because I thought I'd lost more of them than I actually had.

im only going to use S.repens , anubias petite and of course some kind of moss

Super glue cures under water.
Just dab it on, press the Fissidens or moss down and you're done.

|tattooedfool83||How do you glue more moss when u trim it and the rock is submerged? Drain water, glue let dry and refill?|

Thanks! The tank couldn't be more simple. Some sand (would look better with Black Diamond blasting grit), lava rock, fissidens and water.
It's always the simple ones that end up looking the best when it comes to shrimp, I think.

|Gavin288||Really love this tank, i've read the whole thread about 3 times, since my DBP 5.5 is coming this week thinking ether PFRs or red rili shrimp|

Should have done this in the beginning but I didn't want to stain the rocks in any way.
Now I think I'm going to use some reef epoxy putty to adhere this mound together so the tank may be moved around without too much worry. Plan to do it this week. Here's hoping everything will go back together nicely.
