Thank you! It's been a joy so far. Easy Maintenance and the shrimp, cories and fish are so entertaining.

Hiddentanks New scape looks good! A credit card works well for removing algae from glass and wont scratch it.

frrok I also added 2 chili rasboras and 1 boraras merah from my mini-m. They are loving life. The only algae that I have is on the glass. And some places it's really hard to scrap off during my water changes. I'm hoping eventually it will go away. Anyone have any tips. Right now I'm trying get at it with a toothbrush. It's super tough.

frrok 48 day UPDATE. growth is slow and steady. The moss is looking really good for a low tech set up. I left the tank alone for almost 2 weeks while I was away on vacation. No issues whatsoever. Think I'm going to switch to 2 week water changes now.

But this island style doesn't look good with floaters and usually has less over all plant mass than traditional design... it will be interesting to see how successful you are... I'm rooting for you

Is that lava rock? I used that too with diced fissidens 1.5month dry start...
Yes the island look is what I was going for.
And yes, it's lava rock. I actually had to use some other granite type rocks to hold the wood down as well. After I scaped and planted it, i started to float up as I added water! Total noob mistake. Lol. I had to redo the whole thing. I am adding more plants this weekend. Some anubias nan petite and more plants in the middle. I would love to add c02 but I have shrimp and tbo id rather not deal with dosing and doing weekly water changes. Need this to be as low maintenance as possible.
