Where are the fissidens mentioned in the OP? I don't see them in the photos.

Of course, it's sort of cheating to say you're not adding any ferts, since the AquaSoil Amazonia brings quite a bit to the table.
Sorry for the late response. The fissidens have not done well and are being taken over by the other moss. They are at the base of the mopani.

My light period is 8 hours a day, with a photo period split of 2 hours in the middle.

I will fiddle with my remote a bit when I get home but it's on a fairly low light custom preset I made.

Dawagner Exactly why I'm asking. I have the same setup and am intrigued by the no water change or fert.

Dawagner Love the tank! What setting are you keeping the Current LED+ on and what lighting schedule?

No dosing anything? Not even excel?

TexasCichlid 2015 Update - did my first real trim today, mostly moss removal and some java trimming. Top offs with RO only still. Still no ferts. Everything is happy.

mpooyan83 With the Current USA LED+, I am doing Microswords, which are very slow growing, after 6+ months its just starting to carpet the area it was initially planted in. I use eco complete for the substrate with root tabs every now and then, no Co2, once a week Seachem Flourish. Even tho it says the Lighting requirements are "High" its fine in medium light, just grows a little slower.

Here is the link for the plant:

Bump: weird.... everytime I hit "Go Advanced" so I can attach a pic of the how it looks in my tank, it "bumps" my previous post.

finally got it to work. So the top pic is maybe at 2 months, bottom at 6

I want low/no maintenance. I had the marimo over there but it eventually died off for some reason. Something slow growing but interesting?

TexasCichlid Little over a year later. I have not cleaned, trimmed, added fertilizer or changed the water in 8 months. This experiment was not born from purpose, but laziness I am afraid. That being said, everything is doing fine.

TexasCichlid Quick video showing the custom presets and RGB/dimming capability.

Jack Gilvey Wow! Now I want one!

TexasCichlid New light came in. Lots of fun settings. Manual settings are very bueno as you can manually adjust the RGB and the brightness of the white LED's. Very flexible for future if I ever CO2 or carpet the tank. Replacing the java fern with trident fern when it comes in.

I<3<*))))>< Love it, the shape of the wood is fabulous, and really loving the nana petite on it as well. Course I may be partial to that, hehe.
