I have seen small pots that are held to the back glass by suction cup, I think that they were sold on TPT forum.

I have to wonder if the cheapest and easiest way to add some "pop" to colors of your plants would be to add a dark background. It really can make colors stand out.

It's gonna be cool. I like the rocks in the foreground. You might tie them together a little more with a dark, solid background. It also sort of make the colors of your plants "pop". Nice job.

Bulb Changes

When you change out your fluorescent bulbs because of their age, do you change them all at the same time or do you do some sort of rotation. I ask because I've been doing a rotation but a friend who...

That is very low light. You might try some Bolbitis, or Anubias, or maybe some of the Cryptocornes. Some of the Java Ferns and mosses attached to driftwood look alright. If you were to try some of...

Mosses

How should you trim a big clump of moss? Do you rip it apart, tease it apart, wack it with a shears, or attack it with a cleaver? I don't want to destroy it, I just want it smaller. Thanks
