An excellent algae is the bristlenose pleco. Only gets to be about 3-4 inches long but constantly eating algae. I recommend feeding all algae eaters supplemental food as well, like algae wafers,...

Like the others I've got to recommend not trying to grow a java moss cover like that. My friend grows riccia on stainless steel plates and it looks fantastic. Either way it will require some trimming.

I like the start that you have already. That amazon sword is going to fill up the left side of the tank nicely. If it's just the normal variety, e. bleheri I think it is, then you will have a real...

I bought about 10 ghost shrimp and they didn't last one day in a tank with rosy barbs and blue gouramies.

May want to try ghost shrimp and see if they are eaten. Very similar size, shape, etc. so...

As long as your canopy isn't excessively heavy I think it should be fine. I have found that aquarium glass is quite thick and strong. The other day I accidentally dropped a wooden frame (made of...

Amanos or cherry shrimp are interesting and will do a good job with any leftover food or algae that grows in the tank.

I have a 72 gallon that will have a double bulb 4' fixture. So 80 watts from that and a 24" 55 watt PC fixture. I'm wondering if I should put the 80 along the front of the tank and the 55 at the back...

I consider 2 wpg to be moderate light, but don't expect the most intense reds at this level.

Also don't put too much emphasis on what the light level for many plants says. They are just a rough...

More Difficult Plants

I have had good success in my 35 and 25 gallon tanks with easier plants like ambulia, java moss, dwarf sag, anubias, crypts, etc. Soon I'll be setting up a 72 gallon bowfront and really want to go...

Dan save your money, don't bother wasting it on Flourish ferts. For under $10 you can get enough dry fertilizer to last you for years.

Check your yellow pages for a hydroponic store near you....

Great start to the tank! I am planning on trying some hairgrass very soon in my new tank so hopefully you can keep us updated on how it is doing.

Should grow well, I've found it isn't a very light demanding plant. It will grow slower if light levels are very low, which I have had it in as well. Will appreciate gravel ferts.

Java moss is about the only plant that I find a bit annoying. My tanks aren't high light and I don't add many ferts so growth isn't fast or out of control.

I use them around my crypts, vals, sag, and swords. I think basically any plant with roots in the gravel will take some nutrients from them, even stem plants that absorb through the water.

Plants on Wood

When plants are attached to wood (java moss, fern, anubias) does this mean they feed off nutrients in the water? Will adding ferts help to speed their growth, even if I'm not injecting CO2 or...

I like that background too. Sounds like it was a good deal. I'd say you definitely have enough eco-complete. You are not supposed to rinse it or anything, hopefully you know that already.
