The tank is experiencing an ammonia spike at the moment so all the inhabitants are elsewhere. Last reading was 0.50 ppm. Only added about 3 - 4 cups worth of ADA so hopefully things will be back to normal soon.

What does everyone think of the wood? It was bigger than I thought it would be. At first I tried it vertically, but it just didn't look right. I like how there is a mini cave for the shrimp.

Never had any moss either so maybe some for the wood? Also thinking of adding some of those thinner twisted branches at the back right corner. Perhaps arching over the top? Thoughts?

If anyone had tips on how to use Staurogene Repens as a carpet please share. I've never had a carpet plant before. The stems like to float up! Thank you Bien for the wonderful plants.

I'm loving the clover-like Marisilea. I'm not sure what kind this is.

Would like thoughts on what plant to put in the right back corner. I'm looking for something fluffy, but not Cabomba.
