The DSM has started. On one end I created a small mound of pebbles for the fissidens geppi. Geppi grows too slowly for the chopping technique to work so I placed the individual fronds carefully and misted with water from my EI tank.

Next I chopped up some fissidens fontanus, added a little milk for extra nutrients, and covered the background.

I'll add the other mosses as they arrive. I had some extra fontanus so I added a rock from another scape temporarily. No point wasting it.

This is with a 26w cfl and a small desk lamp. No algae issues with the DSM so might as well throw the lights and nutrients at it.

The plan is to flood in late November.

Sorry for the crappy pic - the forum doesn't support my phone's full resolution.
