Thanks. The other 3gal started as just a piece of manzanita. Now it's a moss jungle. This one will grow out over the course of a few weeks. Fissidens should bush up pretty nicely and the Xmas Moss from Han is super-healthy and should grow quickly.

pH with RO and this substrate is pretty low. So it takes a good 3-4 weeks to be safe. I almost always run things longer to develop a nice environment for shrimp. The more goodies growing on surfaces, the better.

You seeded it with media, but you're waiting 5-6 weeks? Is that for extra safety measures?
