I decided to redo completely this 5g tank i had.. that condition above is no more. drained the water out and stripped it bare again.
here are the things I've got laying around:
1. ada soil
2. shirui sand
4. couples of crypt
5. that wooden branch
6. black stones
i'm currently thinking of this scape below, what do you think?
I am also thinking to add mosses to the rocks but not really sure
what kind of mosses are super hard? (tank will be low tech, no co2, no ferts except fish poos.)
