My mosses range from fissidens to mini pellia to mini Xmas. I just let them do their thing.

I'm big on finding a good balance between lights stocking and plant types so minimal maint is achieved.

The waste becomes all the ferts I need.
You couldn't have put it any better. I heard in the newer tanks, the glass doesn't have that slight green tinge and its super duper clear.

I love that about mosses. However, I noticed the mosses that I have that are in shady parts tend to die off. The ones that get light seem to be doing very well. So I'll just plant a few Anubias' in the shadowy areas.

I didn't know that waste could become ferts. I remember seeing people taking their gravel vac and sucking up every bit of whatever was in the gravel, completely. I guess when you think about it, it's like cow poop, goes back as fertiliser.
