I'm still hesitant on the Belem as it requires CO2 and Ferts for it to actually spread decently... It'll be as slower than the fissidens. But that's just what I'm guessing. Anyone got any experience growing 'Belem' without CO2 or water column fertilizing? The only source of ferts they would receive would be from the aquasoil.

I've already moistened the soil, just to give the bacteria a head start or start emersed as an option.

Finally got around to fill this nano up

I'm starting to be more and more hesitant about using a full Fissidens fontanus carpet. Livestock will probably consist of Boraras brigittae and Corydoras Habrosus. Thoughts?



Edit - Water should clear up within a few days.

Wow, finally, lol. I agree, toss the full fissidens idea and just use it around the rock, using either riccia or glosso as a carpet (if you ask me )

I've actually decided to go with Mini Fissidens (so it'll look proportional) and C. Parva.

Riccia would go crazy and I don't think glosso would go well without any CO2. Which ill probably use eventually in the future.

Spent a little under 3 hours yesterday tying some Mini Fissidens onto some SS Mesh. Here's the result:

Might have to bend a few pieces for them to hug the substrate more.




Didn't get the very back because it isn't really visible and I ran out of moss. I might reserve that last spot in the back for some C. Parva.

It was definitely a PITA but hopefully it'll be well worth it once everything grows out.

Any suggestions as to plant in the back?

I used two golfballs, thanks Chad!

Had to ration out a bit of each of the 2x2" pieces to get the last few small ones in there.

Its not that bad when it's winter break and you have nothing else to do and you've already tied tons of pieces before

Lol, nice man. Must have been a PITA to cut that mesh! This tank should look pretty amazing filled in. Good luck!
