Judge my scape and sell me your moss!


Heres a new scape guys, what do you think? Not really going for a particular style, just something nice to look at.









Also, I need some moss and not the usual java... Really looking for Phoenix, Christmas or Weeping.

Thanks jimmy. The substrate wasn't super important for me since I plan on covering it with fissidens (thank you ryu1).

The stone is lace rock.

Thanks owen.

I was planning on putting the moss in the back corner on the right and then covering the rest of the substrate and parts of the rocks with fissidens.

@Jimmy, He's using Montmorllinite clay aka Safe T Sorb It actually buffers the water to 6.0 for awhile I heard 2 months, its really absorbant and will cloud up the water like crazy if disturbed, its really cheap too. 40lbs for 10 bucks.

Not feelin some of the rocks there.. the three on the left are good but some shifting maybe, either towards forward or back... but on the right, the two biggest rightmost rocks throws the eyes off a bit. Probably because the rightmose is leaning towards the outside while the one next to is is leaning so heavily in. Possibly turn it around orr...switch it with that left rock?

Those are lace rocks, no? They will raise the hardness of your water.

@Viva, so the rocks on the right shouldn't have that large gap?

@MF, actual lace rock is volcanic and inert. There are some rocks called lace rock which contain significant amounts of CaCaO3. I don't believe these to be those but I won't know for sure until I flood and monitor. I've already treated with acid and everything seems okay.

@aznrice, yep that's right. This will also be a test for the bigger tank.
