Scape looks nice so far.

Any particular reason you're using CO2 in a tank that's just moss? If you're concerned about lighting levels, you could use window screen to dim things.

Can't speak for him but I know that AFA in SF told me that CO2 and moss make a great pair. They do so low light setups but very high tech with just moss, or did last time I was in.

This is terrific already! Love this sort of simple scape - even when people don't use some sort of "carpet" to cover up substrate.

Have you considered adding a black background so the equipment disappears?

Looking forward to watching things develop. Great little tank.

Looks awesome! The rock is developing into a moss mountain, I like.

4/11/13 Updates:

Mini L -
Not doing so well, getting a lot of green hair algae and some brown algae on glass, reduced lightning and co2 period from 8hr to 6hr, weekly water changes. If that doesn't work, ill probably try out API Algaefix (currently, there's no live stock in this tank)




The 4g Cube at work -
Its been a month since fill, and the growth has been great.

Live stock: 12 Blue Velvet shrimps and 1 cardinal tetra (had 2 jumpers!)

Ordered a set of 9mm aquaticmagic lily pipes, a few Rotala Colorata and Rotala sp. 'butterfly'.




Got one of my co worker into planted tanks ^_^, his 2.5g mini s style -

Are you dosing Excel? If not, that will kill off the hair algae; I had the same problem with some of my dwarf baby tears early on but was able to get it taken care of with a bump in CO2 distribution in the tank during the day coupled with dosing Excel daily.

It took about 6-8 day to get rid of about 90% of it.

The moss in your 4g looks so lush! Nice job bringing others into the hobby.
