Any Ideas on plants or hardscape?



The tank is about the size of a 45-P
Any advice on the plants to use and where is appreciated. Right now I have fissidens fontanus, flame moss, and some hc ready to be put in, just not exactly sure where I want the mosses to go.

From reading the forums, HC is a really good plant for dry start method and you can even get the HC to stick onto the rocks. I believe you can put a small layer of soil on the rock and set the HC on top and it'll root itself. Correct me if I'm wrong. I've never done DSM before.

I had some flame moss tied to a rock. I used cotton string and it dissolved over time. My flame moss grew along the entire top of the rock and it was pretty tall. Maybe it can go somewhere in the back?

I definitely want a dense carpet of HC, and I have been debating using DSM or immersed. I am kind of leaning toward immersed because I'd rather enjoy my aquarium while it grows in. It seems like DSM isn't the best with visibility.

Your hardscape looks good to me.

love the look, honestly I think putting just a carpet plant like Dwarf Hair Grass will be enough. The rock should definitely stick out!
