DoubleT's 2.5g Moss Tank


This tank has been cycling for a week, and I just got some java moss today and attached it to some SS mesh screens. Once this tank has cycled I plan on putting my PFR culls in it.

Equipment:
*Hydor mini sponge filter(perfect for the 2.5 g)
*aqueon evolve light fixture
*2.5 gallon tank

Are you planning on just using java moss, or using a variety?

just java moss. for some reason I can't get any other moss to grow, other wise I'd probably have some peacock moss or spiky moss for the carpet

*Update*
Ok, I found out real quick that a lot of waste gets trapped under the java moss screens, so I decided to add course pool filter sand and take out some java moss screens. I also ordered a tom's mini internal filter for the tank to help with the circulation and stuff settling on the substrate.

So here is what the tank looks like now

Update
Tank finished cycling around the beginning of June added some MTS and malawa shrimp, also just added some subwassertang(front, left) and peacock moss(back, right) 3 days ago. For some reason the java moss(front, right) isn't doing too well
