Which ones did you want to see pics of specifically? All? The only one of mine that looks deadish is the mini pellia, it doesn't seem to be doing so hot. Mosses I have:

Xmas
Mini xmas
Flame
Taiwan
Java
Willow
Weeping
Fissidens
And one I can't think of off the top of my head.

I'm either going to get ramshorns or golden pond snails, they seem the most interesting. Anyhow, it's going to be a long time before this thread gets interesting.

Not much to update... my fissidens haven't shown much growth, but the 'mini xmas' and flame moss is growing fast. Retested the water...

Ammonia 4.0
Nitrite 6.0
Nitrate 20

So it's still leaching. I've decided to get the best deal of shrimp I can, rather than choose a specific color.

Yeah, a bit. Time for an update. Sooo the ammonia still hasn't finished leaching and the tank is a mess! I'm getting all kinds of unwanted fungal and algae growth... At least the moss is making progress (slowly).

Added some ponds snails and a guppy fry, however I'm not sure if the snails will be OK because the GH is sitting at a 0-1. I NEED an RO/DI system and GH raiser... Does the aquasoil lower GH? Will my snails die?

Unfortunately the pH is not as low as I would like, others' are around 4.5-5.5, but mine is closer to 6.4 Probably cuz tap is a ****ing 8.8+!!!

I need to reset this piece of crap. Here are current issues:

1. FIXED
2. Algae. Lots of it. Hair algae, mostly. I need some otos and amanos.

Update:

Things are finally getting better. Got an RO/DI filter from pwc for cheap, and it works so I'm happy. The driftwood was getting annoying cuz it's so big, so I cut it down to size - into 3 pieces. Lots of moss growth, but it's not as good as somewhatshocked's, dunno why. I'd take pics but I lost *ahem* I mean misplaced my camera. So no pics, sadly. Picked up 2 otos and an amano!

Params:

pH >6.0
Ammo >0.5
Nitrite 0
Nitrate ~20
kh >1
gh >1

The pH of the RO water is >6, is that correct? I CAN'T WAIT FOR SHRIMP!
