I was saying use some pins every few inches for it to attach to. Where there is a will there is a way.

I saw somewhere where the guy had mosses growing on pieces of bark that he then pinned to his background. He did it so he could experiment with different kinds and move them if need be.

Update on where my tank is at.

My order of Flame, and weeping moss along with my needle leaf java ferns and a few mini marimo balls I ordered on 12/3 from aquatic magic, finally arrived after taking over a month. (they were in the mail since the 13th -tip dont order internationally thru usps during the holidays) Surprisingly they came thru alright, the weeping moss turned a bit yellow, but i think it will bounce back.

Still trying to figure out this new camera its a 12MP but i still cant work out how to get pictures much better than my old 5MP

not thinking before taking pics, I just fed em so my substrate is a bit dirty till they clean it up.

Edit: wow didn't realize my substrate was so uneven, gonna have to fix that

FTS

Those are the smallest Marimo I've ever seen. But it is looking good, the driftwood and the plants on it particularly nice

Hey did you get your shrimp yet? D&G had a bunch of red or black BumbleBee Shrimps for under $3 each. Or if you are really set on low grade Crystals, Aqua Imports has them, but they are $9... so you are really better off getting the Bumblebees or getting them shipped from a hobbyist.

finally found a place selling crs's A's for 2 bucks and S's for 3, picked up 15 A's to start with since ive never really had CRS. looking a parameters im running now they should be fairly happy.

my weeping moss is finally starting to bounce back and giving me growth on the tips, i was just about to abandon it.

ran out of filter floss so i stole chumlee's nylons prefilter

That's pretty cheap for S grade shrimp isn't it? Was that someplace local?

Thanks

^ that i dont know never done glosso, i think it is more of a higher light plant, think it would grow real "leggy" with the one.

my marsilea minuta is just now finally throwing out runners and its a lower light plant
