what plant? if you're talking about the anubias i didn't really attach it.
the roots were shaped in such a way that i just had to 'coil' it around the branches.
it was easy enough for me.

update: i think i'm going to be breaking down the nano palu tank for the vampire crab and restart this. any suggestions?
i'm getting an itch for simplicity so i may get one iwagumi rock and put in tons of moss.

update as of yesterday. i rescaped a while ago but waiting for everything to fill it. i've been in the process of moving the tree to front (which i did in the photo) which is why my glosso looks messy at the moment.

thanks very much! and yes that's a red tiger lotus.
i had it in my main shrimp tank before which is really low light i guess... it hardly grew and stayed that size for a month or so. I moved it to this tank and probably will take off now.

Nice update! I like the tree and the glosso, love that little cherry barb (a favorite) but do miss seeing those great rocks you had in there. It's a shame the sub doesn't hold a slope. I feel a little isolated because I use flourite and nobody else seems to. It does hold a slope for ages but just isn't as sexy as other substrates.

i find it fairly easy to slope fluval shrimp stratum when its moist, also you can place the rocks to aid in the sloping. It's also best to slighty moisten the substrate when planting which helped alot when i was planting baby dwarf tears in mine, other than that there's not much to complain about the substrate.
