Yes, I certainly plan to. I am leaning towards a frosted glass adhesive, just haven't had a chance to do it yet.

Nice tank. No plans for CO2 or excel? I'm interested to see how your parva does. Fern looks out of place but that's just my opinion. Other then that, great scape.

No plans at all for CO2 or excel. Parva is doing well it just grows SO slow. I agree about the java fern, I plan to pull it out once I have a stem of blyxa I can plant in it's place.

Added more painted fire reds and a super tiger. Hoping to get more tiger shrimp in the near future. Moss is growing gang buster right now. Will post a new picture after the weekend.

I'll give it another month or so, if this tank still looks as fabulous, I might take the plunge.

Update

We have babies! Just spotted my first shrimp babies today. I have seen at least a half dozen and I am sure many more are loitering in the moss. Still have at least 5 more berried females as well. This colony should grow fast!

Moss has filled in nicely, and all other plants are looking great.







Shrimp ball! They love this food.

I swear my ramshorn eat pieces out of my java fern. Have you had any chunks missing from yours or specifically the new growth on the tips?

I have not noticed that. I only have 4 of them in there now, but I imagine with more they might turn to eating plants.

Your mosses are filling in so full and natural looking.

so you arent dosing ferts or using co2? wow really nice progress thus far. I think the cholla in the corner is a nice touch...

Thanks! I run purigen in the AC20 and that helps substantially in keeping the water crystal clear.

Yes, the moss is growing extremely well. I do not dose anything at all, just some Osmocote Plus under the substrate when I set up the tank.
