On the whole cycling thing... bacteria needs its food brought to it. It'll grow on whatever, but if there's no water movement only a minimal amount of bacteria is going to be able to survive.

Plants are somewhat the same way... movement usually makes for better growth.

So a filter might not technically be necessary, but it (or anything else that causes movement) helps for reasons beyond filtration.

No filters in nature, but stagnant water is pretty gross in nature too.

Anyway, moot point now.

You should try a moss wall to see if you like it or not. Moss walls are pretty cool. And if it doesn't tickle your pickle, then you sell the extra moss. Win - Win situation I must say.

Man that thing is going to be growing out of control, nice! Where did you get the weeping moss and is that fission in the middle?

I got the weeping moss a while back from a member here on PT. That is fissidens in the middle, good eye. I removed the hygro from the right hand side, I am going to put something else there. Hygro did not fit.

cool, How is the fissiden to grow? Do you have it attached to a log or rock? If you ever get cuttings from either one let me know i would be very interested since I would like to have a wide variety of mosses in my tank. keep the pics coming as the growth increases and any details on the CO2 system.

Fissiden is the slowest growing plant that I have ever tried to grow. Its attached to a rock. I pulled out the hygro sp red out of the right background. It did not match the rest of the scape.

I placed 3 stems of Ludwigia sp. Guinea on the right hand side. I'll take a picture when it grows in. I hope it will grow well in this environment. The tank was pearling like mad today, pretty cool for something so small.

Great looking tank and progress. Where'd you get that sponge for your intake and how often do you have to clean it if it gets clogged up and reduces flow?

I've only cleaned it twice since I had the tank set up. I got the sponge from a fellow sfbaaps member. I am not sure where he got it from.

Possibly a stupid question, but: why did you choose male-only Endlers?

1 Endlers male + 1 Endlers female = 20 more endlers in about 30 days.
At least in my experience.
By having the same sex couple = 0 offsring.
