today i added some moss and covered with cling wrap. ive been spraying another tank with a water/ flourish comp mix so ill use the same bottle to spray this. added some peacock moss and willow moss.





i want to find a large quantity of fissidens to get started on one of the pieces of wood. still not quite sure what else yet. maybe some blyx japonica for some foreground. im not doing hair grass again, to much trimming for me.

Really loving the scape so far. Nice wood and loving the seiryu stones.
Blyx Japonica would look amazing, go for it! It's actually a new fav of mine, just not able to grow it myself atm. My tank is low tech... being a newb n all figured it'd be best, baby steps, lol...

Any idea what kind of fauna you'll be putting in?
