Really nice rocks! I like how you laid them out too. And it's just gonna be straight UG in there (besides moss)? That's gonna look really cool!

I was looking at that same light and tank to grow a carpet. Interested how this is going to turn out.

I love those rocks! You're right they didn't look like much on the towel but setup they look great.

It's a pain in the BUTT! AnotherHobby did it alittle better job than I did with using PVC to make stands. Eggcrates only raise an hardscape up by 1/4th of an inch - so my rock on the far right took about 8 or so to get it close to the water line. It did make my rocks more stable but cutting holes into some of them to make them a bit more stable was the worst part.

I believe it did save some substrate for me only using one 8.8lb bag of fluval plant stratum (but the eggcrates at lowes cost $14 so it's a wash out)

Sweeeet rocks and layout. Do you think twigging a small tree together would work with the rocks somehow, somewhere? The tank looks like it might be too shallow for that though. A tree would be a good use for the moss. You could do a moss carpet, but that will look kinda ehh IMO. Thanks for linking my thread too

Yeah I think I'll be using your moss in my fluval edge - need to find some underwater superglue (can't pull the driftwood out) and glue it on place. I tried contacting PC1 and never got a response back (wanted to get manzanita branches) Would of had a field day with your moss on wood =)
