thats a good idea and one i was going to use for the left corner but the wood started to mold. i was thinking a red plant like rotala or something, probably a rooted plant though because my tank isnt very tall

so, would the regular baby tears(the ones in the top left corner) grow like a carpet with enough light? (i presume it would, just wouldnt be as low as the hc)

well, it hasnt been very long yet, but i felt like posting a small update, i added a "pot" (bottom of a water bottle) with eco and hairgrass in it to see how it grows immersed (just realized how to spell this i think, oh well) i put in in the pot so it wouldnt invade anything and so i could take it out later

I just read in the july issue of "Tropical Fish Hobbyist" that bark on that twig you had is prone to mold, and they recommend using wooded that is stripped of its bark and hard layer. I think that advice came from Takashi Amano himself.

yes i know, i had put it in there for an idea on where to put it, and forgot to strip the bark (though i think that the mold in my case was because there was no air circulation in my tank) , actually, today, i went gathering twigs off of some of my oak trees and stripped the bark off of it and just arranged it in a nice looking way, i think. when i get my moss i will probably redo this tank. (oh, and what do you mean by hard layer? the new xylem under the bark?)

no, i do not dose anything, my light is a 27 watt home depot light that was only 20 bucks

boil the wood and the bark usually just slides off, depending on type of course.
