2 gallon RCS tank "forest's edge"


Hi guys, here's my other tank that I have on my desk. I set it up so I have something to look at while my iwagumi is filling in



It's a 2 gallon? might be a 2.5 but doesn't look as tall as other 2.5's that I've seen.

I "de-rimmed it" but only the front panel, I used to have a cover on it so the side and back rims helped keep the cover on.

Here's some specs

Filter: Azoo nano hob filter
Heater: hydor flat heater
lighting: 14w 5500k CFL
Ferts: Excel, Do! Aqua be green, API leafzone
substrate: play sand with some ada aquasoil where the plants are.
Fauna: 20 RCS
3 neon tetras (will be removed when I get CPDs
4 Oto's (this is a holding tank for them while I set up my 20gal Iwagumi)
2 mosquito fish fry (will transfer back to main tank soon, just wanted to have something to look at for now)

Flora: ok, i might be in trouble here, I don't know the names of anything in here other than the anubias nana.

I got some moss from the sfbaaps swap, which is tied to a rocks and the manzanita, but i got 3-4 types and they all got mixed up, and I can't tell the difference between the types anyways.

There's also 2 types of stems, again, I don't know their names, I just heard "easy to grow" at the swap and snatched 2 cuttings.



If someone could tell me what those are, it'd be great.

And last picture



This is my semi-auto dosing/ top off set up. I have excel, do!aqua be green, and api leaf zone mixed with water inside the cd spindle case, which is fed into my tank at the rate of 1 drop every 30 seconds using a drip regulator

Tell me what you guys think, any input is greatly appreciated!

edit:
ok not last picture, here's one of my shrimp, a big ol female, hopefully she'll be berried soon!

great tank! it'll look awesome when that moss fills in. I think that stem is some kind of rotala. I can't really tell what those other ones are.
