First week of January started dry start method on the moss betta cave with fissidens fontanus using yogurt method, spayed 2 times daily with aquarium water

Second week of January setup the tank

* mineralized organic potting soil
* ADA Amazonia cap
* Dwarf hairgrass & s. repens to be planted this weekend
* The yogurt from the moss smelled like a sewage system for a couple weeks

March 19th 2019 - flooded the tank and added CO2 to ease transition to immersed growth, probably could have continued DSM for a little longer

Finally added some shrimp to my dirtied tank. Seems to be coming along fine. Had some melt after flooding and now some new growth. Need to make / find a lid for this 10g before I can put our betta into his new home.

Would need a cutout for the hob and the aqueon lid has that plastic hinge right where the light would be.
