A very different approach, natural looking, almost eerie. Definately not an "average" setup. The wood seems to go with the moss and substrate very well. Good job.

where's the pelia?
looks very nice. i would remove the white stones though. it will make the substrate flow better

I think it needs a Bushy Nose Plecostomus to complete the effect: http://www.petsolutions.com/Bushy+No...001827-C-.aspx

very attractive setup. Did you manage to find those branches in your area? What kind of wood are they?

I like it a lot but I am also curious as to how it would look with black sand.

Pellia is on the small stone between two branches of biger part of wood.

I've tied mosses to wood using angling thread (0,14mm).

The branches are from natural peatbogs in Poland.

Very interesting approach. The feeling I get is of a quiet lake in a forest. They tend to have a lot of moss covered driftwood and sunken trees in them. It takes me back to the days of fishing in the UP of Michigan as a child.
The only thing that I would do to complete the tank is add something to the substrate to fill it out. Whenever I see bare ground in a planted tank, I get the impression it is not finished. I'm not sure what would complete this picture, but anything from crypts to hairgrass come to mind as possibilities.

Two 1 GA desktops, a 5 gallon, a 2.5 gallon, a 10 gallon, a 20 gallon, a 25 gallon, and two 75 gallon tanks, all planted.
I am an expert on algae, so ask me if you have questions. I know how to grow it, just not how to get rid of it.
