Talking HELLO! I'm the new guy

Hi all,

I'm the new guy on the block. Im kind of new to planted tanks. My tank has been up and running for about 2 years now. I just recently started getting serious about plants and sense then have been in love with it.

This is a new set-up that i have gone with, i just changed things around yesterday. Well here's my set up. Hope you like it and looking forward to being a part of the community.

wow, the tank looks great, has that kind of misterious feel to it. What's that on the left, nylon bags of moss?

It's not nylon bag's, it's some kind of mesh thing i found at a craft store. I was searching for something to hold down my riccia one day and that's what i found. Works very well

I can't wait for all the riccia to cover the rocks. I'm thinking about adding some african root or a driftwood center piece.

I like the look. Very nice way of using the riccia in the hardscape. How long do you go before you do a trim (or redo the riccia nets?). I used to have it and found it grew too fast and was a major pita to redo every 2-3 weeks.

Re-boot!

Yes its all riccia. Thanks for the complaments guys, i didnt think it was that nice. I fill like i could do something better.

I do have to trim it like every 2 weeks but that's ok because i enjoy doing it. It's kind of like watching a kid grow. I just put the riccia on the rocks so i don't know how often im going to have to trim it in that spot, because it's closer to the light.

I was thinking of putting some african root in the middle right in front of the water wisteria. Do you think i should? I also was thinking of moving all the tenellus chain swords, do you think it would look better without it?

My friend has a 10g that i was think of putting all the chain swords in, can you believe i started with just two of them.

Tank looks great- I think if you add more stem plants in the back ground it'll look even better.

It looks like the bank of a stream. Soft and pillow-y. I just woke up from a nap...

Great looking tank. The ricca is beautiful.

I like the chain swords.
The wood might be a nice effect but i love this tank the way it is.
if you do to much stem plants in the back i think it would take away from the rest of it..
