I like it, it has a sort of "wild" feel to it! Perfect choice with the mosses, the shrimps love it! My shrimp also RELISH floating watersprite or probably floating plants of any kind! Might be a consideration for ya . . .

It looks nice ja. Can we see a closer shot of how you attached all the mosses? I'm sure the shrimp are enjoying it!

Wow! That really does look like a shrimp heaven! Though, I think I might go with a black or print background.

i like it but,...the slate rocks on the sides create "negative space" witch in turn draws my eye to this part of the tank.... then i started to note the diff angles.... this i think interrupts the flow of the tank ...........if you turn the rock up a little it should fix it..or add some plants to these spots...
this post is IMO so please don't take this the wrong way...
BTW.. i love the wild feel to this tank..

Nice... I am going to make a java moss wall with bubblers behind it (makes a great filter system) for part of my 55. How will you do yours? I am making a ladder like structure out of craft plastic mesh that will be easy to hook the moss onto.

That looks great, though I was looking for something a little more open so that I could see the bubbles flowing in the back here and there and the smaller fishies could swim through without getting stuck. The spiky edges I can just hook the moss on to two spots and won't have to worry about tucking or pulling moss through. I have used a smaller version in another tank and it seemed to work well.
