Don't really want it to sink. I think its cool, and my otos enjoy hiding under it. Its just something different. I also don't want to waste all that extra moss, lol.

I like the UG filter and large gravel. You might encourage the moss and foxtail for a nice fuzzy layout and see how the other plants adapt. the grass plant looks lie lileopsis brasiliensis..not too good with latin...that might be an interesting plant. just pull out the thread algae as it grows in and keep on top of it.

I use the undergravel filter to bring up all the nutrients for my stem plants. Not sure if it helps or not though. And thanks for the ID.

My LFS might be getting a few ghost or amano shrimp on Friday. Will either of these eat hair algae? I might check a PetLand up in Lansing and see if they have any shrimp, as I have never been there before.
