Use a mesh or screen to make a moss wall.

Looks very nice much bigger than a 10g.

Thanks, guys! I used Gutter Guard for the wall. I just cut the pieces to size, put the moss in between, and tied it up. Like FishNewb said, any type of mesh or screen should work fine. It takes a couple months to fill in, though. This thing has been part of this tank since the early summer.

Here's a quick update. Things have filled out a bit. Unfortunately, the CRS and green shrimp have all died without breeding. I added 3 Celestial Pearl Danios temporarily until I move them to a new tank. They seem to be very happy so far. Let me know what you think

How long did you have shrimp in there? This is pretty much my idea for a 20L. Well, not the scape, but CPD's and shrimp

I've had cherries in here since the summer. The others were added in the fall, but all ended up disappearing after a few months. They died one by one over the course of a few months. I added the CPDs right before break from school. They seem to work well with the shrimp, as the population continues to increase

I am setting up a 10gal shrimp after reading your thread but thinking of using 70w HQI for lightning. Do you think that is too much for a 10g?
