New pics of 29 gallon moss tank

Here are some newer pics of my 29 gallon RCS and Sulawesi shrimp tank. There is Christmas moss and Flame moss mostly along with narrow leaf Java fern and a moss wall. These pics are 3 months after starting the moss theme.

The other pics are of my 55 gallon fish/shrimp tank.

Hey that looks pretty sharp... I could spend quite a while in front of that tank. How long to do think it'll take for the wall to completely fill in?

With lots of trimming of the moss on the wall and the shrimps cleaning it, the wall fills out in about 6 months or so. The more you trim the fuller it gets. This will have been my 4th moss wall. The shrimps really like to get behind also as a hiding place.

There is a Sulawesi shrimp swimming in the second picture in the middle. I only have a few now, but two are preg. It's really different how they have their babies from the RCS. Hopefully in a few months I will have some for sale.

Hey sideburns!! Where in Maryland are you?

The "sticks" are Christmas moss "trees" that I like to grow. The can be placed in nano tanks or smaller tanks and still grow a nice piece of moss. Hopefully soon I will be selling them. The shrimp like to climb on them and keep them clean.
