never thought i would do a journal, but i was looking back at my pic from the first month and thought i would share to you all! this is a 10g that is equipped with EHEIM filter, 2X 28W Coralife Aqualightcompact, Flourite substrate, and a DIY CO2.
it was originally a community tank, but when i saw mr. Al's thread on his mosscape, i was motivated! the fish were moved to my 45ish gallon tank later on, and i did a total renovation.
presently in this tank:
fissiden fontanus (which is in a bunch, still havent found the perfect rock)
java moss (in a bunch as well)
anubias bateri (which has been growing on my driftwood for over a year)
baby cherries (yay, finally!)
handful of ghost shrimps
'bamboo/wood' shrimps (one of which is gigantic, might i add)
from the cam's date, this was taken on Feb 19.
the newly renovated tank with the 1+ year old anubias w/ 5 bananas which are slowly dying from the last tank setup =( at this point, i hadn't bought the EHEIM yet, recession mode
month later, 3 bananas died. one blooms like mad - was curious to see how big it would bloom, so i stuck it in a crevis of the driftwood. bought a new piece of driftwood for the flame moss. the other end with java fern. and lastly, my poor attempt on a moss rope with the fissiden thats braided with twine - was unhappy with it so its in a bunch til i find a rock.
this is what it is presently. flame moss is growing rapidly (just in time for the baby cherries). with the current, all the filter-shrimps gather in one area - thought it was cool to take a group shot (3 bamboos, 2 vampires)!
vampires are hidden underneath the driftwood, ill get better pics soon!
