Thanks for saying its awsome.
It really is my first, i read more about planted tanks specifically on this site that any one person should ever read before attempting it.
My gf will contest to that, she developed a personal rivalry with this site...

VERY nice! Shouldn't have said it was your first planted tank.. people would have thought you were a pro, LOL.

It's flame moss by the way. Fire moss may be a synonym though. :P

Happy holidays.

I don't mean to denigrate what your set up is by comparing it to mine, but i think we are very similar... I like your setup a lot.

Wow I can't believe this is your first planted setup. I have done quite a few over several years and yours is nicer than mine are.

I really like the non-conventional use of the stones and the driftwood.
