Need help with new scape

I just recently dorm a rockscape


I like the way it looks but i still have a bit of mixed feelings:/ and I was thinking perhaps the largest rock on the right of the pic could do some moss growing on it?

Some considered moss would be peacock miss or riccia? Any suggestion on easy grow moss/ferns that can grow and attach well on rocks?

Thanks in advance

any moss will grow on rocks, its just a matter of aesthetic preference.

i think you have too little plants. perhaps more carpeting plant on the substrate?

I'm currently working with Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo' in my Mini L without CO2, though using Flourish Excel. I'm not sure what the lighting levels are like on this tank, but maybe it would work for you as well. I've also seen moss carpets that look amazing, and are very easy to grow, if slow going. It wouldn't be too bad on this small sized tank at least.

I also cannot really tell from the photo, but make sure that the Anubias' rhizomes aren't buried in the substrate, else they may rot and die.

Feeling adventurous? Maybe check out my current

Is that a Finnex? I would get a HOB filter, to free up more space. And yea to more plants. And maybe a different color (grey) rock?

dwarf baby tears need tons of CO2.
