5g cube

Hello,

Any help or advise will be helpful. I'm trying to grow a carpet on a tank for my first time ever.

Specs:

5gl eheim tank and filter that came with the tank
Pressurized co2 (1-2 bps)
Finnex light
Seachem iron & potassium every WC
ADA aqua soil
Monte Carlo
Rotala (I'm not sure what kind)

The tank has been set up for about 2 days now.

Don't ask for advice. Ask for information, gather lots of information from different reliable sources. Then use the information to make your own advice.

Just wondering, are you going to putt anything on the wood?

Sounds like it'll be nice, keep us posted when you add em. I'd probably wait for the carpet to grow out, but I dunno if the moss cuts off the light the carpet may die off under it anyways. Maybe what's under will still get enough light to stay alive even if not spreading.
