Hey everyone! Here's an update on the nano!
I ran the tank under water in my tub to flush out the cloudy water, it sat for a few days and stayed pretty clear.
Bought another light to shine through the back of my tank at the carpet.
Decided on using the dry start method (DSM) I've read its good for getting HC started.
I drained the tank started looking into getting my plants.
Found and awesome LFS close enough to ride my longboard to. The shop has a good selection of different rocks, driftwood, plants, fish, and lots of other aquascaping supplies. The owner was very helpful and had some good advice to share. Will definitely become a return customer! I picked up HC and weeping moss from his 1-2-grow display.
I split up the HC and planted it evenly, I also planted weeping moss in the tree using super glue. Not sure if its gunna hold well once i flood the tank but i have my fingers crossed!
Got the tank covered and my spray bottle ready, pokeda couple fine holes in the corners to let it breathe
Some questions for anyone following:
Does weeping moss grow well in DSM?
Is it possible to plant HC too deep in the substrate? My clumps are about an inch/inch and a half deep in some spots.
Would trimming the moss and the HC after a week or two encourage more new growth, and help it spread?
If i were to trim the HC during DSM, would the trimmings take root if i left them on the substrate?
Based on the pic did i start with enough moss to fill out the tree when it grows out or should i add more? I used four 1-2-grow cups worth.
If i glue moss trimmings on the tree will they grow out into bigger moss plants?
Heres a pic 3 days into DSM
