I think this is greater duckweed (Spirodela polyrhiza), it looks far too large and the leaf shape/root system looks different.

The hairy root system belongs to the Salvinia, can't actually see the duckweed well in this picture (there's only two floating inside)

Nano tanks below 2 gallons only, I love a challenge

I'm still trying to figure out whether I want to throw some floaters in here:

@AcidGambit I wouldn’t do floaters if that were mine. Right now, my eye’s focus is on the rocks, small details, and varied textures in the lower third - especially the bit of rock jutting out from the moss/algae left of center. Floaters would pull that focus up and out of balance.
Looks awesome, well done.

I can only grow plants when they're completely under water. Everything else is doomed.

Thank you! Somehow I hard forgotten about the space between the two main rocks and freaked out when I couldn't find my Betta. I called my wife in to help me figure out what might have happened (fearing I had a jumper), then he came charging out of the space.

Hi all, somewhat new to the hobby, less than a year. Learned alot from the plantedtank forums so far! But forgive me if theres still alot I dont know ... Not sure if you distinguish between a jarrarium vs a pico tank? Here's my one gallon setup in an old glass kitchen container. Added an led desklamp and bubbler, scaped partly with leftovers and culls as well as bb culture from my 5 gallon. Now houses 2 ramshorns and 2 red rilis. Surprisingly well cycled and stable, though I think ammonia may be slightly above 0 (hard to tell with API sometimes depending on lighting) An experimental project for now I'm keeping a close eye on it. Last pic here is a smaller jar probably less than a litre.

Thank you! Yes, I used marimo moss balls. The middle of the balls are essentially hollow, with a flat surface opposite the "hairy" part. Many of the pieces on the left rock are jammed into crevices in the rock with a touch of super glue. The moss on the top of the right rock is super glued to the flat surface on top of the rock.

I had an arrangement of .05 - .25 gallon tanks, but I let them all go, and without constant supervision they are now moss only tanks . Anyway, since I grew out my Geos and put them in my 55, the space and time that went to my 10 will now go to revitalizing my picos! Just curious about how well pothos does underwater like that.

That tank is beautiful!! I had never thought to flatten out a moss ball to create rock cover, that's clever.
Does the bubbler add too much oxygen though? I'm super new and still learning.

Yes, it's a marimo moss ball that I ripped apart.
