10 gallon rescape

I decided to rescape my tank. I added driftwood that I wrapped in Java Moss and one Anubias Nana Petite. I added ADA stone, I had around, to the bottom of the tank. There was a small outbreak of brown and blue green algae, after I moved around the plants, but plants are now beginning to grow in after some time and adjustments.

Before I came up with this design I thought about not using the rock but trimming an outside inch or two of dwarf hair grass and adding decorative sand to form an island composition. The tank is beginning to look nice in person with very clear water so maybe just wait and see? Any comments are welcome. All the best, john

That is a 10g to be proud of John. The island look would have probably been great too, but how do you argue with that carpet? I am very new to plants, but have a 10g that I'm learning to grow in right now. Cant wait till I can try and create something like this.

How did you attach the moss to the wood? I've heard so many mixed reviews of super glue vs fishing line. Always looking for another opinion.

Thank you both for your comments, much appreciated. On the moss question, ADA sells a thread for this purpose. I used ordinary brown cotton sewing thread. I will remove the thread in several weeks and hopefully the moss will have attached to the wood. All the best, john

Really nice color. That crypt is a beaut. What kind is it?

Are you planning on any livestock?

Very nicely done, John.

Thank you Discusluv for your comments. The plant you are asking about really does look like a crypt but it is actually a type of Alteranthera Reineckii. As far as livestock, this aquarium has been going for just under a year now. I started with three Ottos, that have braved all of my rescaping. I added six pencil fish and then a Betta from Petco. The Betta and the Pencils didnít hit it off so I gave the pugnacious Pencils to Petco. All the best, john

I'm jealous. Seriously! I'm trying to get that same carpet in my 10 gallon. It's not doing all that much right now. In the near future I want to move the tank and add CO2. I just don't know when that might happen. Love your tank though!
