Mossy Hill (10 gallon)

Here's a new scape of mine for a 10 gallon tank

at first i tried to use extreme slope as you can see in the finished hardscape pic:

but then i realized that after i filled the tank the slope wasn't as dramatic as before


it's not finished yet, i probably gonna add a few plant later
some anubias here and there

what do you think?
any comment will be appreciated
thanks

Looks good. I also think some dwarf hairgrass would look good but then again I like dwarf hairgrass.

hi radioman, thanks
i though of that too before setting up this tank
because i also love hairgrass
but then i think if i plant hairgrass i'm gonna need more lighting and CO2

i currently use no CO2 and 23 watts of CF here inside a ceiling downlight:

I really like this!
I think it would look really good with something tall growing on the hill, I really llike the looks of the crypts in my own tanks but that's just what I would do to give it something different from the norm!

Good job and good luck!

Oh and fauna wise, I'm big into bettas, I think they are great fish with personality!
A nice big king betta, I think that's what petco is calling the big plakat type betta! Then he could be king of the mossy hill, and you might be ale to have cherries with him, it just depends =]

just a little update

added some marsilea
rearrange some of the anubias so it don't look like a parade
after about two weeks there are some moss growth especially directly right under the light
not much but i'm happy with this






one or two thread algae in the moss but everything else is fine
about 20 red cherries there but there's no fish yet

oh the stem plant (Bacopa caroliana?)
it's there temporarily to suck up any excess nutrients to prevent algae

One stem of bacopa won't suck up too much excess nutrients I don't think... Don't they come with a couple stems per pot?

Looking good, keep it up!

you can have DHG in there without CO2 and plant specific light is really easy to obtain at a hardware store just get 6500k bulb. Looks good so far! and at first i thought the pic with the betta was real and that your camera was just really sucky :P

Dwarf sag is kinda grassy! It can get taller in low light tanks though. But that might look good in the back!
