alright this is my Betta's 2.5 gallon all glass home. it stands now with nothing but driftwood Anubias Nana and Java Fern. oh and that green blob in the back is a chunk of Christmas moss. bit of left over after adding some mosses to my 20 gallon. i am planning a re-scape, and i would like to take the time to share my thoughts and look forward to contractive criticism.
i would like to remove the anubias and the java. that leaves me with a bear piece of driftwood to work with. you can see from the next two shots what i have to work with the driftwood.
i will be adding Rotala Rotundifolia to the back as a bit of back drop, or put it in one corner and add another plant to the other corner. I'm not sure what to add if i were to go the second route. i would like to keep the same basic shape of the Rotala, but maybe more green. anyone have any suggestions here?
as for the piece of driftwood i would like to add a moss to this. I'm undecided on which type of moss out of the three i have to add. here is what i have and why i like them.
1. Christmas moss, this is the first choice as i already have some spare in the tank already i would just tie it to the wood instead of floating it. i think the darker green of this moss would give a nice contrast to the pinky red of the Rotala.
2. flame moss, i just absolutely love this moss. looks so cool, and has a sort of darker green to give a little more contrast again. it would look pretty interesting with the shape of the wood as well.
3. Singapore moss, a fairly nice light green moss. might bring the look of the Rotala more into the over all appeal more. if that makes any sense.
the final step is going to be adding some HC to the foreground after i get a second light. currently one 13W "full spectrum" PC light is all i have. in fact its the only equipment i have for the whole tank. but thats going to have to wait as I'm in college, just moved to a new city, and am still looking for a part time job.
so this is where i employ all the nano experts and the makers of all those gorgeous nanos I'm always seeing, to leave me some thoughts and constructive criticism on this tank.
