I think the scape looks nice, maybe just add a black background?

Tank's too small for a Betta...they need ~10 liters minimum.

But nice scape!

thinking of adding Oto, aka Dwarf Sucker Fish (Otocinclus affinis). will they gobble up the leaves of my plants?

No, they just eat algae. They are a good choice

hi, got it from my LFS. im from singapore. its easily available here. its by ocean free.

btw. if there is no fauna in there and i intend to add moss floor, will using small little doses of easylife profito and seachem's excel each week be an overkill for this setup? wanted to accelerate growth..

Nice looking little setup.

I've personally had better results cutting flame moss into 1/4"-1/2" segments, then sandwiching it between the mesh. It seems to grow in a lot fuller and more evenly that way.

i did a mini rescaping by cuttin the flame moss on mesh shorter (excess moss tied to cave-like coconut) and addin HC on the side. now ive been adding small small doses of excel daily and flourish weekly. temp 29-30c .



hopefully the HC will make it in this tank.
