5.5 gallon

Hey guys. I just redid my 5.5 gallon tank and was wondering what people thought. Any tips would be appreciated. I don't know what to do with the Philippine Java Fern, I just have it sinking together. Also, should I gravel vacuum the moss carpet?? is that possible? (Sorry for the poor camera pics)

Plants are:
Philippine Java Fern
Taiwan Moss
Anubias nana
Anubias petite
Algae Ball
Anacharis

Substrate? How would that work? The moss would attach to the gravel underneath...

Tank could use some more plants.As for your question, you could just swish the moss carpet in used tank water to clean it.

Maybe consider adding some java fern to fill in a little more since you don't have any substrate in your tank. Is there a reason you don't have a complete carpet of moss?
