That's how I started my 6" cube. Same set up except in the end I tossed everything and kept the light only.

Those Heterandria Formosa are tiny, would be perfect for the tank. I've never seen the Gold variety, post some pix when they are here.

I like your nano bogwood btw.

4" cube,

Xmas Moss and Small Moss Balls Arrived this morning.
Just finished planting it up.

MOss Balls were taken apart to create a carpet of plants.







Filter Planted with Java Moss and Xmas Moss on top, to provide extra filtration and something different.

Just finished Rescaping.
Red Tiger Lotus Bulb Arrived this afternoon while out shopping.
Planted a palm type plant that I like to use to add more above the water.
Made more open swimming area for the HF and removed any snails I found.

Looking great, I like the idea of breaking up the moss balls for a carpet. Never really liked just having a moss ball rolling around in the tank.
