    Hello everyone! I've been working on adding more live plants to my 10 gal (currently housing a male betta and 2 cory cats) and wanted to know how to start a moss carpet. My tank has a gravel substrate and natural lighting. I found someone selling many different types of mosses (see list at...

    I have a ton of java moss in my grow out tank. I have seen people use SS mesh to tie down carpeting plant and moss. I think I have a good alternative for some people that can't find or don't want to use SS mesh. I had some plastic mesh that is used for fixing screen doors. This is a...

    I made an impulse cube purchase while at the LFS a few weeks ago. I feel somewhat crazy as I can't imagine maintaining yet another tank but the object of this tank is to make it as low maintenance as possible so, low tech, no CO2. I don't have a solid plan for this scape yet but do plan on...
