    Hey everyone, I am back again, and going to attempt my first moss(christmas) wall, as well as microsword carpeting. I tried dwarf hairgrass in this tank but it collected a ton of green hair algae. It seems to be very prevalent in this tank. Probably due to the 30W lighting on the 10galons and...
