    Yoghurt/moss dry start - going on vacation - can I leave it without spraying?

    Ok so update needed. The moss that was clearly in the yoghurt all died, but now the wood is covered in baby moss growing out of the wood where I put the yoghurt. So success from the jaws of defeat I guess :)

    Yoghurt/moss dry start - going on vacation - can I leave it without spraying?

    Yoghurt/moss dry start - going on vacation - can I leave it without spraying?

    Hiya, I got a yoghurt dry start for a moss-only tank going, I am two weeks in, and plan to go on vacation soon for two weeks. I can cover the tank pretty well, but was wondering if I need to flood it to prevent the moss from drying out and dying over these two weeks. Thoughts?

    wood suitability in an aquarium

    I have tried various wood for use in tanks. In my experience the wood will always rot unless the wood was either originally a piece of root (branches will rot) or if the wood was a branch and has had many many years to degrade in water, looking holey and leaving only the hard resistant bits...
