    nice tank !

    top right: am maybe some microsorum trident or sp mini, eleocharis sp (de middle size one), or a nice crypt.. betcki or wendtii
    left: maybe come crypt parva or some eleocharis parvula.

    in the center, eleocharis sp mini,.... convining eleocharis could give a grate effect, you can also add somo althernantera r.mini for a red touch.

    I'm following this :D !!

    I like, subbed to follow your aquatic nocturnal adventures. I'm the same, don't sleep much, tend to only sleep every other day :lol:
    I also like the tank, its a neat little setup.

    Water cleared out to day. But still a bit dull. Will keep it with high co2 levels for a week or two. Then slowly will decrease til safe for shrimp

    Do you know what the main mosses you used are? It almost looks like it is above water, like an aged piece of wood in a forest.
