Looks a bit thick to be flame moss.
Love the fish Mark, my dad has some in his tank. Didn't realize how big they get though!

apparently about 7 cm. thankfully the scape will be over by then.

Not flamey enough for flame moss I don't think. Could be spikey moss perhaps?

It's spiky, it has 2 distinct forms dependant on conditions I've know it to be either really tall and straggly until it reaches light then it bushes out, this is only when attached close to something vertical or on wood. If it's on the substrate it almost always head up and up and up until you hack it back which encourages bushing.

That's a wonderful capture. Thanks, Mark.
thanks yet again George. i seem to be thanking you an awful lot mate :D

the moss seems to be such a great back drop in this set up. actually allot of the pics for this scape seem real dark and moody, in a good way. nothing like the previous scape.

the red eyes do play ball when it comes to photo time. each individual fish has its own space in the tank which makes it easy for photography and if another ventures into another's territory, it just shooos it away. then feeding time all hell is let loose.
