Yes it is the fine version, 10 liter bag was more than enough for this tank, got some left over for a nano tank when I get it.fish.com1 said:Looking good. Is the naturesoil the fine version?
It is indeed the mesh from aquaticmagic, but I didn't "sandwich" the moss between two meshes, I only used on mesh and stiched the moss the front of the mesh using cotton thread, this way you get an instant fill otherwise it will take months for it to grow through the mesh and fill in.glenn said:hey LD! just wanted to ask how you set up your moss wall? is it the same as what aquaticmagic sell- 2 peices of mesh with moss inbetween,cable ties and suction cups?
i want to give it a go in my 60L, it makes the tank look more underwater than it all ready is if you get what i mean
First time I did it was in sections on my main tank, and has I had more moss I kept redoing it bigger. When I did the wall in the shrimp tank I had enough moss to cover the whole thing in one go.glenn said:do you do the moss wall in sections or do you have enough moss to cover the whole wall right away?

Thanks, its flame moss, with some weeping and willow moss mixed in with it.nelson said:hi paulo,
looking good already.what moss have you got on the wood.
I am more interested in the water parameters it creates for the shrimp, not planning on keeping much in this tank other than low demanding plantssaintly said:if my tanks anything to go buy, the growth you'll get from the nature soil will impress you.
Its a Fluval Roma 90 cabinet, got it on ebay, was less than fifty quid delivered.Nick16 said:where did you get the cabnet?
Post on the wanted section someone might be able to sort some out for you.glenn said:lucky boy, i wish i have enough to do mine in one go
Tell me about it, its been a long time since I actually enjoyed looking at this tank again!!SteveUK said:Fantastic Paulo, I bet you're relieved to have that sorted out
Thought you would say that about the wood I am very pleased with the substrate, just have one complaint about it so far, its seems light so if the flow is high towards the substrate it moves it about. I have changed the flow paterns to see.aaronnorth said:looking good, the wood is nice I may try the substrate as i really like the look of it.
Yeah best thing I ever did, the substrate looks great, lets see how it does from now on, I am going to try a few plants here to see how they fair with only TPN+. Any time you want some let me know.Garuf said:Good to see you took the plunge. It's lovely. I'd bite your hand off for those shrimp if only I had a tank.
Yeah even I was suprised how many I had, but I don't think I managed to catch all the little tiny shrimplets, there here hundreds of those in the tank and water was too cloudy to spot them.hijac said:bloody hell, that's alot of shrimp.
Yeah I have sold, gave away, exchanged well over 400 shrimp since December. I accept exchanges for stuff too!!Superman said:and I bet he's sent a load too!
