    I am wanting to set up a moss tank, i have

    2WPG
    daily dosing with TPN+
    pressurized co2

    Would this be to much for growing mosses, windelov fern etc, i am wanting a jungle look.

    What i want to know is if i would need pressurized co2 and daily fertilising? would a better option be to do weekly ferts and not to dose TPN+

    Thanks, Aaron

    Looking at how my moss has grown in my 2wpg tank I would say that you should go with it. Add some fast growers at first too to help with keeping the algae down. IMO, whatever plants you grow the fertilising and CO2 need to be balanced with the lighting. If you have good light you need CO2 and some fertilisation.
