I would suggest that you move the thermometer to the other side of the tank, or move the heater to the other side ... next to each other, the thermometer won't be as reliable - when the heater is on, it will spike up higher. A tall piece of driftwood would look great standing up on the heater side, and then a java fern or anubias could be tied to it to help hide the heater!
Those moss balls carry a lot of bacteria with them ... and if you bought that driftwood already sunk from the pet store, it probably does too. Not a surprise you're already seeing nitrates!
hehe i hope i don't kill them! i really love the half moon look too
it fits against a wall perfectly.. i'll move the thermometer away from the heater asap!
i didn't know moss balls carried a lot of bacteria, i got two because they look so cute!
the driftwood wasn't used previously i don't think.. it didn't say.
great idea tekk! when i finish cycling my tank i'll play around with my driftwood and anubias
i'll probably buy a couple more plants by then too.. kind of obsessed with the planted tank idea after seeing such amazing photos of them on here
