Bomba I mean more is less when it comes to species of plants, not to exceed more than 3 in one aquarium or then it looks to mish-mashed in my opinion :) I agree a moss wall sounds really cool ! Esp. with some driftwood and some java fern attached to it.

Oh, rightio. :) In a small tank, yes, I have to agree with that - more plants of fewer species looks better than a couple of strands of lots of different species. :)

Thanks for letting me tag along. I'm going to google how to build a moss wall tomorrow. I'll let you know what I find out. I've only ever used easy to grow low light plants in my aquariums in the past, but now that I have time I want to experiment with new things.

Definitely agree with Bomb. Less not always better! I have 4 plants (going to get more) in my 2.5 and it's doing great. Just beware as many people have said planted tanks are addicting! Once you start you can't stop!

LOVE the idea of a moss wall in a 2.5 that just sounds so pretty!

At the moment I'm just using cheap petsmart gravel. I have a java fern which is doing fine in the gravel (got new shoots sprouting up from the gravel) and a dwarf lily which is doing great. I also have an anubias nana tied to a rock and hornwort floating and a bunch tied down. I let some anacharis float along the top.

I looked up how to build a moss wall & watched a few youtube videos on it. It's so easy I almost feel silly that I had to look it up, lol. It would look great in a 2.5g. Maybe this weekend I'll pick up some supplies.

Imo Fill that tank full of plants you'll lower the risk later with a big algae bloom learned that the hard way years ago. Youll still get algae no mater what but with a lot of plants means less excess nutrients for the algae to strive in. I think if I remember it right someone can chime in if I'm wrong
