I had a closer look and i can see a little green right under the plant,so i think it will just take some time.

I think i can see some new small roots in this pic,like you said they should grow and attach themselves to the rock .I like what you did can you use any piece of ceramic tile,say like from home depot,would that be safe .

I like the ceramic plate with moss....looks like something my Sparkle would like.

Will it fit in a 5.5 gallon tank?
What type of moss did you use?
Does the tank have to be "planted"?

Ahhhh....please give me all the details.

i used fissendens moss, it grows very slowly and is rather expensive for moss. i think it wasn't growing until i had it for 8 months and it adjusted to my water, now after almost 1 and a half years it doubled in mass. it's a pretty strong and stable plant, along with anubias nana i have on it. it would definitely fit in a 5.5 gallon, it's just 2x4 inches. i didn't use the stainless steel mesh because i was afraid it would snag on the fins, i instead used sewing string to hold the moss in place until it rooted :) all is good
