Here's my planted 55 gallon. I have dwarf red lily, pennywort, amazon sword, argentinean sword, red ludwigia, micro sword, and green myrio (aka Petsmart's "frill plant"). The only fish I have right now are 6 neons because I'm waiting for the tank to cycle.

Both! Sorry, I'll quit being a smart alek. Marimo moss balls are actually algae, not moss. That's the kind of algae that's taken up residence on my driftwood, I forget what it's called. The amano shrimp that's hiding in there somewhere and the nerites keep it all very nicely trimmed, so I've left it. I like the look.

I think the algae is actually from a marimo moss ball that I tore up in an attempt to get a carpet ages ago. So far I've gotten lucky, hopefully it won't decide to invade the rest of the tank.

New and Improved

Awhile back I had the algae issue. After doing 3 weeks of 2 25% changes a week and adding 2 types of floating plants (duck weed and forget the other) some anubias and two crossbreeds the tank is doing pretty darn good. Turk (betta) is building huge bubble nests and naps in the floating plant.

aokashi, is that a fluval mini light? i've been pricing out a 4 gallon cube setup exactly like that for my birthday in june all week! i'm dying to know how well the light grows plants. :o and how to set up a lid for it, lol. the moss and driftwood look awesome, are you going to plant more stems around it or carpet the whole thing in moss?

the light is fluval, but I'm investing in a 20w LED ceiling light ~
the tank is actually a rimless 10" tank from ADG.
the volume is 3.4 gallons, I'm going to make an acrylic lid for it ^_^

I'm going to go low tech, high light and carpet with HM. might have stargrass in the back, not sure yet. lol
