Also, the Fluval light screw just has to be loosened some, not fully removed.

The AWM is in my Spec V. I also purchased Asin Water Moss which is a much smaller floater, with the roots growing an inch. It has easily tripled in a couple months. I have that In my small Spec. I have to take some out now and then as it will cover the surface.

BTW, twenty is a lot, as they are very big. I bought nine, and they mostly covered the surface of the Spec V. I have a wide two gallon with Blue Pearl Shrimp that is now covered with the babies. And I have small third generation babies in another container. If conditions are good the multiply fast!!

Speaking of floating plants, has anyone tried Fairy Moss?

I should add that my DWL roots are 4 to 7 inches long. The original nine are the slightly shorter as it seems with time they self prune. The second generation are all on the larger end or getting there.

Floaters need to be cleared out some to give surface access for Bettas. :)
