Hi, I am a beginner/intermediate aquatic hobbyist from the good ol' USA. I joined this site in order to seek wisdom from experienced fishtankists, and maybe after i get some experience, I can offer my advice as well. Nano tanks are my thing. The smaller and more intricate, the more appealing it is to me, but I do like bigger tanks too.

My current set-up:

Fluval Spec V 5.6 gallon Nano Tank

Hardscape: Flourite Dark, misc. dark stones, Malaysian driftwood

Critters: Pygmy Cory Cats, an otto, amano shrimp, thai micro crabs, nerite snail

Flora: Dwarf Pennywort (Hydrocotyle Sibthorpioides), Windolev Java fern, Glossostigma, Dwarf baby tears,ludwigia repens, rotala indica

My previous set-up:

8 Gal. nano tank, 5 Espie Rasbora, 5 Chili Rasbora (super-tiny fish=no overstocking), 1 Bristlenose Pleco, Ghost shrimp, Red Cherry shrimp, 2 "Blackberry" shrimp, 1 Amano (Algae-eating) shrimp, 1 "Hairy" Trumpet snail, 1 Black Olive Nerite Snail

Lace Java Fern on driftwood, Java Moss on rock, Ludwigia Repens, Rotala Indica, Cardinal Plants, Dwarf Red Lily, Duckweed, duckweed, duckweed!

Java moss vs dwarf baby tears

Posted on December 19, 2013 at 7:45pm 4 Comments

I am trying to establish a carpet of HC (dwarf baby tears) and somehow, some java moss found its way into my tank and attached itself to some wood just above my HC. Any suggestions on how to keep the moss from overthrowing the HC? I have pretty much just been picking it away with tongs piece by piece so far.

Will my glosso survive?

Just got and planted some new glossostigma. The problem is it came very pale. It is not mushy, but it just looks pale and slightly chlorotic...
I have high light and DIY co2 + flourish excell.
Do you think these plants will survive?
