    Hi Tony,
    it is nice to see a step by step and the final result.
    What happened to some moss pieces? Do you removed them or do they not survived?
    Any Fauna in there?

    Hello Jurik,

    Thank you…Some mosses grow longer and some didn’t survive … you know ….high temperature. I can’t do anything with this only to keep it as low as i can with the a/c. I think that the space of the tank is too small for fauna. I have only some small fly’s but i don’t know how did they get in ….:-?:Happy:

    Full tank shot pls. I like many others have bought some of these mosses and ferns and tried growing them submersed in vain. This is the right setup for them to survive to their potential. Looking forward to see how it evolves. Really beautiful!
