Super pimp! Is that Val or a sword variant in front of the moss wall?

Thanks! The mini moss wall consists of 5"x5" panels of door screen (for pets) it has wider openings, fish line and suction cups. I've cut each panel 5"x10" place moss in a 5"x5" section the fold in half. Then stitched it closed with the fishing line. Then poked holes for the suction cups.

Rather than a solid moss wall, it's moveable. My cherry shrimp love it. It's taken 3 months to fill in. Be patient.

I have 3 types of Vals, narrow leaf temple, red wendtti, water sprite, swords, java fern and lace, 3 other types of crypts, 2 types of anubias, moss balls and 2 plants I totally forget their names.

It's a 90gal, the left third of the tank isn't in the photo. I'm going to be adding Telanthera as a background plant.

Miraculously it's a non co2 tank. I only dose 7ml of flourish excel. The growth is minimal but the bright side is I'm not trimming weekly.
