Stoned [1g]

New scape in my 1 gallon tank. Dimensions are 8x6x6" or 20x15x15cm - 6mm optiwhite glass.
Stones are Glimmer wood rock. In front sand, back Aquasoil.
At the background i am going to plant Rotala sp. Wayanad and Fissidens sp. 'Dwarf' on the rocks.

Hardscape:



Fissidens on the rocks by yoghurt method, explaned here: New adventure "Hallelujah Mountains" [13g]



Tank is covered with piece of glass. Now i am waiting 2-3 weeks for fissidens to attach, then i will flood it.

Looks sweet Rasta! Does the graffiti moss method looking like it's working in the 13g?

Still no new growth, but i think it is to early. For a week or two it should be visible (if this works)

True, I hope it works. Are you blasting light on it as well?

Looks awesome! It looks a lot bigger and better than a 1 gallon! What do you plan on stocking wise? Just some shrimp?

True story:

I showed my brother a picture of this tank and asked him how big he thought it was (he isn't in the aquarium hobby though) and he said it was 40 inches (about 100 centimeters) wide!

Loving the hardscape Rasta, great as usual!

RCS and Boraras micros. Keeping those micro fishes in this tank for almost a year. No problems with them, you just need to change the water regulary (30-50% weekly).

This is well porportioned and further inspiration for a new mini build for me! Mine will be 5G though.

Even further intrigue to try the yogurt paste on the rocks.

This tank is still alive. Had better luck with Fissidens fox. Background is planted with Eleocharis acicularis and also there is some stringy moss that came with it. Today i drop some Red Cherry shrimps in...
