Got a hold of some Riccia fluitans tied to the back of small traditional Indian earthen lamps (kinda like small cups with no handles only flatter) placed them in the foreground. Got a tiny carpet effect now.
Fish: bought some form of dwarf pleco. They called them "Chinese suckers" at the shop. A pair of fresh water soles ( wish I had sand for them to lay about in). A few golden Danios. One male and two females each of guppies and siamese fighters.

So, in some way you're aquascaping your tank with the riccia fluitans? Nice! Show us a pic, please?

Emerald King , I wouldn't call it aquascaping yet... But may be when I've got some more Riccia... Waiting for the ones I've got right now to grow big enough to use their trimmings. I'll be posting some pics now.

Hi AA

Got a school of 20 Neon and 10 Cardinal Tetras and about 20 Red Cherry Shrimp. Added a few plants cabomba and hydrocotyle. Had to move the Bettas back to their bowl. as I didn't want to lose any of my new additions. Also got a submersible LED that I've placed for the plants at the back. My lights and CO2 are running on a timer now.

ID:	255891 I know. This doesn't look very natural. But its made of earth and I'm hoping the moss grows all over it to finally give a near natural appearance for the "cave"
