    Seiryu stone mountain

    Just rescaped my Fluval Spec

    Waiting for tank to cycle...
    Waiting for #5 co2 tank hydrotest...

    I've been out of the scape scene for about 2 years.

    Any opinions/advice?

    Lights? I'm using the original LED light from fluval spec right now. I have a first Gen Finnex LED light with 2 strips of 7k lighting that creates hair algae like crazy. I don't think i want to use that anymore.

    What should I add? Floor plants? Moss? (I already have a straw of willow moss behind the rock)

    Fish or shrimp? thinking about fire red...

    What should I change?

    Where can I find a tiger nerite snail in orange County? Is there a way to tell from male and female snails? Don't want it laying eggs everywhere.

    Before

    This looks great! I'm a big fan of moss in low light tanks because it looks cool and is easy to keep. If it's a newer Spec I hear the lights are good enough for low light plants.

    I'm not sure about places in Orange, but Nerites are pretty easy to find. I've never had a problem with mine laying eggs; they prefer brackish water for breeding. If you have shrimp or fish they should probably take care of them, especially if you get amano shrimp. Mine eat everything.

    So I decided to have shrimp, pair of panda cory, 2 Amano shrimp, a couple of otos, and 1 nerite snail.

    What should I get for carpet plant. What was the carpet plant that starts creating air bubbles during the day? Was it hc?

    Any carpeting plant can pearl (the air bubbles) given the right lighting and conditions (usually more so with pressurized co2).
    Please don't quote my posts it is unnecessary , I will still read the thread without the extra "you have been quoted on SCAPE" notification email.
