    Cool little tank, only issues I can forsee would be having to trim constantly because of the lack of space. cool none the less

    nice little aquascape, low maintenance and light plants (except maybe for that rotala on the right). Love the detail on the rock too, where did you get it? CK?

    Hi! Thanks for the feedback! This tank sits right in front of a shaded window and I actually haven't seen too much growth with the mosses yet. Pretty happy with the limnophila aromatica/rotala growth rate because I'd like to cultivate some of it for another tank. It really adds a nice delicate texture and hint of color.

    I actually picked up this chunk of rock from Tokyo Aquarium on West Adams because I happened to be in the neighborhood one day and wanted to check it out. It broke up nicely into a few pieces. Little on the pricey side though.

    limnophila aromatica http://bit.ly/2kVVNxr, more like a rotala species.. http://bit.ly/2kGcm22

    try experimenting with high light over the rotala (maybe with a gooseneck spotlight or hang on back LED.) and it might turn pink/red, if so that could be a rotala butterfly red... http://bit.ly/2lE6CEu (my favorite plant)

    Tokyo Aquarium, that's one store I've never visited. I'll have to check them out, thanks!

    Woah! Rotala butterfly red is gorgeous! Thanks for the ID, I was thinking it was more of a rotala species (smaller, thinner leaves with a round tip) but it was labeled "rice" on the bag I got it in, hence limnophila aromatica. I will try the high light on it and cross my fingers!

    rice..?! lol

    cool just make sure to have that light on a timer for maybe 6 hours or less (not sure exactly with that tank size) but if algae gets out of control then yeah reduce the light/timer and throw in some red cherry shrimps... http://bit.ly/2kGpbJy
