    Low light planted tank

    Hi all,

    As some of you know I shut down my discus breeding set up and I kinda catch up most things. Finnally I set up my planted tank but i have to thank 2 people's ROAK, Tim's plants (Vanthuyet1990) and Mike's Mazanita (Bongox3)

    Tank is 36x15x20"H with external overflow , 10g sump
    36" Finnex LED
    4 bags Eco complete substract
    Guppies
    Corys

    Question- is it ok put 2 more types of moss in same tank?

    Tony is doing a planted tank? Oooooh this should be interesting =)

    2 types of moss should be okay. They might mix, but people have multiple mosses all the time.

    Tank looks good. And multiple mosses in a tank will be fine if your tidy. I have like 4 or 5 types in my cherry shrimp tank. My suggestion: keep them slightly apart so they dont grow into eachother, and trim one at a time and clean up the trimmings after each type of moss so your trimmings dont mix either.

    You may want to check out moss ledges. Then you can collect multiple types of moss and it makes maintenance easy because you can pull the ledge out to trim.
