    Looks great man. The substrate at the back looks quite high, just wondering if that might cause any concern. What you planning to stock in it?

    Yes.. i should have stuff some plastic to prevent soil erosion, but was too lazy, it’s planting mainly Rotala, I took this idea from YouTube.

    Concern? Now i juz worry the plants not going fast enough to complete with the algae.

    Fishes, I haven’t really decide. Currently going to move over some existing green neon tetra and red darter tetras.

    how’s yours doing?

    Laiddat loh, tank looks like shit hahaha and pandas are sick. Fortunately the CPDs are doing well. Gonna rescape after a few weeks and get rid of all my root feeders... Gonna replace substate with thin layer of sand and just go for water column feeders tied on rock and wood.

    Can check something with you? Did you tie or glue the moss to your wood? It looks very neat.

    Re: Best of both worlds

    Cotton threads nowadays do not disintegrate like before. I have mine for over a year now on my ferns and it's still there. I also uses both canary and river drift woods, these woods are harder than the normal driftwood and the ferns do not root into them. If you like to keep the texture of the wood intact, I suggest using cotton threads, glue tends to leave ugly white residues / patches.
