The moss has been tied with thread to my two pieces of cable tied bog wood.

No stone work going in but my wife is looking for a colourful child's ornament for in the tank. I suppose compromise is the way to a happy marriage.

Ps she picked the light blue substrate.

Your aquarium is starting to look great. I'm glad you have close to the same parameters as I do, it'll help me decided what fish to get ( I'm too picky).

Definitely subscribed and can't wait to see how well it turns out!

What are the parameters that you have your tetras housed in now? Usually the Tetra family prefer lower PHs and softer water.

Exactly the same. Tetras do prefer a lower pH to breed but they are quite happy in higher pH as long as you acclimate them correctly. There is only 2-4 pH difference from when I get them from my LFS.
