great idea with the moss wall...but i went to the LFS yesterday, an they did not have java fern or java moss, plus the anubias was ridiculously priced...they are basically raping my pockets,lol...no, i mean a TREE...not driftwood...a small underwater tree, like a bonsai tree but it must be able to live in water...i saw it in a tank and its absolutely stunning...i haven't seen your tank...how about sending some pics? jgovender1@gmail.com

awsome tank you have there.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

AquariumPlants.com Largest online sales / service site for the live aquarium plants & aquarium products community. They have good prices there as far as plants!

Bonsai Tree Aquarium Ornaments for Fish, Pond & Reptile - GregRobert here's some silk bonsai they sell as aquarium decorations, I'll try looking for the name of an actual plant or if you can use bonsai, i think some people just use fake bonsai and attach flame moss to it

P.S. Here's a video of my tank!

hi sinopa,

i do appreciate the time you took in supplying me with those links, it is well appreciated, but unfortunately i'm from South Africa and shipping these plants to me would cost me more than the prices here in SA...but i'm so glad that there are people like you who are always willing to help, thanks so much...
