I bought some floaters from Bekah. They came in 3? days via priority.. I've had them for a month-ish and they filled half of my 75's surface area.

They grow crazy fast. I'd be happy to rid myself of some duckweed and a few nodes of the asian water grass!

If the leaves dry out, you may need to use an extremely mild fertilizer and water mixture in a spray bottle, and mist daily.

Not sure if you'll ever be able to flood it and add critters since the soil mixture is mostly peat. Peat is extremely messy. Still an okay medium to grow out plants to add to another tank, or as an experiment.

Looks good. Emersed setups are great for growing mosses and foreground plants like hairgrass. Good luck with the setup.
