    you know i wonder if u can angle that driftwood to look like bleachers and then use like a slate rock or something as a wall hmmm might work from what i can tell in picture.
    the wood is pretty big and doesn't fit sideways. If I put it in center, it does resemble bleachers a bit! I love albino BN pleco (I have 1 in my discus tank).

    The kid is only 2 but think a school of cardinals will grab attention with their neon blue and either peppermint or bloodfin tetras would be the red school.
    It is the GH, not KH, that matters as this is the level of mineral hardness, and this is very significant to fish. The pH is important too. You can forget the "pH 7" myth, no fish lives in this water, they are either soft acidic water fish or hard basic water fish.

    Some tetra can manage in a moderately hard water with a basic (above 7) pH, but many cannot. Cardinals for instance do not do well in hard water, nor do neons. Bloodfin are fine in basic moderately hard water. I'm not exactly sure what "peppermint" tetra are, I see several different species under this common name online. If it is the variant of the Rosy Tetra, this is not a good hard water species.

    You asked me in a PM about the mosses I mentioned previously, so here is a link to a video showing them. This is one of my good local stores, Aquariums West, and these mosses were cultured by one of their employees, who happens to have studied under Takashi Amano. I have not tried these myself, but they are said to be good in low light (most mosses are, so no surprise).


    Byron.

    Thought as much, this is a colour variety of the Rosy Tetra, Hyphessobrycon rosaceus. The species is best in soft water, it can tend to pale a bit in hard water.

    Xmas moss covered plastic canvas with sponge netting.

    Byron - I am leaving the moss in the tank to fill in before I give them the tank. I set up filter using some media from my 150 so hopefully the cycle won't take too long. At this point, is there anything I can do to help grow the moss? I can DIY yeast CO2 and since I don't plan on stocking with fish for a bit?

    Mosses are slow growers. Though having said that, I am rather surprised by how much my Java Moss grows, but it is established and it is probably not as fast as I think just because I have to periodically remove some.

    I don't know how much of a boost having CO2 would be.
