    First Post - Intro
    I've been thinking about moving away from the artificial decor and going a more natural route for a while now. And after viewing some of the planted aquariums on AC and Pinterest, Iím convinced I must do it.

    And finally, after a month of cycling, his temporary home is ready (below). Iíve basically been waiting on that to happen so I can begin renovations... Everything must go! ;)

    So, today he went into this cozy 2-gallon:

    And the next couple of weeks will be full of fun with new substrate, plants, and who knows what else.


    Just for reference, this is what my 5-gallon currently looks like (give or take a few decorations):

    I love his current digs-and that background is great. I can't wait to see how you change this up-just keep the 5 gallon filter media wet-maybe in the 2.5 gallon, so that way you have the media ready when the 5 gallon is done.

    Well, I can tell you one thing that I know for sure I'll be putting in there: Moss balls. They look so simple and fun.

    They are certainly easy to keep, lol...just be sure to periodically squeeze them out, the center core can rot if you don't do this...then, they tend to break up and make a mess in the tank

    The pieces won't die, though, they'll cling to and grow on wherever they land in the tank

    Please do heed that advice. Slap's turned out to grow in neat places, but mine just mostly made a mess.

    I thought that LittleFox was talking about Marimo balls?
    100 gallon planted freshwater:
    7 x Boeseman's Rainbowfish, 11 x Cherry Barbs, 4 x False Julii Corydoras, 2 x Bristlenose pleco, and 1 common pleco who foils all my efforts to capture him

    I think so as well.

    Cladophora

    From a wiki link, found in a brief search:

    "There are three growth forms. One is epilithic (growing on rocks) and is usually found on the shaded side of the rocks. Another growth form lives as free-floating filaments, as small tufts of unattached filaments that frequently form a carpet on the muddy lake bottom. The third growth form is the lake ball proper, where the algae grow into sizable balls of densely packed algal filaments that radiate from the center."
