Thanks! Personally, I think the Fissidens was way too overgrown. I got lazy and haven't been trimming it for a long time, and some BBA started to build up on it, so blech.

This is a practice run for my Mini-S I'm waiting for a light I purchased to come, and then I can start growing an HC carpet (dry start method) in it. After it has established itself, I will switch over from the 2.5g to the Mini-S....

Perhaps I'll fix up the hardscape in the Mini-S and take a snapshot of that sometime this week

Glad to be of some inspiration! Most of the plants for a nano aquarium are your standard fare (Blyxa, HC, Dwarf Hairgrass, etc). I've been looking for some UG, but it is difficult to find it.

It is a glass diffuser with a ceramic disc.
