Jeff, is it possible to get a picture with the mosses labeled on it?

This is one of the most captivating tanks I've seen!


*edit* Also, what substrate were you using?

I promise to take some new photos, just have been so busy lately. I'm using a mix of fluorite and play sand. Everything is filling in great, and the air-plants are all budding.

Holy COW!! That is AWESOME!

Okay, I know you probably posted this more than once, and I'm about to be the laughing stock of the mods, but are those all different Erio's in the foreground? What is the plant in the foreground dead-center? It's amazing.

:D
Thanks very much.
The erio's on the left are Eriocaulon aquaticum (I believe) ;)
Dead center is Eriocaulon sp. 'Goias'
Spread all over are small Eriocaulon sp. 'Sulawesi'
And finally on the right side are a pair of Eriocaulon cinereum,

I like the branches you have chosen. They seem to be the right size and very much in place. Mosses look healthy and thriving.

Congartulations!

Your tank just keeps getting better and better.
Thanks everyone! :clap2:

I'd like the needle leaf ferns to fill out more, then I think this tank is complete.

Nice man. I love those eriocaulons. U know how I have my eye on them.
I know you do.. :D Hopefully they'll start splitting soon, definitely large enough for it.

wow what is your electric bill with the reff and planted tank. lol really cool
Ya Id rather not talk about it, ignorance is bliss right? Actually even with the AC on this summer hasn't been too bad.. in the couple hundred dollar range ;)

Thanks! It took several hours to figure out how to fit them. Luckily the folks that sent the driftwood sent me a large selection, excellent product.

Just saw this tank when you posted a For Sale thread. Boy - your tank is BEAUTIFUL! I just love the entire thing. About 3 weeks ago I got mosses to do something similar in my 10g. This is absolutely gorgeous!!

Dont know how I missed this thread.
The contrast pic is cool.

Nothing like having one display you work to limit algae growth and another you strive to encourage its growth!

Thanks very much. I had to slice the Large Erio as it was taking over the foreground and tank. The Subwassertang continues to grow and grow. The more it matures the more I love it.

Thanks again.
