    The tank looks great! I love the look of a properly set up planted tank. Yours always have such a natural look to them. I love it!

    How do you attach moss to a piece of wood or rock work and what type would be suitable for a low light tank?

    I used cotton thread, it breaks down in about 2 weeks or so. Any moss will do. This tank is low light.

    Thanks. What kind of shrimp is that? Will it eat plants?

    No the shrimp will not eat plants. It is a Neocaridina.

    So a photo on this little tank since I haven't put one up for months. The moss actually has a greater mass but was wrapped around the wood since it came loose when I moved the Gouramis to the Fluval.

    I need to restock the shrimp in the tank since there is only a couple left.

    Beautiful tank. I was thinking of setting up a tank similar to this, mostly for shrimp and maybe a few chilli rasboras. I've never had any luck with shrimp. any advice?

    Thanks, water quality needs to be high for the shrimp. There are some freshwater planted tank forums that will be of a great help.

    You need to be cautios using CO2 with shrimp.
