  • Evil Christmas Moss of DOOOOOOOM!!!

    Just thought I'd post a pic, since I was just talking about it in another thread.

    This is my 6 gallon bowfront. An old one made by All Glass Aquariums (now Aqueon). It houses a male betta, a sparkling gourami, and two ADFs. But the main inhabitant is my Christmas Moss

    That wood is about 10 inches long and 8 inches tall.

    And, probably to the surprise of many of you guys, I don't do water changes on this tank. Just top it off. It's also got a couple crypts, two or three aponogentons, some kind of sword, and a whole butt load of duckweed. The fish eat about 5 times a week, and the plants stay happy, and I don't have to do anything! Lol

      No soil, though lol

      I bet the plants would be even happier if I weeded out some of that dang duckweed more often! I feed it to Bruce

      Theres also, obviously, a mess of guppy grass in there, too. I tried to add that to my first post, but the pictures show up in the editor and overload my phone.

          Yeah, lol I can go weeks with out seeing them. They prefer to come out at night, and with out my male singing anymore (the filter on another tank got him :/...), it's difficult to know if they are alive or not with out taking the tank apart LOL

          btw, the moss touches the front and back of the tank, too.

              Oh it's so enjoyable! Especially with two tanks and two ponds full of goldfish. Every water change I DON'T have to do is amazing.... :3

                great looking tank!

                Ill be honest most of my tanks only get top offs too due to plant load lol.

                  With as many as I have, it is the only way to go.

                    That Najas makes me miss mine... I only have a couple of sprigs left of them.

                    Great tank! I'm surprised your betta and Sparkling Gouramis get along with each other.

                      The gourami nips at Kai every now and then, but he pretty much hangs in that mass of plants, and Kai takes the open space lol

                          I think that moss is awesome. I wish it would grow like that in mine.

                            The moss came as a hitchhiker on a lily I bought at a lfs. Thought it was algea, but left it alone lol
