Here is a good scape on 1ft.

Rocks and aquatic plant in unison. Your driftwood looks a bit too big at the moment.

Hello all, I'm a complete newbie to this.

I just got a moss ball and don't know where or how to start.

So, anyway, I just into my late dad's pond with a pair of surviving angelfish. Hope this moss will grow well.

Up to you. De-ttachable if you loosen the clip on top. The plastic clip although looks very hardy, 2-3 years, it will break because of constant exposure to the aquarium water.

If dettach, you can cable tie it to some stand of your own liking. It is pretty DIY-able if you ask me. This is call the Pasat Malam lighting. Often you see RamLee burger stalls, they use them.

maybe go hardware store see got what 1st

I washed it earlier before I put into the tank. It was floating, so I squeeze it, so that it would sink to the bottom, it did.

What should I be doing next? How often do I have to clean the moss ball or something like that?

is ok if the wood is centerpiece

There are techniques such as 1/3 left as center piece, what constitute main view what constitute auxiliary view, etc.

In short, there should be a main attraction in the tank. People scratch out on paper. I do that previously as well, before physically putting the stuffs in front of the tank on newspaper, twisting and turning each drift, each rock to get the best mix before I even pouring the soil into an empty tank. It is the same practise as per the Jap vid I posted a few days ago.

Critising the tank isn't really the most frustrating part of setting up a tank.

First, you need a picture. A picture of what you want to create. It isn't really creation at will. You really need to picture yourself. E.g. driftwood, sit up? lie down? A bit left? A bit right? Touch glass or not? Want to tie what?

Moss Types:
Monosolenium tenerum
Taxiphyllum barbieri

A word on tying plants to driftwood is call secure. Unsecure tie means the plants might float up, so your effort wasted. : > Run out of ideas? Go to google image.

The tank does not seem very qualifying as planted tank due to the black patch there, I can tell you that.

: > How about getting another tank?

Dun think will change to another tank ba.. sibei sayang. The black patch there is actually there internal filtration system.. anyway im a newbie so bound to make mistakes here and there. pardon me pls :)

It is not sayang if you transform this into a nursing tank. Nursing tank can be an aquatic plant solely tank. Purpose is to grow plants. E.g. you can cultivate your own hornwort supply or moss supply or even duckweeds, etc.

I list a few here, you take a look.

Larger sized tetras are fine. Small ones will become fish food, esp when your Angelfish gets to adult size.

Bottom feeders like corys are fine too. The angels won't disturb. In any case, they are too wide for the angels to swallow.

I'm keeping a shoal of congo tetras with my altum angels. I think large sized rummynose tetras and cardinal tetras would be fine too.

Smaller fish like endlers, and dwarf rasboras will be makan-ed.

Platies leh?
