Heres some tank shots and my boys enjoying the new layout!

I have added the bogwood on the left to create a terrace in the hope of creating some different layers to the tank. I also picked up some moss balls which I hope wil cause some algae to grow and cover this wood.

Looks great, but the idea of adding the ball moss to encourage algae growth probably isn't going to work. In all likelyhood, the ball moss will continue to grow in it's ball form, and compete with the algae for nutrients. I would suggest getting some java moss and tying it to the wood with some green thread, it will root to the wood soon after. That will have a nice effect to it and the java moss won't have much trouble growing in the low light that Ps also prefer.

Java Fern and Anubias can also be attached to drift wood or rocks, with a piece of nylon thread or fishing line - they grow higher and compared to moss they look more like 'real' plants, so if that's what you looking for, you might consider those plants too...


Great set-up and awesome Redbellies, mate

Their colors are beautiful!
