Java fern/moss would be a nice addition and easy to grow

Java fern is a tie-down. You can attach it to coral, coarse rock or driftwood. It will put roots into the rough surface of what you tie it to, and hold on

Dont bury it..it will stifle(my rookie mistake lol) but they are sturdy, and recover quickly from human error

It should be ok..as long as you gave the roots room to breathe. You can even take the gravel off, and just hold down the main root "trunk" with a rock, so that they look planted , and have room to spread out


This is mine, in recovery, after being planted. The man trunk died but it grew new leaves and roots once given breathing room.
