    Hi guys,
    just bought my first aquarium today. :D

    ended up buying a white Ciano Emotions 80 (128L / 33.8 gallons) with the standard internal filter and heating.

    added the following plants: - 3 Cabomba Aquatica (still 1 to be added of those)
    - 3 Echinodorus Bleheri (still 1 to be added of those)
    - 2 Eleocharis Acicularis
    - 2 Vesicularia Dubyana (Java moss)

    Used Environment Aquarium Soil on the bottom as it was the smallest grain i could find (1-2mm)

    Hope the spider wood will stay on the bottom without the aid of the rocks on top in a few weeks...

    Should i leave the java moss floating around in the tank (for growth)? Or does this not matter.

    Now waiting until nitrogen cycle has been completed...

    Congrats on the new tank.

    I would tie the Java moss to something in your tank such as the wood so it has a chance to establish roots on the wood and adhere itself to it.

    Best at the bottom of the wood (near the soil)?

    If you choose to attach the Java moss, just be sure to keep it cut close in order to help it spread. Otherwise, it may get too thick and detach. It will grow if it is attached to something or not, as it is fertalized by the water column.
