Well, since I was setting up a cory and betta tank, and was going to put sand to not stress the fish, live plants as decoration and to help with the water... May as well plant it with lots of plants! I was thinking of getting Java moss and making a 'mound' of it, like a small slope in one corner, almost like it's covering a rock. Then I could take some corkboard and plant some 'Hemianthus callitrichoides' - http://plantgeek.net/plant-275.htm to cover most of the bottom. I could then put chunks of driftwood as decoration/support for the plants. I also have a large 'hump' of wood that is about 4"x2.5"x2.5" and rounded, with a hole drilled through the middle and a few other holes drilled in. It has a bottom 'lip' which I can wedge down and hide, effectively making it look like a rock with a plant growing out of it Anyways, I was going to get Java Moss, the Hemianthus, Java Fern, and sand for the bottom - maybe mixing in a small amount of gravel for decoration. I was also going to get a higher than normal watted hood, or if I can't, rig up an extra light source. 1. Are these plants normally available? 2. What kind of sand should I get? 3. Would this not work for some reason? Any advice/suggestions/tips would be greatly appreciated!
