i set up a dry start tank 3 weeks ago using fluval shrimp stratum, a few rocks and planted with dwarf hairgrass and phoenix moss (fissidens sp). I bound the fissidens to squares/triangles of craft mesh and fitted them around my rocks (the tank is an old school hexagon). It looks nice, the hairgrass is growing, the phoenix moss is healthy but not growing much but when I increase the water the craft moss floats. I presume I need to take out some water. The substrate is higher at the back than the front, so there is a bit of water collecting at the front. I can remove this though. I am concerned also about a musty smell when I remove the cling film lid.
Am I on the right track?
