So I just got my Marimo mossballs, and was sad to see them float within minutes of being in direct light.
That immediately gave me an idea :idea2:.
I split the Marimo in half, and tied the flat base down to a rock.
Result (the picture cannot do it justice):
My shrimp *love* hanging upside down and sleeping under it.
This opens up so many exciting possibilities!
My suggestions to make this better:
* Use an invisible, non-degradable fishing line and create a line of different layers (kind of like the old school Mario mushroom top platforms).
* Use a stiff line/wire to have the Marimo maintain it's position when the lights go off (or else they'll sink and unexpectedly frighten the shrimp)
* Use a stick of driftwood, split a bit of the end, and use it as a 'fork' to pinch the Marimo base. Then it'll look like a real mini 'tree'.
