Is that fiberglass mesh for the moss carpet? How are you keeping it from floating?

My sun sun is a great canister in my opinion. Especially for the price, you can't beat it. It runs good and is completely silent. There may be better options but not without paying a premium and I haven't found a single problem with the sunsun yet. I would definitely get another.
