I have none of those plants except for some patches of Flame moss and C. Parva! Thanks for the suggestions, though. I'll dig around my collectoritis tank to see what I can come up with. I'll probably end up removing half the rocks and use them for a scape in my Fluval Edge tank.

Not sure how he does it but he appears to have some sort of magic touch.

Definitely doesn't seem to attach like moss though.
I've got some round pellia as well and to be honest, I never know what to do with it. Doesn't seem like it has uses like other mosses where you can tie it and it'll make a nice tree effect.
