DIY Moss Tunnel

I saw this on my local forums and I hope it is not against the rules to post this here. If so, my bad and please feel free to delete it. Or if it has been posted here then again, my bad.

It is a moss tunnel made from a plastic mesh.

I've made several of these in the past with success. The only issue is keeping them on the bottom of the tank. I ended up pushing them partway into the sand to keep them down. If you don't have a sandy substrate, you can push gravel or whatever you have on the inside as long as you put a bottom on it.

Don't mean to steal thunder but I did something a bit similar "el natural" with Cholla Cactus skeletons and flame moss.

I bet if you double up the mesh and "sew" it shut with fishing line you could use a lot less moss and have it grow in...? I want to do this with all my overgrown java for my gourami!
