Stainless steel mesh

Looking for a supplier as I need a more methodical means to grow and keep my mosses in check, not to mention having the versatility to rescape my foreground on the fly

LMK...

im going to check out ace hardware later this week but open to suggestions, also which diameter t316 you are using.

Wire mesh?

They say don't put any type of metal in shrimp tanks does this include stainless steel mesh or would I have to use plastic?

If you're willing to try inverted plastic net flower pots, I'll bring you a couple to try. I put my peacock moss on them. You can get more varieties at the Hydroponics store too.

Check the Grainger and McMaster-Carr catalogs before you order. I think I have seen it in both those places.

use the website and call ahead and they will transfer it in for you and have it waiting. Or just have it shipped to your house.

I'm sure those are not 316, maybe 304 coated.
