I have not tried it but have always thought they look great. Here are a couple of links that discuss them.

Loh K L at has a very nice tank with a xmas moss wall. Looks like something that should definitely be tried. The erect moss in one of his tanks looks awesome as well. I got tiny portions of erect, xmas, and willow- hopefully one day they will grow enough to create a wall.

I was thinking of doing it also. My only thing is I can only get a hold of Java moss. Has anyone tried it with Java Moss? I know it grows differently than xmas moss.. but I think it should still look relatively good right?
