wanted: aquascaping idea for problem area
I've got a corner tank and all the equipment goes in the very back corner. Something that has spoiled my enjoyment of this tank is the "clear" tubing (which turns white) that goes in and out of my sand filter.
I recently decided to try a moss curtain. I took a reptile hammock and sewed java moss to it, then used the suction cups to make a little screen/curtain around the offending tubes. It's a big improvement--at least in my eyes. But I'm having a problem. Due to water movement or possibly too much moss, I'm finding little bits of java moss coming off and landing all over the tank making a mess.
I'm looking for an alternate plant that will completely cover the mesh and not be so messy. I'm also open to other suggestions. Since this is where all the filtration equipment goes in and out, there is a fair amount of current in this location. It's back behind the hoods, so it gets low light.
