Kinection Thread is really good too because it decays
off within a few months, just for those other
people wondering.

Shiggy - what kind of moss is that? It looks awesome! Are the dealers on e-bay trustworthy enough to actually send you what they're selling? I've done plenty of business on there, but I hear mixed rumors specifically about the Hong Kong sellers being flaky.

Elliriyanna super glue gel? i have never heard of it

Monster Fish Use super glue gel. It takes a few minutes to cure but that's enough time to attach moss/anubias/java ferns/etc.

Elliriyanna i didnt know that ... cool i will have to get some once my driftwood is done leaching

bluegoldfish No, it cures instantly on contact with water. It also turns white when it gets wet, but the plants will soon cover it up.

Elliriyanna wouldn't it have to be out of the water for a while to cure?

MiniFishRoom In time it will root to whatever it is you attached it to.

Elliriyanna am i correct in remembering java moss does not actually take root?

MiniFishRoom You can use fishing line as stated above or regular sewing thread.
Make sure not to leave gaps because your fish can get caught up or tangled in it and die. I learned that one the hard way.

leo1234 You can just tie it with fishing line. I think some people use super glue.
