About the rope, is nylon the way to go? Is that what last the longest under water before it "crumble" to pieces?
Nylon hasn't broken down for me, or at least to any noticeable extent. http://www.strictlyfish.net/tropical...uarium-carbon/ takes SUPER long for nylon to degrade in a freshwater aquarium.

Why not just use stainless steel mesh to carpet moss on the ground? You'd have to secure the rope in multiple areas whereas the stainless steel mesh weighs itself down.

I found some 1/2" bird netting, I think that's what it is, at Home Depot. It is a freakin' ginormous roll of it (like 4' x 10' or something ridiculous), but it was only $8 here. I'm just gonna use that, just cut it to fit.

Moss Vine

So, here's what I did with this whole idea. I have a large wood stump that I'm going to add to my 75g. I'm going to add some moss, or somethng else, to certain areas of it but one thing I wanted was to add something that looks like a vine, wrapped around the trunk of the wood.
I found thin nylon rope, used 3 lengths of it to create a triple braid, and braided moss into it. After a few weeks, here's what it looks like.

Of course, the closer it is to the light, the faster it is growing. So, the bottom half is'nt as filled in as the top half. I may have to string it out accross the top, about an inch or so below the surface.
All in all, I think it's comming along good. I'll trim it back alittle, let it grow in fuller, and in no time I'll be adding my stump, with the rope wraped around it.
