Flame moss is very easy to grow but wouldn't make a good choice for a wall. The beauty of flame moss is the verticle growth so use that to your advantage.


Christmas or Taiwan moss make the best walls

Flame moss:
Singapore moss on the ground:
Go with something that doesn't grow vertically for a moss wall, but flame moss might make a cool moss wall

I like seeing pics of others tanks as well; helps to give ideas

Flame on the left, fissidens on the right


fissidens trees - the scape didn't work out well for me - got this idea from someone else here.


Singapore wall


Weeping moss






closeup flame


erect - I tend to get pearling on my mosses which I find annoying

I like this from yours


My biggest problem is trying to have mosses and ground covers in the same tank. How about you?

Thanks. I hate having more than one type of moss in a tank. They mix together when you trim them and it just makes a mess, at least it seems that way because I'm kinda ocd lol.

Am I seeing 3 HOB in your tank? How big is that tank? Are you not getting so much water movement for your shrimps?
You guys have awesome moss tanks. I want one myself.
