I am interested in making a moss wall for my 26 gallon tank. I will be stocking the tank with CRS, small mid-level schooling fish (possibly tetras or endlers), and/or pygmy corydoras.
I was wondering which material would be best to achieve the wall. I have found people to use stainless steel mesh, mosquito netting, or plastic mesh canvas sheets. I'm trying to decide between stainless steel, or plastic mesh canvas.
Would the steel leech chemicals into the water at all?
Are larger holes preferable over smaller holes? (Considering what I'm planning on stocking the tank with)
Are there any other ways to secure the wall to the tank apart from suction caps?
Which type of moss would be ideal for this project? (I have been thinking of using java moss, I don't mind using shorter moss)
I realise these questions may have been asked before, and would appreciate any links or additional information.
