Fiberglass Mesh Moss Wall

I would like to make a moss wall.. Well its actually for the bottem to hopefully breed some fish...
My question is though,
I bought some fiberglass window mesh, is the fiberglass safe to use in an aquarium?

Thanks in advance, you guys (& Girls) are so very helpful!

i would wait for someone else to back me up on this, but I would venture to say that Yes it is tank safe.

Many people use it for construction purposes in Paludariums to seperate layers of substrate. and no ill side effects have occured for this fish below or the amphibians above (that my swim in the water).

I know for sure that it will not rust.

and thinking about it now, I used it in a 20g as a seperator wall for several months back in college with no problems.
