I can't wait to see how that wall grows in. I've been toying trying it in one of my tanks. Please post any pointers about getting it set up, and of coures the grow-out.

Just planning out my own 2.5g, and I love your wall idea! Where did you find that mesh?

Where else would you buy mesh for a wall but at WalMart?

I'm also thinking about making a moss wall as well, but i'm not sure what tank I want to do it for.

I like it! I like it a lot! I think you need to kick down for some more moss for that grid though, hehheh. The setups I have seen online have enough moss initially to wind thinly across the grid before they put it in the tank.
I have actually been toying with the idea of a moss wall as well, but I would have to take down one of my tanks and set it back up again. That, plus the expense of buying enough moss to fill a grid makes me drag my feet.

Two 1 GA desktops, a 5 gallon, a 2.5 gallon, a 10 gallon, a 20 gallon, a 25 gallon, and two 75 gallon tanks, all planted.
I am an expert on algae, so ask me if you have questions. I know how to grow it, just not how to get rid of it.
