You can tie moss on a sheet of stainless steel mesh and place the mesh so the moss is between the mesh and the wall.

That way the moss will grow through the mesh.

There's a good walkthrough on this site on how to make a moss wall, they have some other helpful info on different kinds of moss too. http://www.aquamoss.net/How%20to%20c...oss%20wall.htm

If you're careful it won't scratch.

SS also holds the shape better.

Thanks everyone for the tips! Going to get started on this today. Planning on using Peacock Moss.
I am guessing I should only make the wall up to the top of the intake for the filter so I don't block it?

Hey there! I'm trying this soon too I've got plastic cross stitch mesh that is very thick, not flimsy. I picked a bunch of it up at walmart for cheaps. I'm going to be custom cutting it (theyre big sheets). I personally am going to go to the top, just not over the filter intake.
