Wow, those moss walls are cool as hell! My wallet nearly flew out of my pocket for some x-mas moss when I saw those pics. I must've missed the original discussion because this is the first I have heard of moss walls. Just think of how much nutrients a moss wall would suck up! Your algae would be DOOMED! Well....maybe moss wouldn't suck up as much as riccia, since it's much slower growing.
I noticed that all the pictures of the moss walls were taken very close up, rather than showing the whole tank. I wonder if maybe they don't look so great when taken as a whole? Maybe the uniformity of the moss background creates some blandness? I don't know for sure, I am just guessing.
Has anyone here in the forum tried a moss background? They look really easy! I would love to do one of those on my 20 gallon, but before I kick down a bunch of money for the motherload of x-mas moss, I could use some words of wisdom from someone with experience on the subject.
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.
