Java Moss

So I'm new to mosses and not really sure what to do with them...

There was a swap meet by me and I picked up a baseball sized java moss ball for $3! Anyway, now I don't know what to do with it... I have a 15G shrimp tank and a shrimp bowl. The 15G has a few rocks and the bowl has a piece of driftwood that I will be attaching anubias nana petite to. Can I attach this stuff to rocks?

I need ideas... can I make a java moss mat out of this stuff? I've heard of people making a java moss wall... that crossed my mind for the 15G... making one of the sides a java moss wall. How would I go about doing that?

If your attaching to wood which I think always look good you can use fishing line or sewing thread. Either way it can be attached to anything that doesn't have a completely smooth surface.

I just started a moss wall. I went to a craft store and got my supplies for cheap. I think you will enjoy making one. It is easy.

Just stick the green glob under some wood or stemmed leaved plants and they'll grow just fine... perfect for shrimpies to get it on.

Just bought my supplies last night from Menards. Didn't cost more than $10 tops. Will probably start working on my wall this weekend
