Moss only tanks

I'm planning out a moss only Mini S right now. I can't seem to find any posts about others doing this, even on the internet. Are you aware of any moss only tanks or journals that I can look at for inspiration? I'm thinking I will be using lots Christmas moss on driftwood and as a carpet.

Here is a link to someone's journal. I think their scape is pretty awesome. I even kinda copied it, a little bit.

I'd say about 30% of the moss grew.

His scapes were some of the best IMO, but I haven't seen a sign of Ugly Genius in almost a year.

Currently out of the hobby

I love moss tanks. The method for that fissiden tank was cool too. I just gave up on an experimental/mess around moss tree tank since the lighting on it was way to high and caused algae problems. If you get the right lighting though these tanks are awesome.

Here's the start of mine based off the link I posted above using xmas moss. It's just sitting on the floor right now on some milk crates, I'll let it sit for a week till the stand is built for the tank and I get some more lavarock that I don't want covered in moss to put under some of these pieces. I'm basically just going to go big rock piles with some of these pieces on top and It's going to be a shrimp tank. I used tahitian moon sand for it.


20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.
