Nights are getting colder, it's that season again. I am feeling christ-messy. Giving, sharing, caring, shopping... all the good stuff. Since it is still too early to decorate christmas trees, I started with my tanks.
First, pulled out a few strands of Christmas Moss
(of course!), disconnected the heater and arranged it all nicely:
Used some brand name tooth floss (non-mint, non-cinnamon, non-waxed, for goodness sake) and wrapped the whole thing lightly.
A few helpful hints:
Unplug the heater before taking out of the water and applying moss.
Do not wrap the area with the heating elements, Christmas trees are known to catch fire.
Do not tie the knot to the adjustment knob. Tie it to the cable.
Since I was at it, I continued with my trusty Aquaclear Mini. Never liked it sticking into my mountainscape, now I'll convert it into a tree:
If attempting this, do not wrap the moss around the input strainer. I know it will cause problems in the long run!
Okay, all done. Why use fat white floss instead of black invisible cotton thread? Because in a few weeks it will be invisible anyway, and I will know the moss is growing well. All the heat and flow, can't ask for more
