DSM moss on wood
So i have an empty 10g laying around and figured, hey why not set it up? I have an eheim on another tank, and that filter will be ready in about a month to stick on this 10g. In the meantime, I figured I could DSM a bunch of java moss onto a large chunk of driftwood in the 10g. (mince up moss, paint it on, mist it daily or so) The problem is, the piece of driftwood I want to use will float whenever I decide to flood the tank.
Is there any way around this? In the past, I have used slate drilled to the bottom of the wood to hold it down, but I have no extra slate left (and dont know how to drill it myself..)
So does anyone know another way to hold down a large piece of driftwood? Or how have others dealt with floating driftwood after DSM in the past?
If I cant figure it out, I guess Ill just tie on the moss and try to sink it for the month...but I would really like to mince up the moss to get it to grow quicker.
