How are you going to carpet the moss? It will take a while to cover up plus it will collect debris unless you aggressively clean it. Also, you can easily remove the dwarf sag runners.
i already have 3 patch that are 3" tall with SS mesh that has been growing for 2 month.How are you going to carpet the moss? It will take a while to cover up plus it will collect debris unless you aggressively clean it. Also, you can easily remove the dwarf sag runners.
i was thinking more like...give it a few month and see then take out the rest of the plants...If you don't want the dwarf sag, take it out then. It will grow out faster than the moss. If you want a flame moss carpet, get some more moss and SS mesh. Higher light and CO2 will produce faster moss growth. However it will be easier for algae to grow if you don't have the correct balance of light, CO2, and ferts.
Thanks...debris should be a problem with my snail cleaning up after it.Let me tell you a story about flame moss...
i love the stuff, but it grows so densely it becomes a magnet for detritus. this super dense growth helps things like planaria thrive. this can be good and bad. bad for shrimp. tasty snacks for cory cats.. etc...
I have to regularly shake out tufts of moss to clear it from loose debris.
A true carpet would be absolutely lovely, but impractical
