Hi, I was wondering if anyone has done a foreground with just moss? Do you just place it in between mesh nets? How is the maintenance for it, because they do grow kind of fast. Thanks in advanced.

Depends on the moss.

If you pick one that's a fast grower, it's nice to have it grow in on something that you can lift out of the tank when it's time to give it a trim. Otherwise, if you cut it in the tank, have fun fishing all the pieces out afterwards LOL

I was thinking about using flame moss for a foreground. Its quite difficult to find bigger portions of flame moss. What moss do you suggest for a moss wall?

I had a foreground of java moss in my 29g that went from this:



To this:



in a matter of 2 months.
-Mgamer20o0 nice flame moss, did you buy a bulk of it? I find it quite hard to get a good portion of flame moss.

-emmanuelchavez nice foreground, did you just sandwich the moss in between some mesh?

what kind of mesh is good for this task? stainless steel, wired, or plastic?
Where can I find it? I also seen a picture of someone using a stainless steel mesh and a plastic net instead of another mesh to sandwich the moss, where can I find the net?

Thank you for all the replies!
