This is my 2nd gallon ziplock bag of Taxiphyllum Spiky trimmed out of my tank in 4 months, and the way little bits of it get stuck everywhere drives me crazy!! Even when I'm not trimming it, fine bits of it get disturbed by the fish and shrimps and litter up my foreground carpet plants

Is there a slower growing moss that's not as messy? I was thinking of trying Flame moss in my next tank, it sounds much easier to trim and keep under control far less frequently

I'm not exactly sure if Fissidens would survive in my setup, but if I do want to use it how would I go about attaching it to driftwood?

I want to stick with Taxiphyllum moss, since I've had great success with Spiky and Java moss in the conditions I've kept them in. Xmas moss didn't really look as good in my tanks
