Can you actually float moss?

Maybe that's why my freaking moss keeps floating. :l

Yes, it is readily floated in lots of aquariums for breeding reasons such as preserving and saving fry

Thanks! I'll see if I can find some of these.
I though about hornwort but I heard its a pain in the butt when its placed in a tank with all the needles shedding.

what about anubis? does that have to be anchored or will it anchor itself to decor?

petsmart has a huge selection of plants in a huge tank but I have no idea what they are and there are only a few plants i can identify by looking at it like amazon sword, anacharis, a moss ball LOL

Anubias, you'll have to anchor it to something, it won't anchor itself.

since this thread seems to be active may I ask a question? I don't want to start a new thread just for this.

When quarantining new plants, should the water be conditioned or is straight tap water OK? Also I have the plants in a covered pot. Will the plants be OK without light and for how long?

also, should I do water changes in the pot? How often?

Thanks. The plant thread has been closed and it's so long I am too tired to read it

Quarantine is okay for around 1 ~ 2 weeks, the longer the better.

I would say conditioned water but if I'm wrong someone feel free to correct me. Also what do you mean covered pot? And yes if they are plants that need light to survive they will need light or they will die while in quarantine, also, if you don't have the right temperature for them they will die.

Also, still not getting this whole pot thing.

In a cooking pot with a cover so the cats can't get to them

Oh okay I understand now.

But yeah, if you have low-light light plants in there they'll still need some light. And also, you won't need to change the water I believe.

Anubis will float if left free in the water. I try to bury the roots (not the rhizome) but it doesn't like to stay down.

If you have some java moss you can tie some to a wine cork.

If you have a wine store nearby many times they will conduct wine tastings and can pick up a few corks. You can also ask people in grocery stores etc on sample day.

They sell some floating plastic plants marketed for reptiles as "cricket savers."
I got a couple packages of these and my Bettas love to sit under them. I've had them in the tanks for a year now.
