Moss Cave?

Vardaman likes his dark hiding spots. I found this and think it would be perfect! I'd like to cover it in moss. What moss do you suggest? Java moss?

I'll just be getting the small square one. Var is in a 3 gallon tank.

That's a cute idea!! Just make sure that the hole is large enough for him to fit through! I know some cichlids can be small.
I bought most of mine locally. Some people here can share USA sites. But I bought marimo moss off ebay from "AquaticMagic".

Thank you! Hmmm...even if the hole is a little on the small side I'm sure Vardaman would just love it even more. He likes to squeeze himself into impossible situations.

I tried in vain years ago to get my sister's betta out of a hole cut into a flower pot. :( Just be careful, you want the hole to be big enough for your thumb to go through

I'd check your local classifieds and craigslist for some java moss. I got some thrown in for free with other plants I bought from someone on craigslist, but it's usually dirt cheap cause it grows like a weed in the right conditions!

Plantedaquariumscentral is a great on-line site for buying plants. But warning if you have only one small tank, they often send extra plants at no charge!

I'm thinking of rolling some plastic mesh into a cylinder, and planting moss through it. The moss should grow through the mesh and completely hide it after a while. I might suction cup it to the tank side to keep it off the ground, to make it less likely that my shrimp will hide in it and become a snack.
