I haven't done anything cool with my java moss yet--its mostly spread around the tanks in clumps lol, but theres tons of possibilities. LOVE the unicorn "topiary" idea. Plastic craft mesh can be used in a lot of ways to create things with java moss--carpets, walls, etc. as can driftwood and rocks when attached strategically.
I hesitate to put java moss in clumps or as carpet in the tank.
I noticed a stray one that started off as 1/2" began to tangle itself around my stem plants and I thought it was hair algae because it is now 2" untwined last night. (about 2 weeks)
I bind them to a pebble using a polyester craft mesh on top of it and sewn in the openings. My question is :
If I want to moss to be a carpeting plant, how do I do it? Also, how do I clean and vacuum since the moss is covering the substrate?
I think I figure out how to do the trees with Java moss. I have a bonsai looking tree from Petsmart. Which BTW I think is ripping my veiltails fins. I was thinking about how make usable. I am going to do small clumps of java moss of the problem green areas with fishing line to anchor it. The branches of three in the forest picture look alot like this tree. I wonder if the put the trees at different levels. If so it would have cost a fortune. Does anyone know where to get it cheaper than $7.99 that is what I pay everytime I get some.
