Do you have a picture of the christmas moss? sometimes when its shipped, it clumps up, but once you put it under water, it'll start spreading out with some light.

It's going to be pretty tough growing micro sword without soil in the tank. You'll just get a few patches here and there. It won't spread to form a carpet.

I just wanted little patches i didn't want it to take over. That is why they said on a mat works the best for that

Do you have substrate of any sort? Gravel or sand? Don't plant as a clump but as individual plants and it will fill in. Alternatively, if you don't have substrate, you can plant it in a tiny decorative ceramic or clay pots with sand or in weighted-down craft mesh. With the craft mesh, rinse them thoroughly in dechlorinated water, poke individual plants in the holes and weigh the craft mesh down with rocks covered in moss. You will need to fertilize with a liquid fertilizer or, if you have substrate, with root tabs.

It would take forever for them to take over the tank but the craft mesh would contain them.

I have gravel, im just gonna look for them in a basket or in the mesh/mat form sp they stay in one spot. I was reading on here someone else keeps them in a basket so she can move them when cleaning.
