Java moss ideas?

I currently have java moss in my 5 gallon and its being used as a carpet.
However, I was wondering, how do YOU have your java moss? :)

I'd like to see some cool and inteeresting ideas that I can use for my tank :)

I think it would neat to place some on a cave of some sort and let it spread till you have a moss cave.

Jaysee I saw moss tornado video that is so awesome !

Yes, that's all Java Moss.

Obviously not mine, but I found this on Facebook and thought it was worth adding.

Very cool Africa scene!

I cut out the silhouette of a unicorn in craft mesh and tied java moss to it... hoping it will look more like a topiary eventually...

How does java moss grow? Can you get it to spread? The tree scene is cool. I wanted to do a tree top with some of mine and some bushes.

I got a clump of it, divided it into two clumps, rolled them up and dropped them in on both sides of the tank. One spread out and is tangled all over the place, kind of attaching to driftwood, kind of not. The other mass of it stays still near the bottom. I don't know what to do with them yet either.. How fast do they grow?

Ahhh quick question! Does java moss help reduce ammonia/nitrites?

My tank has managed to stay cycled even without a filter so I was wondering.
