Star Moss

Has anyone ever used star moss before?
I adore the way it looks and from what I can find its pretty easy to keep, which is nice since I'm working on my first planted tank.

What Id like to do is use it as floor cover, maybe attach it to some canvas I have, if thats possible.


So if anyone has used it before, can you please tell me your experience with it?

i googled it and found a website. Just about all of them said it just died off. Was ok out of water or in a little water but fully submerged it just died off in 2weeks to 2 months. Ill get the link for you... Here it is:

Aww... That makes me sad... ;__; It would've looked lovely in an aquarium.... I say the person who made the misleading pic needs to get a slap in the face! >.< That's just cruel and unusual punishment for anyone else that thinks the same.... *sniffle*
