I love moss and have it going on 5 rocks now. But I can't keep it clean. Seems to be the only place I have algae and the chinese algae eaters sure aren't doing their job. The only thing I can find to keep it clean is the platies but I don't want platies in every tank I have the moss in.

And idea's?

One night with the platies and they are just as clean as can be. Why don't algae eaters work like platies do?

maybe food and detritus is settling on the moss more because it is pretty dense. that would add to your algae problem on the moss. just a thought.

maybe put the rocks in a place of water flow?

What is the stock? You could try shrimp, they do a fantastic job of keeping my tanks clean.
