View Full Version : Fire moss and maintenance

05-12-2011, 11:16 AM
Ok so while planning which plants I'm doing and where they are going to go (eventually LOL) I decided I really like carpet plants and fire moss (jots some of them) so I have low light which isn't enough for carpet plants. So I'm going to make a moss wall, without suction cups and lay it on the bottom-a diy low light carpet. So a question arose.

It will be on the bottom of the tank with driftwood on top of it. What of gravel syphoning and disturbing the Tahitian moon sand/Eco complete combo? Will I have to take the driftwood out and lift the mesh with the fire moss out to move it around? Those are my 2 questions.
I don't want to take out the dw with the whole layout and some plants on it. Hmmm...

I think you could just vacuum around the moss and driftwood and be okay. Most people with planted tanks only vac a portion of the substrate, so they don't disturb the plants.
