  1. Default Best Material for Java Moss Fence?


    0 Not allowed!
    I've got an idea for an aquascape and I'd like a natural looking fence of java moss, but I need something for it to grow on.

    1) It needs to be pliable so I can bend it into shape.
    2) It should be heavy enough to stay sunken without having to put a lot of weight on it.
    3) It will obviously have to be rust/corrosive/fish death proof.
    4)And it should preferably be available in mass quantity for low cost.

    I was thinking using plastic mesh liner and a steel bar tied onto the bottom to keep it sunken. Anyone else got a better idea?

    needle point plastic grid, won't require much weight at all, maybe a small stone or 2 tied along the bottom and buried in the substrate

    fissiden fontanus would be even better than java
    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    I've also heard of gutter covering. It's black, too.

    You should be able to find both of those at a hardware store. If you look around you'll probably be able to find all kinds of base materials that you can make a moss fence with. Pretty much any plastic type screen will work.

    I've also heard of people using nylon cheese cloth to make shaped fences. You can weave plastic rods through the cloth to hold it up then weave it around objects in the tank. A friend of mine has his tank setup with a small maze that his corries love to play and hide in.

    Your local craft store, if you have one, has all kinds of stuff you can use in your tank! I've used the needle point grids that Algenco mentioned for creating moss walls/carpets, and they aren't too pricey and come in many variations. If you have a Michael's, or Beverly craft near you, check em out. My local Beverly craft before it shut down used to have laterite at less than half the price its sold at my LFS' I never understood why they had laterite when they sold only fake plants.
    No matter how much I learn or know I'm still gonna be a NOOB, but that doesn't mean I'm an idiot!

    Not neccesarily, If your talking about flourescent light fixtures, they instantly become worth 5 to 10 times as much! LOL
