    Default How to Prune Java Moss ????


    0 Not allowed!
    When I first tied my $10.00 worth of java moss to my driftwood awhile back I felt like I had to go out and buy me some more to fill the other spots I wanted the Java to grow on. Now I'm looking at a big nice looking bush which has taken over the driftwood. I bought some long handled scissors for pruning plants. I have just finished doing a search in the moss section but there does not seem to be alot of info on how to prune your java moss. I can already see it's going to mess up the 55 gallon tank.
    My plan is to turn off both my filters and air stone. Using the scissors cut some two inches off the java moss and try and catch the off cuts in a medium sized fish net.
    Any other hints before I start this little endeavour this coming weekend?

    try to grab the stuff you don't want anymore in one hand while you cut it with the other hand. That should keep most of it from floating every which way.

    Most of us spend a lot of time with our hands in our tanks. So long as your hands are clean, it's not a problem.

    Wash your hands before you put them into the tank, especially if you wear lotion or stuff like that. After you are done doing whatever you want in your aquarium, wash your hands again and with soap.

    I just tear most of mine off the driftwood (carefully) and let it grow back... Although its becoming a problem as I'm running out of room for the stuff.
