something like that? But I know EXACTLY
what you mean, and the frustrations of not being able to find the ideal rock, lol!
a 2 person job, for sure. And my other is usually not around when I'm fiddling with the tanks - it's kind of planned that way, cuz' I give him heart-failure toting big ol' buckets of water around, lol! I have used fishing twine - and you can't see it, easy enough to remove. MY issue with that stuff is that it's hard (for me) to get the knot tight enough, since it's a plastic kind of thread? I know people DO this, but the knots ALWAYS slip when I do *shrugs* There must be a tequnique that I'm missing here, lol! And Jen - I do prefer to wedge stuff in - the natural approach, neh? But there isn't always a way to do that, then you're stuck, lol! Moss. .. is kind of fragile, as in the individual strands will break fairly easily, but by its nature it can root from anywhere, and is fairly hard to kill, so. . . *shrugs*
