Fish getting caught up in Java Moss?
Anyone ever have this happen? Do any of you let your Java Moss go kind of wild in your tanks or do you only keep small "groomed" amounts? I have let mine kind of get crazy on the bottom as I like how it looks. I have noticed that it is a favorite spot for "Sailor" my Sailfin Pleco to sleep. Kind of like a nice fluffy feather bed for fishes.
I do have some concerns however. I have noticed the Corie's seem to have a little difficulty making their way through the moss. The tank is large enough and the Moss is in only certain areas that they COULD avoid it. Should I be worried that they could get stuck in the Moss? Is it possible for it to damage them? Kind of like a giant Burdock bush that grabs hold of a small animal?
