hi
remove the rock from the aquarium,attach the moss with either sewing cotton
or use fishing line.but secure it quite tightly so no fish can become intangled
it's not a nice thing to see !

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Can I stick it between two rocks where the fish can't get it so it grows out from there?

Hey no prob, i'm just starting out with planted tanks. Is it true that Java Fern must also be planted on a rock?
