How to tie/plant christmas moss to stump/log
Hey, i'm gonna be getting 5 golf ball portions of christmas moss for a 10G and a 5G tank and i want to tie it down to 2 coconut shells and a tree log/stump. I'm gonna use fishing line for it. But how do i go about doing so? Do i just hold it down against the "object" and tie it down and i'm good or what? I do not want an uncontrollable amount of moss in my tank so how can i do so? And how do i trim it without getting it to spread around to other parts of the tank? Worst case scenario is the moss goes into my filter and grows there!D:

Over time,,the thread ,hairnet, will rot away but moss should be attached by then assuming conditions are favorable for the plant.
To trim it were it me,, I might shut filter off, and cut it back so that light can penetrate throughout when need be. Then I would perform water change and net out what I could while water is draining.
Might also use Pe-filter sponge over the intake for the filter to help keep filter media cleaner for longer.
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
