I'm not sure about across the pond, but here in the UK I think it would only be found in a fishing shop. Another alterntive would be nylon thread which you could probably get in a more general store :)

thanks ill look around. ill look around for any shops selling fishing equipment and see what i can get, if not ill try the nylon thread. thanks :D do you think the mesh that people use for a moss background would also work, if i was to bend it around a coconut or something along that lines? i don't really want to use metal incase it messes with my water

I don't see any reason why mesh wouldn't work, as long as it not wrapped round too tightly. What's the mesh made of - is it flexible?

I used mesh and sewed the moss on with a needle and nylon thread.

I used the craft mesh in the sewing dept. Its just a soft plastic and lots of people use it in their tanks. It even comes in green.
