Having to tear it apart if part of it dies. Fish get caught behind it. Unatural coling and structure supports. Lighting it evenly. Anarobic spots from lack of flow. Food and other gunk geting caught and creating ammonia spikes.

Thats about all I can think off that can go wrong. All are possible but all of them are fairly easy to prevent.

Sure it is worth it. If you can get it to work, which shouldn't be that hard, just a little work, then it will look awesome. Just make sure to install it right and keep up on maintaining it. I do suggest something other than Java moss though. Willow moss or some other one with longer fronds and less of tendency to die off underneath would be easier to maintain.

Yes, Java moss was just an example of moss you could put as your moss background, although you could use any that pleases you...

I remember seein a java fern "wall" on another forum. Other mosse can also be used. Some are much more appealing than java moss. Peacock moss is a very fast grower and a good choice.

moss

sounds like it would be a good idea to use with your divider in a double (or more) betta tank...might be worth a try just for that!

Hm-m-m, I was jes thinkin' that same thing...

Mixing in a bit of Lace Java Fern here and there would give more depth as well.
