That is so awesome!! What kind of moss, how do you keep the twig from rotting?
This looks just like my 15 tall (the tank not the contents) So I believe you are right.
It is a couple of branches cut from a bush in my front yard ... I really just cut the branches and pulled the leaves off and then stuck it in the gravel. So it hasn't had time to rot yet, but if it does rot I will probably just get a different shaped branch, borrow some moss from the old one, and build it again.
the moss was labeled "java moss" at the local fish store ... but I know there are at least 2 different kinds of moss in there because one has "furry" strands and the other has smooth ones. I also have a little bit of baby tears stuck up in the branches ... not sure if it will like being out of the substrate, but i will see.
I love my tank! it is so peaceful to look at. my bf makes fun of me for staring at it for hours on end. :) i hope the moss grows all over the gravel like grass. then i will keep it "mowed" with scissors.
