looks awesome but i feel like cleaning is going to be a pain and it wont last for a long time will it? The original moss you started with will die after it starts growing out of the mesh. Then it will rot and the moss wall will fall off and the rotting moss will pollute your tank. no? Also your mesh looks really fine, will the moss be able to grow out of it?

Nice video. I did a moss wall myself. I've just one comment to add.
I used clear suction cups and for some reason they turned white. The white cups up against my black background looked awful until the moss covered them, which took quite awhile. I used the larger squared mesh in black.
I used Christmas Tree moss which, IMO, is a slow grower. Of course the smallest fish in my tank managed to get stuck behind the wall and the boyfriend destroyed the wall getting the fish out. I was on vacation at the time and if I was home I'm not sure I would have destroyed the wall. Before I left on vacation the moss wall was looking really nice and I was looking forward to posting pics when I returned.
Anyway, long story short, I took the entire wall out and will be trying again next week, this time with black suction cups.
Looking forward to seeing pics of your tank once the wall has a chance to grow.

Hey crisis and aunt kymmie, thanks for your comments. Haha, I'm still waiting for the moss to grow, yeah initially I doubt that it will grow coz of the small mesh, but, that's the only option I had at that time, so I just give it a try. Maybe might take sometime to grow though.....I will post some pics when it grows.....thanks :)

is there a way to do this that keeps the moss flush against one side of the glass? or a hanging method that distributes evenly?

Hmm...not sure, but I guess with well spread moss and enough lighting, it will distribute evenly

kind of off topic, but does anyone here know if java moss will grow downwards if hung at the top of the wall?or will it just stay clumped?
