well, i was thinking if the moss would grow downwards and drap itself, then it would make a wall eventually and fish tah go behind it will be able to swim out, like a curtain.

if it can work like that, there could be a whole other level of decorating... like bubble wands with java moss draped over it creating a layer to separate a part of the tank, perhaps a semi-entrance to a cavish or darker part of the tank? perhaps LEDs behind the moss to create a kelp forest light effect?

Great idea man!....Probably will try doing something like that when I have a new tank .....but as far as i know, I don't think moss grow downwards.....but maybe there's other plant that do, some floating plant roots might be able to do the curtain job? Like the curtain idea....cheers man!

Hmm let me know how this works out! I have officially...let me get out my measurin' truck...23.468 truckloads of java moss that I need to find something to do with. A moss wall sounds like a cool idea.

I don't think it will grow downwards. All of the java moss I have tends to grow, well, outwards, I guess. In sort of an underwater Afro fashion.

yea thats what i suspected... guess gravity wont help much.. I current have a 1 inch strand of javamoss that im trying to grow in a 1 gallon tank. Its not really taking off, in fact some fo it look like its browing :-/ I wont be able to try the curtain idea for a while.

does anyone know whether the moss needs much light for it to grow? the fine mesh IMO will block alot of the light out

the mosses need very little light to grow, the more they receive the better the growth will be............I have a few ideas for a moss wall that im gonna be experimenting with here in a few weeks......I will let everyone know of my progress

If you have some java moss you have nowhere to use it, give me a shout. I"m looking for some.

java moss is the easiest plant to keep. Awsome growth bell curve, even if you get a 1 inch strand of it, it will grow. Its slow at first but once its acclimated, the plant just keeps growing and growing. Im currently growing a small ball in my 1.5 gallon tank and I'm hoping to create that moss curtain effect...

As for the curtain, if i get some fishing line and make guide wires from one area to another, will my moss grow along the length of the wire to expand or would it still grow in a clump? anyone know?
