NOOOOO!!! Mossballs are brilliant! Don't drop them. . .
I've always regarded my Mossies more like animals than plants. They're fuzzy and they end up moving or being moved all around, either by the current, the keeper, or even the fish. I have them in every one of my tanks, and they all have names, because they're SO SUPER CUTE!!!
*giggle* Mossballs are the greatest!
Well, I guess moss balls have their fans.
I was going to post about the plant vs non-plant ammonia issue but I think it's been covered as it isnt a matter of right or wrong, Any method or variation should take into account all of the factors and I was making suggestions based on Zombie's plan to have plants anyway.
Regardless of the next steps, I think your tank is going to be a super looking setup and I am looking forward to seeing it progress.... Moss balls and all.
