Star and Weeping Moss
Hey guys, first of all, hello. I just just joined the other day.

I have a few quick questions in regards to moss. I decided to go with something new, so I ordered Weeping and Star Moss. I have never grown any type of moss before and I am looking for any tips or recommendations. I have 3 WPG, I am EI Dosing, and I am injecting CO2. My photo period is 9 hours.

My plan is to put the Star Moss on my driftwood and the Weeping Moss on my Lava Stone over my cave to create some sort of water fall effect.

What would be the best method to attach the moss? Fishing line or natural fiber string?

Hopefully this wont turn into the disaster I had with my Baby Tears, my Red Zebra mowed it down like a weed wacker :-D, carnage.

Where did you order this moss from?

Use cotton thread. It will disintegrate in time after the moss has attached itself.

Aquatic Magic, this is the first time I have ordered from them. They were recommended so I figured I would give them a try.

Unfortunately there are no LFS's around. Well there's Petco, but I wouldn't even even consider them an option.

Here is an Aquatic Magic review thread.

Ha ha, I actually found that thread amusing, well if and when I get my moss, maybe I will try another company next time.
