Advice on Christmas moss
I'm getting Christmas moss and i do NOT have any lights above my tank. I've had some amazon sword in my tank for over 4 months now, and it's been slow growing but it's been living, so could my christmas moss live/grow without becoming too much of a problem? I'm planning on tying them to 2 coconut huts and a tree stump ornament. If i have very low light, will there be no algae problems in my tank? I do not want to strip my tank to clean. And also, my biggest fear is the christmas moss growing into my filters, what is the risk of this happening?

wait.... so you dont have any light over your tank? but you have the tank near maybe a window where sun gets in right?

Yes, indirect sunlight

$5 per golfball size. Spend $20 and you get 1 portion addition free (Ex. buy 4, get 1 free) Shipping's $5.50 priority mail. BUT the guy has snails in the tank.. I haven't bought from him yet for that reason. Still deciding if i wanna risk having snails run the tank:/ Here's his link.
