Flame Moss
 
Flame Moss - what do people typicaly attach it to? Typical gravel substrate? Rocks? Clay pot fragments forming a hidy hole for bashfull critters? Driftwood? All of the above?

Secondly, how do you anchor it (or do you ned to?) until it grabs hold on it's own so currents in the tank don't carry off someplace unwanted? For instance, would you tie it down with 100% cotton thread like you would tie Anubias down to a piece of driftwood or rock?

Thank you in advance 8-)

First All of the above Second you can use Thread nylon is better I use fishing line if I do logs and twigs. I like hair netting for rocks or anything curved. Some times I use the gel super glue it turns white put after a bit you do not see it. I am going to put up my new tank I just did Its not quite finished but have a look.:-)

I've just ordered some flame moss, going to attach it to driftwood with tiny elastic bands (easier than messing with nylon string i find)
