    Growing Mosses

    yeah, well I am keeping them in few mm of water, with lid on and it keeps moisture up inside. I had some willow moss which was submersed and yellow, thought it was dead, put it as above emersed, within a week it was green again. Hence convinced me. Mind Hoteweldfire technique on the previous...

    Growing Mosses

    Not that I am aware, to be honest all the plats that you will buy, be it tropica, etc etc, are all emersed grown before they arrive to you or the retailers, but yeah, could adjust it by adding water bit by bit till fully submersed before transferring to tank if you were really worried. I dont...

    Growing Mosses

    I have started to grow my moss partially emersed, with about mm or two of water to keep moisture up and the results are far better then submersed. Trying it with some flame moss, hopefully it grows considerably.

    I think i will be planning a flame moss patch/corner, but if the tank didnt have gravel/clay, thinking of making the most of the subtrate? :thumbup:

    Carpet plant options

    Marsilea Hirsuta seems to be my fave choice so far. Utricularia graminifolia is another mentioned but think it isnt as easy as others.

    Do Snails eat pelia?

    all my other plants are fine, just my pelia was targeted, my only assumption is the pelia was in bad health and was demolished in the sign of weaknesses in the plant. I am worried about puting my last pad in and it getting wiped but cant leave it out of tank as it wont do great out of tank...

    Elodea densa

    I always found it grew well for a few weeks, then died away. I did ask in here, and answer was it ran out of nutrients. So it isn't as low tech, well. Maybe too much light and not enough food.

    Best/cheapest way to attach moss to something

    Paint?, sounds interesting, keen to know how that is done. I have brown cotton, just need some stones to attach too. Shower cap sounds interesting. Next time I'm in a hotel will grab. I got some bog wood, want to attach to that. So string might be best, I hear I can.use super glue? Thanks

    Best/cheapest way to attach moss to something

    Pebble based UGF Tropical

    Thanks guys, I think its a T5, It could well be the light is too much, the leaves grow differently in the tank with the light. Leave are long and narrow, and ligter in colour. I can switch the UGF off, no problems. UGF doesnt create bubbles, but draws all the water through the gravel. same...

    Pebble based UGF Tropical

    I just have a standard white 35w tube light on the tank, i always thought it wasnt bright, as I have failed to grow certain planst due to lack of light. I have currently switched off the UGF but was intending to switch it back on, as I do beleive it breaks down the crap at the bottom of the...
