 "Deshaped  bricks"?  No  idea  what  those  are  so  I  can't  comment  on  them.  The  stones  in  my  tank  were  picked  up  from  a  stream  bed.

 I  mean  the  bricks  with  are  badly  shaped,  are  thrown  away  at  furnace.  I  brought  loads  of  them  to  make  caves  in  my  cichlid  tank.  You  may  view  them  in  the  community  tank  pic  in  my  post  "pics  of  my  jewel  family".

 If  they're  safe  for  your  tank,  then  I  think  it  should  be  fine  for  your  moss  as  well.  Try  tying  a  little  moss  to  one  brick.  Based  on  how  it  fares,  you  can  proceed  with  the  others  as  well.

   Smile  No  problem  that,  Abh_123.
 
 
 Manu1979  You  can  tie  the  moss  to  anything  or  you  can  grow  it  free  floating.
 Round  hard  rocks  are  normally  used  since  bricks  get  softer  and  can  chip  out.  Anyway  you  can  use  bricks  if  you  fancy  them.

 Faced  the  same  problem.
 
 Couple  of  week  back,  I  took  out  some  Taiwan  Moss  from  my  fridge  &  kept  in  my  planted  tank  tied  on  round  rocks  &  it  became  yellow/brown  in  few  days.
 
 My  tank  temp  was  between  26-28  degree.  Sad

 Regarding  the  moss  in  the  bowl.
 
 Change  the  water  every  week.
 Try  not  to  disturb  the  moss.  Especially  during  water  changes.
 Temperature  is  important  since  the  water  is  less.  Keep  in  a  cool  place  if  possible.  No  direct  sunlight.

 Are  mosses  supposed  to  be  refregriated??
 Any  advantages  in  doing  that.
 Would  not  any  living  thing  die  from  such  a  huge  diff  in  temp,  when  taken  out  and  put  in  tank.

 Moss  do  not  die  easy.  They  will  take  time  to  acclimatise.  It  can  can  take  extremes.
 Do  not  deep  freeze.  Smile

 Refrigeration  -  People  have  tried  this  to  save  it  from  extreme  temperatures  &  it's  worked.  Though  I've  never  done  this,  I  guess  it's  more  like  putting  them  in  hibernation.  
 
 I  had  a  piece  of  driftwood,  with  java  moss  left  in  wedges,  lying  in  hot  sun  for  over  a  year.  When  the  driftwood  was  reintroduced  into  aquarium  the  JM  came  back  to  life  a  month  later.
 
 IMO  not  all  moss  varieties  are  hardy.  Probably  need  to  try  Chuckle.
