 Java  Moss  was  thought  to  be  Vescicularia  dubyana,  atleast  what  was  going  around  in  the  hobby.
 
 Until  Loh  KL  and  Prof.  Tan  of  Singapore  started  studying  all  the  mosses  available  in  Singapore  LFS,  that's  when  Prof.  Tan  came  up  with  surprising  findings,  and  added  to  the  confusion  or  rather  cleared  up  the  confusion  you  could  say.  Very Happy  
 
 Now  if  you  don't  refer  to  Java  moss  as  Vesicularia  dubyana,  you  have  to  add  as  per  Prof.Tan's  study!  Very Happy  
 
 Java  Moss  and  Vescicularia  dubyana  have  become  so  synonymous.
 
 I  cannot  find  the  link  to  his  article,  I  have  the  magazines  where  his  article  were  printed.  Let  me  search.
 
 It's  impossible  for  a  hobbyist  to  differentiate,  you  need  a  high  powered  microscope  to  do  that.

 Well
 The  strands  do  not  look  like  java  moss;  they  are  far  too  disciplined  for  that.
 He  must  be  giving  military  training  to  his  moss
 I  have  recently  seen  a  picture  of  java  moss  in  peter  hiscok's  book,  with  a  similar  arrangement,  it    seems  to  be  growing  on  something  like  a  coconut  shell.  The  piece  is  not  that  big.
 It  might  be  that  a  sort  of  blue  print  out  of  acrylic  or  something  be  made.  Cut  into  pieces,  java  moss  grown  on  them.
 These  pieces  might  be  joined  after  java  moss  takes  hold  and  regular  pruning.  Very Happy  
 Well  my  java  moss  seems  to  do  exactly  opposite  of  what  I  want  it  too  be.

 I  think  we  have  diverted  Rohan's  primary  question....  
 
 someone  please  suggest  how  we  could  bring  this  kind  of  setup.........
 
 I  tried  Java  Moss  on  coconut  shell....  but  didn't  come  up  well...  they  didn't  form  a  thick  growth........

 I  have  used  plastic  net  used  for  needle  work.  Spread  moss  over  it  and  wrapped  a  hairnet  above  it.  it  looks  very  nice  for  now.
 The  only  problem  was  in  buying  hairnet,  actually  trying  to  explain  to  the  salesgirl  excatly  what  i  am  looking  for?  Chuckle  
 The  best  part  was  the  reaction  of  whole  store  when  i  actually  expalined  what  I  intended  to  do  with  hairnet.    ROFL    ROFL

 It  is  only  4-5  days,  too  early  to  tell.  But  even  now  it  looks  nice.  In  one  of  my  tanks  I  have  black  gravel  and  the  black  mat  looks  almost  invisible
