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                

                                                                                       WARNING
 
 DO  NOT  USE  HAIRNET.
 It  is  a  death  trap,  I  lost  two  fishes,  and  one  loach  is  badly  injured(seems  to  have  recovered  now).
 They  get  entangled  in  this  hair  net  while  nibbling  on  moss.

 Is  that  java  moss  tied  up  on  the  rocks  on  the  right  and  side  ?  and  is  that  a  mesh  on  the  wall  at  the  back  ?
 How  is  that  slope  made  out  ?  Have  u  placed  any  obstruction  hidden  inside  the  gravel  to  hold  back  the  shape  ?
 
 please  keep  us  updated  abt  this  from  time  to  time.  Would  love  to  see  it  growing.

 Tank  has  got  Taiwan  moss  for  the  moss  wall  and  Java  moss  on  the  wood.  We  have  used  beach  sand  which  packs  tightly  so  the  slope  wont  get  disturbed  unless  you  introduce  fishes  like  corydoras.

 Hi  guys,
 
 temperature  has  always  been  a  big  issue  for  us  in  chennai  which  has  prevented  us  from  growing  moss.  This  tank  is  setup  in  my  office  and  the  water  is  generally  cooler.  It  is  day  4  today  and  it  looks  like  the  taiwan  moss  are  slowly  coming  out  of  the  mesh.  I  will  be  doing  the  DIY  co2  today.  Going  to  use  the  traditional  yeast  brew  method.  Will  keep  you  guys  posted....

 Taiwan  moss  growing  out  of  the  mesh  in  4  days  is  your  imagination  Venket.
 
 Check  if  the  moss  is  rotting  away.

 How  has  taiwan  moss  being  placed  on  the  ,esh?
 Have  you  used  a  net  over  mesh?
 My  experiment  with  hairnet  over  netlon  turned  out  to  be  disaster.

 Hi  Sandeep,
 I  beleive  the  moss  needs  to  be  sandwiched  between  two  layers  of  netlon.    it  need  to  be  tied  in  between  also,  so  that  the  two  layers  of  netlon  are  hold  tight  together.  Suckers  need  to  be  fitted  in  between  spread    throughout  the  netlon.  You  need  to  ensure  there  is  almost  nil  gap  between  the  netlon  and  the  back  glass,  otherwise  it  can  trap  your  fish.  The  bottom  portion  of  the  netlon  can  be  covered    with  the  substrate.  The  netlon  net  is  not  the  usual  one  which  is  used  to  block  mosquitoes..  but  the  gaps  are  a  bit  bigger  5mm  to  8mm  I  think  should  be  enough.  Madan  said  that  its  used  in  tea  plantation  industry(made  by  the  same  company  netlon)
 
 Anybody  with  practical  experience  with  moss  wall  correct  me  if  I  am  wrong.
 
 Regards

 Hi  All,
   Thanks  to  nikhil,  Got  some  taiwan  moss  yesterday.
 
 I  came  up  with  my  own  carpet  idea  for  my  new  moss  bed.  
 
 I  had  just  munched  in  the  awsome  Krishna  sweets  in  bangalore  Cheering  
 
 And  was  about  to  throw  away  the  boxes.  But  then  thought  about  growing  the  moss  in  that  plastic  boxes.
 
 I  had  just  then  setup  the  laterite  in  my  new  tank,  Just  took  a  bit  of  them,  may  be  a  cm  of  it  went  into  the  box  first  .  Then  also  had  a  conditioned  coco  peat  plates  in  my  new  aquarium  which  i  just  took  it  off  and  had  the  next  layer  which  is  sought  of  another  cm  in  the  box.  Then  took  in  some  coarse  gravel  and  had  close  to  .5  cm  layer  of  it  on  the  box  at  only  few  places.  I  then  carefully  distributed  the  entire  moss  on  the  gravel.  
 
 Thanks  to  my  wife  who  told  me  that  in  Bangle  shops  of  bagalore  we  get  a  cloth  called  Mety  cloth  used  for  embroidry  made  of  plastic.  Got  that  in  no  time,  And  i  wired  the  cloth  on  the  box  top.
 
 Hurray  my  set  up  was  ready  for  a  moss  bed  which  i  think  can  now  also  be  transported  to  other  tanks.    Clapping  
 
 Not  sure  if  this  works  well.  will  have  to  wait  and  see,  If  this  works  well,  Will  have  more  of  these  and  these  boxes  should  become  invisible  as  they  will  be  covered  at  a  later  point  of  time.
 
 Does  any  one  foresee  any  problem  with  this  setup.
 
 cause  prevention  is  better  than  cure.
 
 
 Raghu

 Not  really  a  problem  but  there  isnt  much  need  to  pamper  java  moss  so  much.
 It  is  not  that  demanding  plant  that  requires  rich  substrate  and  stuff  like  tat.
 I  am  not  sure  how  will  the  setup  really  help  it  to  grow  faster  than  normal.
 
 Nevertheless,  hope  u  get  a  good  moss  bed  soon  enuf.  
   Very Happy
