 Hi,
 
 Found  this  image  on  APC  .  This  setup  won  the  prize  for  Best  AquaLayout  contest  held  on  the  forum.
 I  see  that  major  chunk  of  the  setup  is  nothing  but  Java  Moss.
 
 Any  ideas,
 How  has  this  been  achieved  ?
 I  wish  to  have  something  like  this  someday.
 
 
 
 
 PS:  I  hope  this  is  not  copyright  violation.  Please  let  me  know  if  it  is.

 It  is  Taiwan  Moss  there  and  not  Java  Moss.  Unless  the  data  that  accompanies  this  tank  says  it's  Java  Moss.
 
 Java  Moss  does  not  lend  itself  to  such  disciplined  growth.
 
 You  have  crosslinked  the  image,  so  no  copyright  violation,  but  APC  may  not  like  it.  Smile

 I  just  checked  the  site  and  found  that  the  plants  are  
 Vesicularia  dubyana  and  Eleocharis  acicularis
 So  it  is  java  moss.
 
 any  ideas  how  could  it  grow  in  a  disciplined  way  ?
 
 Should  i  just  mention  the  URL  of  the  image  instead  of  crosslinking  (  displaying)  it  over  here  ?

 Nice  setup...  Everybody  would  like  to  have  a  setup  like  this  one  day...  
 
 IMO...  You  can  grow  Moss/Riccia  tied  to  a  netlon  bed  to  bring  up  a  setup  like  this...  But  make  sure  to  add  some  stones  above  the  netlon  bed  to  keep  the  bed  always  on  bottom...  Smile  Any  how  you  have  to  prune  them  regularly...

 You  can  even  find  in  Killie.com  about  makin  Moss  Wall.
 
 Check  this  site  out  about  information  for  All  kinds  of  Mosses:

 Vesicularia  dubyana  =  Singapore  Moss
 Eleocharis  acicularis  =  Hair  Grass  
 
 PS:  Vesicularia  dubyana  is  not  Java  Moss.  Java  Moss  is  Taxiphyllum  barbieri    Smile

 My  ambition  for  a  planted  tank  is  to  someday  keep  plants  alive?

 Thanks  mate.
 I  had  come  across  these  sites  earlier.  I  am  more  cuious  to  know  how  could  the  aquascaper  achive  the  setup  in  the  pic.  If  it  was  a  flexible  mesh  that  he  used,  how  could  he  keep  it  anchored  in  once  place?
 Any  tools  for  anchor  are  not  visible.

 I  don't  think  he  would  have  used  a  mesh....  but  with  rocks  and  sand.......  wherever  the  moss,  rock  must  be  used  and  wherever  the  grass,  sand  must  be  used  as  substrate...........(may  be  I  am  wrong    Very Happy  )
