Beware that fishes can get trap behind the net... especially small fishes.

hi,

best to have the square/checker tank cover for lohan tank + moss + the plastic mesh with cable tie => simplest + fastest + safest for fish.

hubby will tie horizontally and also vertically, cos mine is a upright wall for the sides. Just be extra careful that the moss dun drop. As for base, either vertical or horizontal will do

Must really becareful with fishes being caught in the moss wall. Had one guppy died cos caught in it. So now I used extra moss to *stuff* up places where the fish can swim in to play

hope no more deaths after that.

tks dorothy, sorry you meant the securing lines or the moss itself,
do the moss grow in 1 direction (in the direction of the pointed head)
or does it grow all directions?
