    I have long been trying to get a decent moss wall started, but keeping it neat and preventing the moss from escaping and spreading throughout the tank has proved to be impossible.
    The moss wall was in a tank for about 6 months, and never proved very successful.

    I tried making a wall from Susswassertang, but using double walled netting, the Susswassertang tended to grow between the 2 platic walls, resulting in the wall bulging.

    The third attempt is a single piece of plastic mesh, with the Susswassertang glued to the mesh, and the mesh reinforced with plastic file binders.
    Hopefully in a month or so I will have a solid wall of Susswassertang.

    I am using it in a grow-out tank that has CPD fry, Assassin Snails and feeder shrimp.
    Hopefully this will give me the look that I want.

    @Pezulo, that is looking awesome.

    I think its going to work... you can see its got loads of growth already and its not bending
    Great idea
