I am curious as to where you placed your heater. I can't tell if you have one in there or not from the pictures.

Sorry to hear about the tank it was very beautiful. :)

The tank was not heated. I live in South Florida, indoor temp is always around low to mid 70s in the Summer. The "Winters" (for lack of a better word) never get really cold. In the first post, I advise not to use this method with a heater, unless you are attaching it somewhere else.

I'm not worried about a rescape. The goal when I go to AGA in November, is to pick up some plants for a rescape. I should get on top of ordering some supplies for the rescape.

Love thid idea.
Can I ask did you thread it the piece of moss into and back out of the same hole each time or did you skip a few? I'd imagine you went the full effort and done every hole.

Nope, didn't do every hole. I only threaded enough so that the moss stayed in place.

I can't find the divider used for this moss wall anywhere. Can someone help me finding these dividers? I want to create a moss wall like this for my 20 gallon tank.

Oooh I like this idea. It’d have to be end walls as cable slots are on the back of lid. Plus my lid sits on an overhang which would prevent to ss clip method being used. Maybe suction cups on front and back walls would hold it up against side walls in a sideways style. Hmmm.

Looks great. I just think people have to know that it take much pruning to keep the moss flat. I've tried it on wood of course..and it goes from very nice and mossy log looks...to weedy if I don't cut it back often. Or..it even floats away in a clump that detaches. I take that for now and tie to other woods. After that? Might trade it to LFS.
Java moss is one of the greatest aquarium plants and I'm not complaining at all about its idiosyncrasies,but its not a no care plant that's all I'm saying.
