    I seperated some Java Moss into a bag a few weeks ago, and as time went on I forgot about it. Well, I rediscoved this same bag today. In it I discovered copepods and flat worms. It's rather exciting! I love things like this =3

    I guess nothing?

    It's like one of those impressively cool things that are actually useless except to brag you have.

    lol, you know I already have that done in all my tanks XD
    It grows so fast I'm starting to just throw it away (altho I might have killed the Tiger's moss so eh >.>; )

    I use wine corks and fishing line and tie it to the corks...then it floats and trails down in the water, very pretty and fry cover and I can use a bit of line to attach the cork where in the tank I want it to float so it doesn't go into the filter

    I've seen similar done at petstores, moss balloon balls.
    Good idea with the cork!

    how much do you want for that baggie full? stop throwing it out, alot of people want it. I throw nothing away in my planted tank, if i cant use it someone else can and its pretty much free money.

    I know =P But I like it as it is and will leave it as so, lol
    I'm surprised I'm not seeing any increases in life. Only two copepods and flat worms each. Odd,eh?
