    Appearance is subjective and what looks good to me may not to you.

    Any of them will grow on the substrate but will have to be pinned down.

    flame would grow upwards..like a grass. Wouldn't be good for the background imo.

    I don't know first hand but I have read on other forums that people will use flame moss as a background. They claim that it will grow out from the background and not up towards the light.

    I kinda find that hard to believe...Flame grows upwards (hence the name flame) and towards the light...So logically if you affix it to something for background usage it should grow upwards towards your lighting rather than outwards. I dunno, that's my logic?

    I wouldn't recommend the other one because it tears VERY easily...and will clog your filter. It is however a really fast grower and if you dose it with co2..lookout!

    Here's that guy who sells on ebay that others were talking about (aquatic Magic)...he carries a bunch of mosses, but others have said that it will take a while to receive...however they have also said that his customer service is top notch and that the plants arrive very well?

    Oh, I didn't mean it like that...I was just stating I couldn't see it working out. I'd have to see a few photos of it actually being done/working first. :confused:

    usually the online stores have a checkout where you can click the paypal icon to pay..that will automatically pull you to the sign-in page on your paypal account...sign in and it will show the total and basically ask if the default payment method (ie. bank account) and ask you to confirm. Etc Etc Etc
