    Snails are not real problem to me ;-) Although, I must admit some will die during next tank rebuild :p
    What puzzles me much is that "hair" algae growing on the Eleocharis. But, at the same time, Corys seem to love it... :)

    Yep. All should be reused. Or maybe not... Depending on the hardscape I can achieve :p
    I already found someone who's interested by getting a bunch of that moss (when it'll be cleaned of snails ;)

    I'll probably start the new layout in a week or two.

    Hi ptiJo

    The moss looks great. Do you have to spray it everyday to keep it moist? Or does it sustain itself like that?

    Thanks

    That moss looks very much like a mini fern, is it as delicate as it looks?

    @chiangstar: It runs its life alone ;-) All I do is refill water once a week. Water never gets higher than the vertical glass part that can be seen on pic#1. And water nearly never gets under the DW level.
    @keithgh: hum... not really. When I take some bits away, I use aquascape pinsettes and just select a "leaf" and pull. I can hardly remember a leaf that broke. Most of time, I end with a 5-10cm moss bit.
