    This is a super scape.
    Did you use DSM? for how long?
    If not, how did you attach the moss to the rocks and the ground? Hats off, boss.
    What moss? Fissidens fontanus? You would have to trim so much :)

    Sorry, I asked so many questions. I love this scape. Fishes are too big for the scape?

    Very nice work here. The moss on the rocks give the impression they have been there forever.

    Hey!

    Very nice!

    When did you make this setup? It's not so long ago?
    And which kind of hairgrass do you use in the background?

    Please update often.

    cheers
    Eva

    Hi All,

    I introduce one way of my friend how to attach minifissiden to rock or carpet, my English not good enough to explain detail so please see pictures

    First step
    Set up your hard scape whatever you want

    [​IMG]

    Wash the fiss

    [​IMG]

    Use grinder to grind the fiss

    [​IMG]

    Spay the water to moist the fiss, rocks and carpet

    [​IMG]

    Rub the fiss that grinded to the rock

    [​IMG]

    Remain fiss put on gravel



    [​IMG]

    Cover tank with anything to keep the fiss/rock ... moist


    [​IMG]

    After 5-7days you can fill the water

    [​IMG]

    After three weeks

    [​IMG]

    very interesting and clever.

    Fissidens tends to be a very hardy moss. I know that it has grown back on rocks that were dry and stored for months when they were placed back into an aquarium.

    How could that miss my mind?
    That was the only possible way. Very nice, though I have heard of it many times but I am seeing the beautiful effect for the first time. Kudos.

    I have heard people using milk or beer in that paste. Maybe someone will come up with such experiments.

    Super skills.^:)^

    Very nicely done Aquascape! This method to accrue the rocks with the fissi seems to work good. I'll try this some day. Thanks!

    Very nice scape and smart technique!
    Is this a low tech scape or does it require co2, ferts and high lighting?

    This has to be one of my favorite all time scapes. What kind of rock are you using? Lava rock?

    I love the way moss is growing, its so natural.

    I have grown terrestrial mosses this way(ground with yogurt and soil), but was hesitant trying out aquatic mosses. I'll certainly do this in my future scapes. thanks!
