Splitting Java Moss, Keeping Moss Seperate!

Parkerbenz

I recently set up a 75 gallon tank with cherry shrimp, a pair of bristlenose plecos, and some moss. I have one VERY large portion of java moss (about 16 inches long, 12 inches wide, and 10 inches tall) and a (minI basketball?) portion of christmas moss. Both mosses are loose, and I am trying to figure out how I can portion them out to grow and sell. The christmas moss can probably just be spread out and tied to something, but the cluster of java moss is just too massive to tie it to anything. Anyone know of a good way to break up my java moss? What are some cheap items that I can tie the moss to, so that I could eventually sell it?

maybe just a large branch? then when you go to sell it you can just cut the branch up and sell in portions, and charge more since it’s already attached

Rocks would work and easy to portion it off

How about some terra-cotta water spikes or pots? Both are aquarium safe and really cheap. You can also buy cheap driftwood from china on Ebay, around a dollar for a small piece.

Ooh these are all awesome ideas! Cutting up a branch with moss on it might be a little tricky, but would definitely look pretty neat in the tank. Ill look into ebay for small driftwood, terracotta, and rocks!

Just ordered some 2-3” rocks, and 1-2” driftwood collected from lake erie. Ill just make sure to thoroughly clean all of it before use!

I'd buy that

Well unfortunately the seller on ebay decided not to ship out my order, or any orders places in the past couple weeks! Back to finding stones/driftwood!
If anyone has suggestions on where I can find small stones/driftwood, I'm all ears! (More like I'm all eyes, but whatever)

See if there is a landscaping supply place nearby. They usually sell things like gravel by the cubic yard for driveways but many carry multiple types of stone as well. Most are willing to sell smaller amounts for very cheap.
 

WTFish?

One of mine is tied to a small square of coconut shell.
