    This has been, by far, the hardest task of my life. It's currently 3:30 am too. God bless.

    Why did't you tie it by the roots XD? I've never done this before, and I am now scared to buy java moss for my driftwood.

    Oh :p, well good luck. I once decided to re arrange my HEAVILY PLANTED 20 gallon at 1:00 AM. My pearl gourami, who is a very heavy sleeper wasn't bothered too much. But my shrimp and zebra danios were swimming and hopping all over the place, usually they are okay with my hand but in this case they couldn't see it. Woke up the next morning, tank looked good, albeit cloudy. But I realized I had made a little puddle on the ground next to the tank and now have a water stain in the carpet. Midnight aquarium keeping, good times.

    Nothing worse then tying!!!! I will take the white spots left behind by the glue anytime!

    I've had a java fern floating behind a piece of driftwood for over a month, simply because I don't want to pull it all out and retie/glue it! I've done both and think I prefer tying. I clipped thebthread and glued it. The glue came undone.

    I use tying over glue. Every time I would glue it would come apart after a bit. So go close to the roots but not too close if that makes any sense

    The trials of underwater gardening. Tying what a pain. It seems like it takes forever, need a 3rd hand. But it works. I have tried cable ties seems to work for me. I have never tried gluing.
