I have some wild live LFS collected from NY if ya want some of that. It's kinda "dormant" now, but it should be fine.
I think when this stuff doesn't become green and mooshy, I'll come begging, haha. Right now, though, my tan-ish LFS is turning into black LFS, I think my light might be too strong.
How do I keep the LFS well-watered without putting too much in for my D. capensis? Or will the moss just suck it all up before most of it gets to the actual media?
Can you have a pot for the capensis and a tray for the LFS?
lol...its funny...I love sphagnum.....here is a latest pic of some spag growing with my B 52......I hope to have a green carpet sometime soon....I got this from rick keehns at keehnscarnivores....he says its probably new zealand sphagnum.
I don't know how to get some of this live stuff anywhere....its soo hard to find live green sphagnum ..especially to buy it in canada. Consider the irony though, canada is one of the biggest producers of peat moss....lol! 100% canadian sphagnum peat.
My next project is to put a layer down on my tank. That should keep the humidity up too so I don't have to keep using a humidifer then huh?
The reason I started putting LFS in the bottom of my tanks was to increase humidity. I poured about 1/2 inch of water in the tank and let the moss wick the water up and provide humidity. My tanks were semi-sealed. It worked well AND I ended up with a thick green carpet on the bottom which sometimes ended up with little round-n-sticky-ums growing the moss below from stray seeds.
(I was looking for a "cool" smiley but sometimes a plain ol' smile one will have to do). hehe
