    I'm lazy so here is a link, http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...=125189&page=2, to alot of pic's of some of my Vivariums.

    As for harvesting moss, I would not do that, if you don't have moss growing already you probably don't have the conditions for it. If you have the conditions for it you will likely not want the moss . I removed about 1/2 cup of various mosses every week. Die moss Die!

    I would not wish the curse of moss on anyone .

    There are only a few useful mosses in my opinion sphagnum moss for instance, the rest are pesky weeds. Now aquatic mosses are another story, so long as they stay underwater. Real java moss is nice since its sterile and won't seed everything. If you have a moss that produces a stalk, its not java.

    A long time ago I thought "wow those moss covered pots look great" and introduced a few select ones into some tanks. Well there is no way to get them out...ever...completely dried out the tank, bleech, everything I could think of...and they came back nice and strong.

    Nothing like a nice healty seedling or tiny plant getting overrun by a weed!

    I'll stop my ranting or I could go on all day...

    Here's the bulk of my collection housed on two 6 ft tall x 4 ft wide x 18" deep metal shelf racks. Each shelf has a twin tube T5 HO fixture over it.

    Shelf #1
    Top: female Vampire Crab / Black color phase Violin mantis / Vampire crab pair with their first brood of babies / Tan phase Violin Mantis. The tanks have mix of CPs, mosses, orchids & other tropicals
    Middle: A. avicularia tarantula / CPs / all plant tank
    Bottom: Neps / individual terrestrial Utric deathcubes / Orchidioides Utrics




    Shelf #2
    Arboreal insects / an expired tank drying out before I restart it / 40 gallon cube which is just housing some terrariums for young mantids and so on.
    Middle shelf: 40 gallon breeder tank housing my large breeding colony of Geosesarma sp. "Red" Vampire Crabs and my N. ampullaria collection
    Lower shelf: Succulents / storage tub of small ferns / storage tub of small aroids and other small terrarium plants. Things are grown out in here and then pruned to plant the display tanks where they will either establish or fail but I still have a backup.



    In front of the window where it's a bit cooler I have a 20 gallon tank with mini orchids and my two HL Neps (N. jacquelinae & N. jamban). It's lit by side lighting from the two shelves & a 12" LED panel


    This is the LED panel I got off ebay for $35 w/ free postage, it's not anything wonderful hi-tech I guess it works. These orchids are kinda low light plants who turn yellow in bright light so I'm getting away with it.
