Re: [APD] Christmas Moss
If all I wanted was a substrate for a moss wall, I'd skip
the bouyant cork and just use mesh or eggcrate.
As for cork panels, I don't have any stress test info. So I
can't say when it is or isn't alright. It's just that I've
had the rims from small tanks come off in my hands when I
didn't mean for then to do that. "Hello, what's this?"
On a 29, unless it was an Oceanic, I would drain down the
water as far as I could and silicone the panels in place.
The would still be reasonably easy to remove but I would
not be relying on just the rim to hold the pannels in
Or, if I was feeling espeically daring, I might try pulling
on the rim to see if it held up to 20 or so pounds of pull.
If so, then I'd not worry about the rim coming loose.
