Hi All,

I was thinking about doing something like this myself. I am setting
up my plant tank again (I recently moved) and have been taking my
time on my planted tank. Beside silicon cementing some teraces into
the bottom of the tank, I also cemented cork to the back and side of
the aquarium. I was planning on trying to get java moss to attact to
the cork, but I wasn't sure how to get it started. I don't like the
idea of metal staples in my tank. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.
