All my moss eventually gets sucked up into my filter intake and sticks there anyways, so I suppose I'll just leave it there now.

Lots of great suggestions here! I can't wait to try some. I loathe looking at the mechanicals, but since two of them (filter and power head) produce a lot of suction and current, I've been unsuccessful so far.

I just put cabomba in my tank 2 weeks ago and despite few ferts and low light it's growing like crazy over by the heater. Almost 18" already. I wonder if dropping it's needles is specific to water parameters?

I'm about to try some brazilian pennywort floating in front of the power head parallel to it's current ... I am not succeeding with photos so let me see if I can explain ... In my betta tank I took 2 bunches from the store, and trimmed them down where they branched. Now at each branch is a "v" shape, which hooks nicely around the heater cord and itself. I kind of wove it together a little and it looks very natural and interesting. Makes it densely leafy, so it's a better screen. It's been that way for 4 months and is doing well.

If in doubt, contact the manufacturer. Some links to the same question:

That explains why the heater works after being fully submerged a couple of times
