I am starting a new 10 gallon tanks and I am wondering if I can cover the gravel with Java Moss hOw much gravel do I need in the bottom and do I still have to vacume the gravel if it is covered in Java Moss?

I mean, you CAN do it. I've noticed that Java moss doesn't really 'carpet' persay, it just kind of grows in clumps that eventually reach out into the water column looking for something else to attach to. Just looking around on the internet I've seen that some people use mesh-like nets to keep it down.
You would still have to vac the moss lightly to get debris up but not too much as to pull the moss.

Thanks, I'll look into it. I haven't decided wether or not I am going to do a carpet yet but I may still use some Java Moss.
