Thanks for posting this. The results speak for themself.
I tried this once years ago but instead of using a blender, I minced the moss with a knife. No good. I ended up growing a lot of fungus in a smelly tank.

What moss did you use? I think it works best with fine delicate mosses.


Yes fungus can grow need to increase ventilation and clean some with a cotton swab. But fungus should not be a problem after flooding. It will dissapear.

Fissidens fontanus. I minced the crap out of it. The blender + water is a more gentle approach for separating the moss.
Improper ventilation and lack of clean up was the culprit.
Iíll keep this video in mind in case I get back into scaping a high tech setup.
