Hey guys, I was wondering what kind of mesh to use when i want to make a carpet kinda thing with moss. Ive seen people use it before, but I've always worried about the metal rusting in the water. Anyone know what kind of metal mesh I can use that would cause harm to the fish tank and to things that live in it. (most likely shrimps)

Any idea where i can get stainless steel mesh?
Jeremy at Oregon Aqua sells it. He's really a good guy. Here is his link.

The stainless steel screen works better than the fiber glass because its heavier and will stay down. It can also be bent around rocks, limbs, etc.... or remain flat. Of course, I guess depending on your application maybe the fiber glass might work better...:rolleyes:

I use a plastic mesh that comes in 1 foot squares. Works great for tying down moss. I pick mine up at a local fabric show here in San Diego called "Micheal's". I would think most craft and or fabric shops would carry them. About a buck.
