Hey guys, im new to this forum and this hobby. I have a 20 gallon tank with a mayaca and some java fern. I have ordered some pellia that i plan on covering the rocks in my tank. I was also considering carpeting with some java moss. Now ive read up on articles that explain how to get some type of mesh and sandwich the moss in between the two pieces. Sounds all simple except for one thing: where can u get the plastic mesh from? I tried googling it but cant really find it. Does it matter that it has to be a hard plastic mesh or grid that doesn't bend or the soft ones which can be folded and stuff. Can you point to a store or an online one, or some retailer like Walmart or something else. Thanks!!!

I bought the mesh at Wall-mart but haven't seen at the store I went to lately. Some Wall-marts no longer have a fabric dept. Have you tried craft stores.

I am going to try tie java fern to lava rock. I found a bunch at Home depot, in the grill section, for about $3. Hoping it will leach some iron into my tank.

Tex Gall sells java fern at times. I got the needle version from her. It has long thin leaves and looks a bit like the Hygro willow.
