    I have seen packets of moss which resemble christmas moss at Petmart selling quite cheaply at $5 (quite a lot of moss in the bag). You have to tie the moss yourself to driftwood or rocks.

    Bioplast sells this nice Xmas moss variety, and though it may not be the cheapest, I think you could probably get a nice bundle for less than $20, bits of which could be attached at regular intervals to your mesh.

    I don't think it's necessary to cover every square inch of the mesh from the start. For one, if your tank conditions happen to be unfavourable, the moss will die off and your $$'s down the drain. On the other hand, if your moss thrives, they will fairly quickly spread all over the mesh by themselves.

    the Bioplast moss I find does well in medium to bright light (1.5-2.4 wpg) and likes coolish water (26-27 C). A couple of fans should be enough.

    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.
