Re: Is this moss ok?

I can't say I've personally tried it, so it could be totally fine, I'm just not a fan of handling creepy crawlys, and after having an ant infestation this last summer, I'm overly cautious about bugs. You mentioned hawaiath green moss, I can switch the Spanish to green moss, flukers makes both. Is t...

Unfortunately I would not suggest using spanish moss... After a quick search of the forum I would this excerpt from another post from a very knowledgeable, and long time crabber. You can get some a large bag of hiawatha green moss from home depot for about 6 bucks, many crabbers like that brand, an...

Re: Is this moss ok?

Lichen is the result of a symbiotic relationship between a blue-green algae (a plant) and a fungi (and according to new research, sometimes a yeast, too). It takes many forms - it is those spots of colour and patches of crispy stuff on rocks and trees. It grows in long beardy wispy clumps on conife...

Salt water

So I use the zoo med drinking water conditioner and the salt water conditioner. Today I smelled the salt water and couldn't smell it so I dipped my finger in it and tasted it(it was fresh) and it didn't taste of salt at all. I'm making it exactly as it says. Is this normal?

Re: Mr Moss Pit

I use sphagnum moss as well but mine is all brown and stringy. Must be a different brand that's yours! I will need to look for some of the one you have. Beautiful! Love the fairy garden theme! I read on the guidelines here that Spanish moss is good, I just ordered some from fosterandsmith so I hope...

Re: I got it fixed

I bought some reindeer moss from a craft store tonight it's real but I am unsure if it's safe after reading the guidelines here. Anyone know of this is safe http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161015/ec0d1a45854c6249b94851c0a7339584.jpg http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161015/ceec2ff005019b24c24fa721...

Re: Exo Terra Terrarium - What to do with all this height?

I can't get my net to stay on with suction cups. Can't get them to stick for long. Any ideas?
