:What type of moss do you use? Is it alive or the dead stuff they sell for decoration? And do the roots of the plants eventually grow through the egg crate or just on top of it? Thanks.
: : Thick spagnum moss used in gardening. The decrative stuff is thinner and more expensive. I usually get mine from home depot they sell it next to the potting soils. The plants will eventually root through the egg crate and through the lava rocks. Eventual the whole filter becomes like one living organism.
