In Reply to: Java Moss, posted by beccadvorak on April 14, 2003 at 22:59:47:
I've got java moss and Parrot's feather in with my matamata now. He just sticks his head up right through it. He rarely extends more than is snout anyway. There is no problem with it. With a hatchling, I wouldn't have more than 4 inches of water in there anway.
:We have a baby Mata coming in tomorrow and we are wondering if anyone's ever heard of a hatchling getting tangled up in Java Moss and drowning. Also, we currently have river pebbles lining the bottom (average diameter is about an inch and a half)--should we remove these to prevent the little guy from trying to dig down and getting caught between the stones?
