I wanted to make my intake tube for my fluval 4 look more natural so I decided I wanted to attatch some java moss to it. I do not believe that java moss will attatch itself to such a smooth surface so I picked up some aquarium-safe silicone and attatched gravel from my aquarium to the tube.

Here are some pictures to see what I am talking about.





I have not yet attatched java moss to the tube but here it is in my tank

Hmm, thats kinda a cool idea. How long will it take for the Java moss to overtake the tube? Be sure to post some update pictures if it does.

Make sure to have a sponge or something covering the intake. Java moss will slip through the standard filter intakes. I went through 4 impellers due to java moss.

Good idea, should look real nice once some moss gets growing on it.

You may also want to move it to a corner of your tank so it becomes even less noticeable.
