After seeing the results in Euro Tanks using Peat Bricks, ive decided this is the way to go. I want a 'telly tubby' esqe 'rolling hills' landscape.

The bottom of the vivarium will probably have about 2 inches of water in the bottom. Should i place the Peat Bricks directly into the water, or create a flase bottom to bring the pete bricks above the waterline. I want the bricks to eventually cover in moss, so i wnt the best way of achiving this. Does the moss like the ground constantly wet, wicking water from the bottom. Or should i raise them out of the water, allowin it only to be watered from misting?

Ive seen a few tanks where the pete bricks are placed directly in the water. Anyone have any expirience of this?

In all my tanks I have placed the peat bricks in the water, and the moses are all over it. My water hight is between 4 and 6 inches. The tanks are Vivaria style.

Checked out your web site, very nice, and thanks for the info. Whats that gadget youve built with the funnel, is that a fruit fly duster?

It is the Bug Bazooka and is the invention of Brent Brock (also on this forum) for transferring meadow plankton from sweep net to vivarium.

So is all 'meadow plankton' good or are there some evil wevils we have to take out and avoid when collecting bugs.
