Q) “ADA view” video introduced the attaching of willow moss that has been
finely chopped with a knife to the stone. Will the willow moss really attach to
the stone by this method?

ADA view: A 180cm aquarium tank with Unzan stone and Wabi-kusa

A) The layout introduced in the “ADA view” uses Unzan Stone which has been
newly released recently. This volcanic stone has a rough surface and holds
fine pieces of willow moss easily. Although not all the willow moss pieces will
be attached to stone by the method introduced in our magazine, some of them will
naturally stay on the stone and start growing. Please take note that this way of
attaching willow moss cannot be used for stones with a smooth surface. This is
a method of attaching willow moss making use of the features of Unzan Stone.
