Go buy a bag of onions or Oranges or something in a net.
I got pieces of plastic green net thst came in with my shrimp shipment. Using it so baby swordtails can hide from parent.

You guys are such a resourceful bunch! I ended up using a plastic loofah I got from the dollar store.

If you like the moss netting like the ones in the 1st pic, Kerry once told me you can get those from Fabricana.

I have a sheet of black coarse filter sponge, but it's not a block size... How big do you need? I can cut a size for you.
Annnnnd I have a slate that looks like the one in your pic, but it's a long one... So I guess I'll have to find a way to break it for you, lol~
(Am I able to break it with a hammer?)

I'll be working in N. Delta this Saturday, please feel free to PM me to discuss :)

I use the plastic scouring pad made of netting snip the zap strap holding it together and unroll it.

You will have a long net sock.

or I use panti hose from the $1 store to make media socks or contain various thing like peat moss or oyster shell.

Hi Shiyuu,

I managed to find most of the things I was looking for, but I appreciate your reply. I'll let you know if I end up needing any of your items.
