For ten dollars i got this....

An extra size "soft ball" of Java Moss

Came with what I think is duckweed
Is it???

Was thinking of dumping it in

But just wanna make sure if this is what I think it is


my LFS owner was nice to let me know at the end "hey there is something extra in there"

not knowing duckweed was in the menu

all i asked was for 10 dollars worth of java moss and i got
this

sorry but was anticipated for a large amount of java this weekend
but ran short on hope so i went to the locals to get me some

wha yall think hefty size good amount or is my lfs owner to nice

Looks like duckweed to me. That's not a bad price.

Sorry, but ouch. Get rid of the duckweed while you can. It's more invasive than kudzu. If you had a good customer experience, than it was a good deal. I personally wouldn't consider that nearly $10 worth of java moss though.

trust me,you dont need more.my mom got a tiny piece of this stuff a while ago(with the common pleco petsmart sold us)and has it in her 60.after 5-6 months,it grew from the size of a quarter to covering most of the bottom.shes still got about half the bottom covered,despite her efforts to keep it controlled.i put some in my 10 gallon frog tank,and it grew from just over the size of my fist,to covering half of it.in 2-3 months.how high is your lighting?

I want some! I have never seen any java moss for sale in any of my lfs! I guess I'll have to ask the next time I go. I know my petco doesn't sell it, which is where I usually get my fish supplies.

Anyone know if goldies eat java moss? Probably huh? I've always wanted something to put in there that they won't eat. Can't afford to keep buying nice plants only to have it get eaten. I know that live plants are good for them but they are going to have to get by with zucchini, romaine and peas!
