Love hate relationship with this... Once you've put it in your tank, you'll have it forever... It likes to break off and start a new moss "colony" elsewhere in the tank... Usually choking out other plants or clogging filter intakes if not kept cleaned up...

Amblystegium serpens

That looks like Moss Tumbleweed, sounds like its behavior as well! I do not think I have seen this one before!

If you're into egg dropping fish breeding like rainbows / tetras / CPD's etc. than this "moss" is your best friend.

Or value shrimplets hiding from hungry mouths.

Each individual "strand" acts like a stem plant on it's own, it's only when there is a clump of hundreds of "strands" together will it act moss like.

Got a couple shots of the "Moss Jar"
Started as a planted old style baby turtle bowl which broke and was plopped into the big jar.

So on the bottom is DHG, and maybe Riccia and Subwassertang. It has Utricularia / Bladderwort (the pest kind no one wants - forgot the name atm) and I just left all the plants in there as to not spread it around the tanks. It doesn't seem to cause a bit of problem living with the moss, etc. But I can see how it would cause a gnarly mess in a pretty planted tank.

I love my moss jar!
3G Anchor Hocking Heritage Hills

The Bladderwort can be seen a little, looks like light green threads in between the moss.



Closer up of the moss growing up the edge - and anyone else think the end of the piece of wood sticking out looks like the head of a duck?


You can see a thread of the Bladderwort near the rim of the jar


This was a month after planting the turtle bowl 2.5 years ago.


4 months after planting end of summer growing for 4 months sitting under a deck patio getting nice warm dappled light and then some sunshine for a little while at the end of the day. Then moved inside for winter.
