I'm planning on picking up some different types of Moss for a couple of new tanks (yes i'm truely becoming mr MTS).
Currently i have Java Moss in my big tank which i quite like and am getting the hang of managing and cleaning.
My online plant retailer has stock of Christmas Moss (Vesicularia montagnel), Weeping Moss (Vesicularia ferriei) and Willow Moss (Frontinalis antipyretica).
According to an aquamoss.net article -
Vesicularia sp' - involves Weeping, Christmas, Singapore and more.
Most of these species need cooler waters. It makes a lot of sense as they originate in cooler regions like Canada. An odd exception would be Singapore Moss, but even then this moss are found in shaded areas.
Always keep the water clean and new, and keep the water flowing.
I'm going to be placing these moss in shrimp tank with little filtration (or none if i can get away with it). So from the article i read it looks like my fav of the varieties available, the Willow Moss, won't be the best choice.
I've also noticed Fissidens for the first time on these forums in the last few weeks, and found a supplier on e-bay. But know little about it.
What are people's experience of these moss varieties?
What do they look like once grown in on wood and root structures?
What are the growing tips for Fissidens and best varieties for smaller tanks?
Oh and pictures are always appreciated with many
Thanks in advance,
