SunDragon-

Sorry, I missed your post when I first looked. It's Fissidens Fontanus. I had trouble finding it originally but now it's growing great in both tanks (especially the 6g Eclipse).

Thanks! I'm having a bit of trouble with my Christmas Moss. It started out a beautiful green when I got it and now has brown spots.

I contacted the guy I got them from and he said it needs a few weeks to adjust.

If not, I'll rip it out and try some Fissidens Fontanus. Yours looks amazing!

That'll happen. My simple-wisdom is...it's almost impossible to ruin moss, and just when you think it's dead...IT GROWS BACK!!

I tore most of my Fissidens out of my 57gal tank and threw it away because it had so much algae in it. Apparently there were little bits of it that had taken to the wood in the tank and is now growing back in a cool "carpet" affect on the manzanita.

Cool, do you think I should cut it back and let it grow out?

I'd let it acclimate. Let it green and once it looks healthy, trim and glue trimmings where you want or...package it up, ship it this way and I'll cross-ship you some fissid
ens.

Deal! I'll wait till it starts to get green and send you a golfball sized patch

This hobby does teach patience.

Where did you get your rams and Apistos?

I work near a great LFS, located in Milpitas Ca, called Neptune Aquatics.

I loved GBR's but the Apistos seemed much heartier. I'll get some pics soon.
