Identify this Moss?

Bought this moss hoping to grow enough to attach some on rocks in the aquarium and wood on my other tank.

So does any know what moss it is so I don't kill it?

I don't know for sure, but looks like riccia or maybe even UG? Take some closeups.

I think it might be riccia.
This is the best close up i could get, my shrimp are getting upset for turning the lights on and off.

Can't tell by your photo, need something in the photo to compare it to like an adult shrimp.

But to me looks like regular Riccia.

+2 on Riccia. At first when I got this, I thought the seller put those plastic things that you put in Easter eggs into the bag. XD

It so sucks that I can't just go to the store and find what I want or order them online. I am asking a store to see how much it would cost if I ordered a bunch of HC and glossostigma when they order their next batch of plants. It probably going to be expensive but I am hoping in the affordable expensive.
