rare mosses or HC

does anyone know of any LFS that carry HC or any of the unconventional mosses? looking for weeping, erect , willow, or maybe even fissidens.

Ive searched and searched and have found none so far. I might have to start supplying some of the stores with moss myself.

What part of NJ are you in.

The truth is I havn't really looked for either of those in my area (yet, soon setting up low-tech nano with moss).

OK, I work in J.C., but live up in Passiac (almost liquid rock).

You might want to check out the NY board. There are a couple of places in manhattan that get good write ups.

If you find one, let me know.
Good Luck

Absolutely Fish in Clifton had some moss last time I was there. I would think that your best option would be to order online from aquabid or this site.

JC tap water

JC tap is Boonton Res. water - Rockaway River water treated and piped down. Should be somewhat softer then much of the North NJ's well drawn.

I'm in RI so if you're worried about shipping mosses in the weather now I wouldn't...

I've got "rare" mosses, If you're interested drop me a pm.

Good luck finding them at good fish stores, its really a hit or miss I've found.

LMAO!

I just noticed that it was the "recent" post in the local pet stores etc section so I clicked on it, especially since it was about moss.

Had just woken up and didn't think to check the dates

It's understandable since there was a previous poster who brought up this thread.

Not as long as there is a remaining forum member devoted to the pursuit of moss and mosskind
