Does anyone has java moss?

Hello,I am new to the hobby.I am currently planning to make a shrimp tank. I 'd already gotten a few Java fern from Petsmart but can't find java moss. Anyone has some extra, please help! Please someone in Portland area or be able to deliver. Thank you.
I have 2 air pumps I can trade + a PSVita usb cable or a small fee.

I will have some weeping moss in a few months. Wet Spot usually has some moss. They sell them on moss tiles for a high price. Its cheaper to buy on SNS here.

Hi. I don't have a big budget for high price moss, so I will be patient to wait for some low priced. Will you able to deliver to Portland area? I am underaged, not able to drive. Let me know. Thank you.

Take a look on ebay, as that's where I ended up getting mine from. After giving up on the LFS's for certain plants, I searched ebay and found some good deals. I got a large amount (softball size) of java moss, shipping included, for about $8. I also ended up ordering a few other plants as well, since I was on there anyway

Just research the reviews, look around, and use paypal or such...

Thank you for your help. I can't do online shopping since I don't have a bank account or paypal... I was checking local craigslist for last few weeks, but no hope also. Never thought finding Java moss is this difficult. Always hear that it grows like weed that somebody may need to toss away plenty everyweek...

Please pm the price you are asking. BTW, is Taiwan moss as easy as Java moss? This is my first tank, I wouldn't try any advanced plant other than the easy like Java fern, java moss...



Update: I just receive the java moss from tivu100. With this I can attach to my driftwood. Still need about 2 goftball of moss to make the carpet. Thank you , tivu100!

You can always go to your local CVS or RiteAid and buy a paypal card. Thats what I used when I was underage. They charge a couple bucks fpr service fees but it works and it gets the job done.
