I have this plant attached to driftwood and it is a deep green with the tips or new growth being a bright green, it is a slow grower that responds to light, CO2, and fertilizer in the water column but will grow just as well with almost no requirements. It also does better in cooler water and can start to have problems above 80 degrees. In my experience it does not float so if you trim or a piece comes off you may find it growing in the other end of your aquarium, regardless it adds a nice look to any aquarium.

Isn't Spiky Moss different than Peacock Moss?

I've had lots of success growing it in my shrimp tank with no heater. It loves lower temps and liquid carbon.
