Dugsul808 Xmas moss because of the effect it has. Looks like a Christmas tree branch. Secondly is java moss due it's quick growth

Tcal01 i like fissidens for driftwood and rock because it just has a very clean and neat look as opposed to other mosses that can look a little mess. but i do like either java or xmas moss in moss walls because they grow fast and give a very natural look.

Trail_Mix I really love the different fissidens. Mini-xmas moss is beautiful as well, and of course flame moss is a favorite for sculpting. I really love liverworts though, especially mini pellia and subwassertang!

AVN Fissiden fontanus is by far my favorite moss, the growth is unique; too bad it grows so slowly. Second choice would have to be Flame moss.

DoubleT mini fissidens and mini x-mas moss

BenderBendingRodriguez I really like weeping moss, and mini xmas moss.

acitydweller i would say regular java as it tends to be the most sculptable. The others offer a fixed growth pattern where java tends to be more versatile in this regard.

herns Peacock. Taiwan and Christmas moss. Its hard for me to single out one. They have their own fronds structure. Taiwan is more thinner while peacock is more thicker, broader leaf/ fronds character. Christmas moss is also greta for moss wall.
