A $5 savings is not worth of trouble later on. So, be careful.

You have any sugestions on how to take care of it me personaly i think it was the water change that did it cuz when i did the last water change the water was colder than normaly what i put in my tank so i think it shocked it or something like that i really dont know.

And as for this statement here, you are just plain mistaken, my friend! I myself have had several experiences purchasing from the really nice people here on TPT, and any time it arrived subpar, the seller was super kind and considerate and re-sent the product free of charge!
Just chill out, tuck away the chip on your shoulder, and it'll all work for the best :]

It's not more expensive to do so than it is to illegally import plants.

Your best bet is to file an eBay/PayPal dispute with the company you bought from, get your money back and then use those funds to buy moss here on the forum. You'll not only get a larger quantity but it won't be dead when it arrives. An added bonus: It won't be an illegal importation.

Since you're new to the hobby, there's an obviously learning curve and you'll recover from the moss mistake quickly. We're attempting to guide you in the right direction so you get what you want, spend less money getting it and experience as little frustration as possible.
Yea I was just thanking u for the info as far as the money I'm not gonna sweat it I am however gonna spend my here just as soon as I get some more which will be Friday plus that will give me more time to start my new planted I got some organic garden soil by miricle grow I just have to either get black gravel or sand or I might just use the kitty litter I have on hand I just hoe it's the right one its oil absorbent 100% natural I have that an thrifty-sorb by the same co. I hope these producs are a good start

somewhatshocked Coffin...?

You can typically get a nice amount of moss for $10 or less including shipping. And it won't be dead when it arrives to you via a legal method.

newbieplanter I don't know I put some root tabs in the tanks around the rocks that have the moss on them in one tank the moss is all brown the other the moss is brown with one little circle of green in the middle the circle has to be about 3/4" diameter that's the only thing holding me from trashing it all.

acitydweller i have manated to revive brownish/drab green moss by putting it in its own container and dosing with NPK (8-7-6) formulation. it took about 3-4 days before signs of recovery was evident. after 2 months, the container was fully dark rich green. i think the water was changed maybe once... i usually dumped the water into a larger pot for watering and refilled with filtered water (tds 8ppm) from our pantry in the office. dont lose hope.

Yep, you always get good stuff from here in the swap n' shop. and Aquaticmagic also sends you the moss in a package or box that might say "plush toy" or "kids clothes" to avoid having to pay for it.
