Favorite moss and why?
Just wondering what everyone's favorite moss is and why? Looking at starting some moss tanks and wanting to know what the favorite is here :)

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.

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.

I really like weeping moss, and mini xmas moss.

I love the look of fissidens/mini fissidens.

mini fissidens and mini x-mas moss

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.

Carpet feel - mini fissiden, mini pelia
Moss tree - weeping, spiky
Moss wall - Xmas, us fissiden
Also like flame, erect moss!

I like Java moss because its easy, also i like Riccia Fluitans even though i think those technically arent a moss

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!

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.

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