Fissidens fontanus in Columbus or Cinci?
 
I'll be passing through Cinci tomorrow evening after work. Does anyone have an Fissidens fontanus or know of a store that might stock it?

Thanks,
Zach

How much are you looking for? You know I started mine with a purchase off aquabid. It was maybe 20-25 leaflets in a tiny bag. tied it to a piece of wood and it slowly took.

Just looking for a start is all. Probably get some from someone off this board, just thought I would avoid shipping.

If any one wants a "starter" amount. I would be happy to send some in a small baggy in an envelope to my Ohio peeps. Best way to get it going is to tie individual "leaflets" to a piece of wood. You can also use netting to wrap leaflets to a small object. The nice thing about fissidens is that it is a native moss. It is also slow growing so doesn't require a lot of maintenance but will be overtaken if you have algae problems.

PM me your address if interested. Be aware I do have snails in my tank.
