It gets everywhere and multiplies like crazy. Filters that cause a lot of surface agitation will push it all over your tank and sometimes kill it off.

Ah yes, didn't think about emersed growth. It does appear to be an emersed wendtii. In which case it should put out different growth while growing submerged and look more like what you are probably...

Thanks I was kinda thinking that too, I was really trying to find a way to incorporate it but I think the moss will get used in a different tank. I like the java fern suggestion.
