best moss for a moss tree?


Just looking for some experiences. I've done a bunch of reading and it seems like java works best. What's your thoughts?

You could pretty much use any moss depending on what look you want. I did this one with Peacock Moss some time ago.

I had a tree with Taiwan moss in my shrimp aquarium which looked beautiful.
I've tried new mosses like Fissidens and Creeping in addition to Taiwan for tree branches in my new aquarium hope I get good results.
