Mini Fissidens


When people are saying that they're wanting to buy mini fissidens, is there a specific species? How many species of "mini fissidens" are there?

Very curious.

Any input is appreciated.

geppi is larger, thicker, and broader than fontanus. There's a mini fissiden fontanus out there. So it might be that that people are referring to.

I have some mini fissidens, I dont have any regular fissidens to show as a comparison. I have some growing on some DSM seiryu. That is S. Repens on the top of the picture for size reference.



I have some growing underwater though, but Im at work so Ill have to take some pictures when I get home.

The "mini fissidens" I have is, I think, Fissidens nobilis. This may be the more common variety most people with "mini fissidens" have. I've also got Fissidens zippelianus which is even smaller.

So which sp of mini fissidens grows the fastest pace? I know they're all relatively slow.

I thought that fiss splach only grew in an emmersed form? Ive had multiple tries at it in a submersed form and never had any luck.

It needs to be emergent long enough for it to attach to the wood/rock. Then it can be submerged.

I have grown more then 40 mini fissidens squares 100% submerged, just wrap the square with fishing line to hold the mini fissidens, then leave it in the tank until it grows out.


BTW this is 6 squares combined.

Well, my woes are not with it holding....rather with it browning and ultimately shrivelling to non-existence.
