Fissidens sp Singapore


anyone have experiences with this moss? they say it won't attach by itself no matter how long you tie them on wood. any tips?

I've got some of that. And no, it won't attach itself. So you have to keep it tied with a string, a length of fish line, a hair net or whatever you think suits your needs. Think of Riccia on the stones, for example. It seems to grow taller and maybe faster than Fissidens fontinalis in my tank.

allright thanks a lot, i'm gonna use a thin green/black fishing line. do you have photos of this moss on your tank setup? if they grow vertically, then i'm gonna tie them to the horizontal part of the wood. i wonder how they look if i tie them to the vertical part of wood.

Sorry, don't have pix of it in my tank, but there are some pix at aquamoss.
He seems to have tied it also to a vertical surface (stick) and it looks good to me. In my tank, it has grown longer than in those pix. Cutting/ pruning might be ok with it...

thanks for the link, i've seen it before but somehow i missed the vertical tying picture. this moss really looks like flame moss isn't it? does yours grow densely like that? what's the different with the plain java moss, in growth, requirement, etc. sorry for asking too much, but i have no experience with this plan.

Well, it doesn't look like flame moss to me. The different Fissidens species are all looking like little feathers, IMO. In the beginning, my one did grow densely like in the pic, but lately (probably due to inattention) it has been growing more string-like. Well, Java moss seems to be probably the easiest moss to grow - it grows practically in any conditions. I think this moss needs a bit more: medium-high light, proper nutrients.
