My moss tank.

The mosses got from the river side. Managed to get them stay on the gravel, rock and mongrove wood. The tank side is around 0.5 height. 1ft long n deep. Sharing a 18W FL light tube with another 8inch nano tank. A 6" DC fan running 24 hours. Photoperiod is from 8pm-8am. DIY CO2 which connecting to internal filter. Managed to get 25C. And finally saw the mosses bubbling.

That looks sweet. Any idea of what type of moss it is.

How long have you been keeping the mosses submerged?

I am trying to find out through www.killies.com owner - Mr. KL Loh. He is suspecting it is Singapore moss. Anyway, I am sending him some sample to him to verify.

Actually I just got the moss last weekend. I did saw some mosses in submersed and emersed. I didn't take back any emersed moss. Due to many dirts sticking on it. The moss I am having is emersed. Hopefully they can grow submersed.

your mosses appear to be Thallose Liverwort (Pellia endiviifolia). I've got some in two of my tanks- got a few little pieces from my local aquarium plant geek, and I love it.

Nope. That is not the pelia. That is the Singapore Moss - Vesicularia dubyana. Was verified by the Prof. Tan. Please refer to

I'm not so sure using common names like singapore moss is wise, since I've heard "java moss" referred to as Vesicularia dubyana.

Then again, over at APC they refer to java moss as Taxiphyllum barbieri . . . .

BTW, that link to killies.com is dead for me!

Oh, really cool looking moss tank, too

Wonderful setup, Dom. Nicely done. I'd like to try a moss tank myself one day.

It looks really nice in it's more compact emersed version. It's a shame you can't keep it that way underwater!

For anyone interested, here's a post at that killies.com forum link you provided which shows Singapore Moss emersed and immersed. It's less compact immersed.

esarkipato--

Dom is correct, the common name "singapore moss" refers to this moss, Vesicularia dubyana.

Java moss was incorrectly labled with the name in many older aquarium magazines and books-- including Amanos (well, he also called mosses Fontinalis that were not). Java moss has been re-labled (correctly) as Taxiphyllum barbieri (as it is most definitely not a Vesicularia).

In fact, the corrections were made by a Singaporean Bryologist Dr. Tan who is in frequent contact with the forum www.killies.com
