Need pics of Fissidens - will provide credit

I am writing a brief article on Fissidens fontanus for our local aquarium society. I have a decent enough pic from aquamoss but I am looking for other pics of it alone and in a landscape. I will provide credit for the pic. Could someone please post some pics here.

I am familar with google search.

I am looking for someone that may have a nice pic of their tank which is using the fissidens as a central theme.

OIC, well a tank with nothing but Fissiden could be a pretty boring mess.
I mean, even if someone had such a tank, if they posted a full tank shot,
all the detail of the fine Fissiden leaves would be lost in the shot anyway,
so what would be the point?
you are probably better off just using photoshop.
well, I hope you find what you want,
sorry I can't be more helpful.
here's my Fiss'on'a'Rope

Yes that is good! I have the shot from aquamoss showing the leaves but I would like to illustrate how one can use it in a scape. Do you have a shot of your tank that I could use? I have some in my tank but it is not prominent enough to stand out.

jrs, maybe you can describe what you have in mind a little better.
you see, my Fiss'Rope can be moved anywhere in my tank, or
displayed completely alone or even horizontally. my tank is not
really a good display example, as it's just a collection of plant
samples and moss ropes. I could for instance place Fiss'Rope
surrounded by other interesting stem plants for contrast, but
that would still only show maybe a quarter of my overall tank.
look at the 29gal link in my signature to put this into context.

Here is one that I found but WOW did it take a lot of digging around. I don't think that it is fontanus though (maybe nobilis???). BTW I like that idea of the moss rope.

jrs, I doubt your pic is Fissiden, as it grows in branchy clumps, not parallel.

I found these pics from a guy in Singapore who sells Fissiden on Bogwood.







let me know if pics don't display as they are from a login required forum.
