For sale : Fissidens fontanus

I offered some Fissidens fontanus for sale last week and people kept asking me how many leaves they would get.

To avoid confusion I’m selling it as golf ball sized clumps just like other mosses are sold.

$20 - 1 golf ball sized clump of Fissidens fontanus
$5 - Shipping
$25 - Total

Here are a couple of links showing what this moss looks like in the tank.

Below are some pictures of the actual moss for sale.

Bill, I got mine on Thurs. Looks great. It was in my mailbox and it was about 15 degrees F outside, but I think I got to it within an hour of delivery. I blew warm air on it and ran the plastic bag under some warm water. I think it must have been very close to freezing, but it looks like it survived!

Hi Betowess,

If it doesn't make it let me know and I'll replace it. I can send it in an insulated box if needed.

>>>If your moss kind of weeps in the tank then it is fontanus, from your pictures it looks like you have fontanus and not the moss pictured in the first too links.<<<

Thanks for the iformation Ianiwane.

I tried the removed the first 2 links to avoid any confusing but it didn't let me, maybe the post is to old.

Thanks Bill, I appreciate that. Hopefully it survived. I just tied it high on my Manzanita. It is darker green than in the pictures, but I think I see new growth tips. BTW. it definately weeps. I have some Subwassertang coming from Mike next week. Maybe I can pinch you off a piece for your trouble, if you have to send another. Thanks again. bob
