It is a rather new and rare one. Even though it looks like moss, Dr Benito Tan said that it is an unidentified fern gametophyte. It's soft and forms loose balls when it grows freely which look like green snowballs. It can be either tied to a steel rod, rock, root, weighed down with coarse mesh (or like I do, weighed down with a stainless steel rod spiral) or just let roam freely around the tank.

It's definitely one of my favorites, looks good in a planted tank, doesn't demand much and is also ideal with fish/shrimp fry because of it's loose form (a nice labyrinth for the babies). :)

Actually according the the victrinet WEB site it is an unidentified liverwort, but is this the real thing? I read in another post that a sponsor is selling Pellia as Süßwassertang

See the picture rain- was kind enough to loan to me?

My plants are daughters of that plant, so yes, it is the real thing.

Oh, and Robert, please don't start a flame war with "the other sponsor selling Pellia as Süßwassertang" in my little for sale thread.

No it doesn't.

It is the real deal, Robert. The plant was IDed for rain- by Dr. Tan himself.

ADDED: I have grown and sold "Pellia" as well.

I don't doubt you Mike! relax! I have been trying to gather more information about this plant., and no don't worry, I am not trying to start any flame whatever... just trying to stay current on whats going on out there.

Can you share any information on how you grow this? Do you think other people might be interested in hearing about it?

You guys are so competitive that you can never tell what is happening!! :hihi:

I do think folks would be interested in hearing more about the plant. How about starting a thread in the "Plant" section, Robert. I think that would be the best place to continue the discussion. That way everyone could get in on the chat! :icon_wink
