All of the mosses sold here I have observed using a light microscope to see their cellular structure. This allows me to verify the mosses are their species by comparing to the various papers and other scientific sources.

The mosses are grown under medium+ light with CO2 and glutaraldehyde. All moss is duckweed and algae free, China + Quell willow moss are snail free. These mosses are not imported, but are taken from my own tanks.

If your temperatures are below 40F a heat pack will be required for shipping.

China Moss Vesicularia sp. Sinensis

  • Dark green long strands with thick, compact branches and short height make China moss a great foreground plant for shrimp tanks or walls
  • Low growing creeping habit when grown attached to a surface (horizontal or vertical). Use as a ground cover, attach to rocks or driftwood, or use on a moss wall
  • Readily attaches to surfaces with rhizoids
  • Requires medium to high light for optimal compact growth
  • Will pearl
  • Snail free, Rare
  • Portion/Price: Golf ball = $20

Christmas Moss Vesicularia montagnei 'Christmas moss'

  • Characteristic triangular branching habit with dark green fronds
  • Compact habit in medium+ light makes it ideal for moss walls and attaching to driftwood. Lower light results in a looser frond structure with less characteristic triangular shape
  • Portion/price: golf ball = $10

Apistogramma cacatuoides ‘triple red’

I have 3 remaining males and several females that are still up for sale. They are $10/each. M+F for $20. M+2F=$25. Please see my previous post for details on tank conditions, shipping and DOA policy (no links allowed, or I would put it here for you). Current pictures of all 3 males available via PM (too much content for 1 post).

Also have black bar endler guppies, no pics (yet) as they are too quick for my camera. The males are shiny and fluorescent as they get to eat the leftover brine shrimp from the apisto’s.
