Types of Nice Moss?

Postby Serial324556 » Sat May 03, 2008 1:38 am

Hey I am planning on getting some moss for my 29gallon tank. I was wondering what kind you guys/gals recommend that looks nice but isn't too expensive. I have 2 nice peices of driftwood I would like to put it on and put randomly around my tank. I have 2 17watt flourescent bulbs which I know is def. enough for moss.

I was also wondering if there were any recommended sites that sells moss thats not too expensive. Both lfs's near me do not sell moss.

Java moss is the only one I'm familiar with and I like it very much. It grows differently with height amounts of light, a bit like a fern, and will attach well to wood if tied down for a while.

It can get long and rangy if the fish don't keep it pruned and it easily gets gunk caught in it, so unless your fish do it for you it's good to keep it pruned shortish by tearing away the long stuff.

It also grows well as a free floating clump.
