Willow Moss (Weeping Moss) Fontinalis antipyretica

Weeping Moss

Weeping Moss
Willow Moss is a very hardy and undemanding live plant - great for beginners and experts alike! It is an alternative to Java Moss that is quickly growing in popularity. It looks almost identical to Java Moss, but the branches and strands are significantly larger and more defined.
 
I definitely foresee this moss becoming one of the most popular plants in the hobby in coming months. The moss is grown outdoors in Florida, and may contain a few terrestrial bugs that will not survive or reproduce underwater. Occasionally there are small brown spots in the moss, but you will receive enough green moss to make a 5x5" or larger mat.
 
This is a great plant to keep in any freshwater aquarium due to its low lighting requirements. It is a moss that is capable of living in cold water tanks as well as tropical tanks. It grows into bushy patches that are always a favorite hiding place for the shrimp fry that I breed, as well as guppy fry.
