This Deluxe Java Moss is among the highest quality available anywhere!


This is the famous Java Moss (Taxiphyllum barbieri/Vesicularia dubyana) which probably needs no introduction. It is certainly the most popular and easy-to-grow live moss in the aquarium hobby.  This DELUXE Java Moss is grown completely submerged and is in INCREDIBLE condition with completely deep green color and very long shoots.  It is by far the highest-quality Java Moss we have ever sold and the best you fill find anywhere!

Java Moss is a vibrant green moss that is particularly excellent for aquariums that house fish, snails, and dwarf shrimp, as it provides biofilm, hiding places, and security for all aquarium inhabitants.  If you breed shrimp or fish, the fry will find vital refuge in the plant cover.  Java Moss is very low-maintenance; it can be kept in any freshwater aquarium and does not need special supplementation or high-intensity lighting.

This Java Moss ships as a loose portion.  It can also be grown along the rear glass of your aquarium for an impressive live plant backdrop effect!  Java Moss also removes pollutants from the water by reducing nitrates and providing some dissolved oxygen, which will greatly benefit any animals in the aquarium.

No aquarium plant distributor/nursery/wholesaler/retailer can or will guarantee their freshwater plants to be 100% snail free. We can not guarantee our aquatic plants will be snail free.

    Shipping Schedule for this service

    Current Handling Time:

    1-9 business days

    Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

    Shipping Rate

    Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
