DELUXE Java Moss (Taxiphyllum barbieri, formerly Vesicularia dubyana), Loose Portion
This is the famous Java Moss, which probably needs no introduction. It is easily 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.
