I found some mosses and liverworts growing around one of my grandma's big ponds on the weekend and I'm trying to submerse them slowly in some containers. I will be happy with the experiment as long as they don't die. The area that they were growing in was really soggy and wet so I'm hoping I won't kill them.

I love my grandma's ponds, it's a lot of fun wading around in them looking for stuff. The one I collected the moss from is a man made irrigation pond from about 50 years ago that has totally naturalized since, I've found a lot of nice weeds in them.

IMHO is not true. Java grow very good with CO2 in medium and high light but in high light there could be some problems with algae . Most importand is keep moss clean and trim from time to time.

Java moss 0.37W/l, 30-40ppm CO2, ferts



X-mass moss 0.4W/l, no CO2, almost no ferts




Erect moss 0.67W/l, 20ppm CO2, ferts



Taiwan moss 0.75W/l, 25ppm CO2, ferts



Willow moss 0.37W/l, no CO2, no ferts

Hey Norbert,

Thanks for sharing these pictures... They are valuable for us to judge how the water parameters and light affects the growth of various moss.

Your Java moss indeed look very well-grown. I guess my initial assumption is incorrect that Java will do badly in CO2 rich tank.

Recently, I have been dumping a lot of emersed plants inside my tank... I think some rotted and killed half of my Malayan shrimps... Haha.. So sorry for them... I didn't know that they are so sensitive to ammonia. My cardinals are happily swimming and the shrimps chose heaven.
