How about this, should I give it a try? Is there anything I have to worry about. I have the perfect place for it in my tank.

I just won some of it on eBay. There is a little bit of info on it on http://www.killies.com/. Taken from a thread:

“Hi Steven,
the reason why you didn't found any info in the web is a typing error.
AquaticMagic describes the name with "Plagionium", the correct name is "Plagiomnium". If the genus is fixed, I expect it is P. affine (English name: Many-fruited Thyme-moss).
This moss (it is not a liverwort) grows normally emersed, but this does not mean that it doesn't grows submerged, too. It is very widespread in Eurasia and I didn't found any entry in a red list.
If you like to examine some pictures, try this:
http://www.pflanzenliebe.de/innen/in...aubmoose2.html (scroll down to the begin of the 4th quarter of the page - this site is in German)
http://www.bioimages.org.uk/HTML/R146566.HTM (a British site)
And if you need some microscopical views:
http://forum.mikroscopia.com/index.php?showtopic=3226 (this site is in French, but nice details).
Regards Uwe”

I've had some of this from the the same seller, Its been growing in a small container till i can put it in my new tank. I've had it for about 3 weeks, and there is a little new growth, i have it growing half emersed and half submerged. There a certainly greater growth from the emersed growth.

The leaves of the plant itself were quite a dark dull green when it arrived compaired to the photos on the add. The new submerged growth is a much brighter vivid green and the leaves are a lot smaller about 1-2mm max in diameter. The emersed growth is again a bright green although the leaves are even smaller.

I know of someone who has had the plant longer than me a thinks it will only be good grown emersed, but its early days so far to tell if its a good aquatic plant as it grows so slowly, but it looks super and if it is possible to grow well submerged it's well worth trying.

Thanks for the info, Steven. I guess time will tell. Is your friend using CO2?
