Default free moss, x-mas? UPDATE: all claimed

Hi all,

If anyone is interested in moss, I have some available right now. The moss is free, but after priority shipping, paypal fees, and gas money…the total comes out to be $5. If you would like some moss my paypal e-mail is [email protected]

I originally got it from Arizona Aquatics and they advertise it as Taiwan/Christmas moss, and swear it is so...but I have my doubts that it is just really nicely grown java moss...

Nevertheless, here are some pictures of the moss in my tank:

Take Care,

Ethan

Unfortunately, to my eyes, it looks like healthy grown java moss. Taiwan moss is considerably more "delicate" looking than other mosses. xmas moss has denser branching. Of course, it could be UNHEALTHY xmas moss (cause of the lack of dense branching).

I have to second that, it is almost definatly java moss but I have to give you props cause it does look very healthy. I added a pic of my x-mas moss if it helps to compare.[/img]

yep, that is what I believe too...now the people growing X-MAS moss on two forums have told me it is not x-mas moss

unfortunately the seller will not listen and continues to sell their misidentified moss and claims it was hand-carried from Singapore in a suitcase (which it might have been...) and says that their educated horticulturists know best, not the tons and tons of misinformation on the internet....and that I am wrong...

moss is still avaialable for those that want it...I have about 2 cups worth

We don't care where it came from or what species....we just care what it looks like....lol

I have both Xmas and Java, looks like java to me. My Xmas looks like the picture up above, little evergreen patterned style with the branching.
