Beautiful shrimp and moss. What kind of moss is that? Star moss (concrete moss)? Looks great!

You have a really nice tank. Mosses are one of my favorites.

What kind of moss is that in the 2nd px with the Crystal Black Shrimp? It does look like what I have heard called star moss. I thought star moss was NOT aquatic. This certainly does look like it's growing well.

I have been growing it for 6 months now, I think higher Alk. is the trick with it, still it grows very slowly. Maybe Reca has some advice...

Yes, it is Starmoss or Tortula ruralis.....


I hope explicate .......

Starmoss arrived from Malasia with little health :puke: but every day it recuperate :D

Very little time in aquarium, 30 days but to improve, grows very slowly but grow.....

I read that it isn´t an aquatic moss but I have friends that maintain it since one year.

The shrimps are happys walking and eating starmoss, it is very important for me :wink:

We´ll see evolution :D

I know these parameters.....
Ph --> 6,4 - 6,6
Temp --> 24 ºC
Light --> 24 w to 40 litres
Co2 and other fertilizes --> No.
Change of water --> 5 liter two times weekly.

Star moss no direct light, for the time being it grow slowly.

Regards.

I've tried Star Moss on several occasions but fail miserably. Looking at your beautiful photo of it, I'm tempted to give it another try.
