McMerwe’s comment: This is the most common fastest growing and easiest moss available. Most breeders use it as spawning moss for livestock or as a hiding place for shrimp. Because it grows very fast it is not recommended for high tech setups as it will require a lot of maintenance to look great. Its a very good beginner moss. (Review:4/5)
*Please note – The moss you receive will look slightly different from that in the picture as we use different methods to grow it. Over time it will become close to the picture in your tank, depending on your light, ferts and co2 levels.
