This is the famous Java Moss, which probably needs no introduction. It is easily the most popular and easy-to-grow live moss in the aquarium hobby. Java Moss is a vibrant green moss that is particularly excellent for aquariums that house fish, snails, and dwarf shrimp, as it provides biofilm, hiding places, and security for all aquarium inhabitants. If you breed shrimp or fish, the fry also greatly appreciate the plant cover. Java Moss is extremely low-maintenance; it can be kept in any freshwater aquarium and does not need special or high-intensity lighting.

Java Moss grows easily along driftwood, rocks, and other surfaces. It can also be grown along the rear glass of your aquarium for an impressive live plant backdrop effect! This moss is also quite practical for the aquarium owner because it removes pollutants from the water, greatly reducing the need for water changes and preventing “smelly tank syndrome”.
