Fissidens Fontanus is the most common fissidens type, but it is still fairly rare. It is the easiest and fastest growing of the fissidens types and is suitable for both beginners and experienced hobbyists. Fontanus appears delicate and soft like flowing feathers. It is soft to the touch but is a fairly resilient moss. If it is grown higher up in the tank with good flow to keep it clean, it can be a beautiful centerpiece to your aquascape.
Fissidens Fontanus moss does not require any special care other than basic, clean water and low-to-moderate lighting. Our Fissidens Fontanus moss is grown submerged in low-tech shrimp tanks. Only super-healthy, bright green cuttings will be harvested and shipped directly to customers.
Typical portions will be a medium clump (roughly a golf ball when underwater), which will be more than enough to start propagating your own beautiful piece. We do not sell large clumps or pre-made containers of moss because these typically do not adapt as well to new tank parameters.
How to grow: We recommend you tie or glue your new moss it to whatever surface you would like to attach it to. Each new end will continue to grow and eventually produce a lush, full, beautiful plant.
Disclaimer: All plants or moss may contain baby shrimp or snails.
