Red moss is not only unique because of its vibrant red color, but also because it isn’t a moss at all. In fact, it is classified as an algae. It grows into a bulbous shape and will spread rapidly. Due to the fact that this is an algae, be mindful of using algaecides in an aquarium containing it.
Red moss does not require any special care other than basic, clean water and low-to-moderate lighting. Our Red moss is grown submerged in low-tech shrimp tanks. Only super-healthy cuttings will be harvested and shipped directly to customers.
Typical portions will be a small clump (roughly a half golf ball), 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 your new Red Moss onto a surface for it to attach to. It should quickly attach and start to spread.
Disclaimer: All plants or moss may contain baby shrimp or snails.
