I noticed that there is a very old thread from 2014 which raised this issue and the concensus seemed to be that it made no difference and/or wasn't worth the effort as the 400ppm of atmospheric co2 is more than adequate for emersed growth. That thread quickly devolved into a debate about global...
This moss has hitchhiked it’s way into my tank on the back of a rarish eBay fern purchase. It’s been growing steadily and slowish, but not out of the tank - it easily could though, if it wanted to. Would someone be able to help me identify it? It’s the top one, further down is some Fissidens...
Can anyone enlighten me about aquatic mosses? They don't seem to get mentioned very often on UKAPS. And, to my surprise, they don't (appear to) get a mention in Diana Walstad's Ecology of the Planted Aquarium. I'm just trying to get the basics such as:
(1) How do they differ...
hello everyone im working in a startup that is focusing right now in "moss frames" but we dont have as much knowledge at the moment so im trying to ask you guys for the people who are experienced with moss or are doing moss works proffesionally.. what is the best adhesives to use when making...
New Pico coming soon
Tank has been ordered tonight and should be here by next weekend.
This one is going to be an Odd one indeed, don't think anyone on here has used this tank before for a nano/pico.
The shape of this will make it challenging to scape and plant, but that is what appeals to me...
I'm attempting to dry start fissidens fontanus and riccardia chamedryfolia driftwood. This setup has been going for about two weeks and I wanted to share the progress! I chose to do this because they were small amounts of leftover mosses, and the aquarium wouldn't be ready to set up for some...
Probably some people already know this method.. For the people that don't know it already here is a step by step guide. I really like this method for a natural effect and it saves some money. Enjoy guys! :D
How do you attach your moss and why?
Example of my forest with this method.

Simple christmas moss wall 210mm x 100mm using 2 sheets of different aperture stainless steel mesh (316 preferred but 304 is fine), I used suction cups cut through the mesh so I can remove to flip 180deg as no doubt the top will grow quicker as it's closer to the light and also clean/rinse
I've been alluding to this a few times. Originally this was temporary holding for ???, set up very quickly and thrown on a small stand in our bathroom; back in august last year...
Finally got a few days of to muck about with fish stuff, and had planned to move this, and make a permanent home...
Right so I started a new scape a few weeks ago and at the start it was good. The monte carlo carpet was growing fast and the moss was transitionin well.
Then after 1 1/2 weeks I decided to dose my ei ferts (I hadn't used it in several months). A few weeks later I get this brown algae plague. I...
So I started with a nano tank and sold it pretty quick to go "bigger". I was thinking about a second high tech setup and wanted to buy an ada 60p. But I decided to go smaller and go for the ada 45p as I already have an eheim 2211 with 2 sets of lily pipes which I can use for this setup. It will...
Hello Aquascapers, I have come back from a long retirement from this hobby and decided to rescape my dull tank.
My current idea for the scape:
-use a mix of weeping moss and spiky moss on the lava rocks
- use flame moss for the rear of the tank
- have a mix of monte carlo and DHG in the front...
I purchased a Botanica boutique "Sanctuary M Rainforest" Mossarium Dome, here is a photo with two small chunks of seiryu stone, not sure if I should try only mosses or also some small plants to grow emersed also. Should be a fun little project.

Hi guys & gals,
I'm looking at going for a general South American (SA) theme and wanted some moss. Having checked out some other forums, and seeing everyone lamenting the paucity of SA species available, I thought I'd share my research thus far.
CAVEAT: I do not know how many of the bryophyte...
Had a read of http://www.ukaps.org/forum/threads/riccia-and-java-moss-carpets-step-by-step-guide.297/ and has me tempted...
I am planning a 30cm cube cherry shrimp tank and like the thought of having some are of moss carpeting the substrate but every picture I can find of a moss carpet is...
I've just started a new aquascape using the dry start method. I blended moss with water and natural yoghurt and painted it onto my wood. I'm misting the moss with water with fertiliser in and covering the tank with cling film.
I'm having to remove the cling film and mist the tank 3, 4 even 5...
Hey Good evening people,
I am looking for kind people to help me out with free (plants/moss/cherry shrimp) any specimens would be great, i am not looking for a lot just a a little bit to get me going. I had a tank but i was out for the week and got back and the tank empty out onto my floor and...
Tank: Ciano Tartarium 40 = 40*25.6*16.9cm
Filter: APS 300 HOB With Prefilter Sponge.
Heating: Interpet 15w Slim Card Heater
Lighting: Waterhome 9W and JBD 9W LED
Substrate: Wet for something contrasting - so a Orange/Red Sand
Hardscape: Seiryu Stone covered in Various Moss and Stems.
My moss is not growing well, despite what appeared to be a great start.
Growth seems to have stopped, with tips turning brown.
Tank is 15l flexi mini - so high light (very high, as the moss is about 1 inch below surface), 5 hour light period. Co2 is fine, 10 hrs a day. Dosing EI. Water is very...
Having mulled over quite a few threads I've decided that for a first planted tank attempt I'm going to try my hand at the low tech approach before commiting to anything more.
As the title suggests the tank will be a biosphere with a capacity of about 30l, (i.e a spare goldfish bowl...
I am using a pump to dose micro/macro solution on alternative days. My tank is 4ft long, dosing tubes are at one end of tank.
Just below surface I have some christmass moss tied on driftwood. On dosing time, this moss receives a blast of ferts. Now it seems that the moss is...
I'm new to Ukaps and having found it after deciding to set up an aquascape (or at least try to) I've been amazed at the amount of knowledge freely available from such a generous bunch of likeminded people!
Hopefully you'll be able to help me with a couple of questions I have,
I have a...

i am trying to identify two types of mosses and i am a bit or very confused i would say!!:crazy:

Name: The Green Stream
Setup Date: 13/03/2015
Description: The Green Stream was born as an idea a few months, the concept was to replicate the underwater image of a river bank with sand bed where the vegetation brings out the transition between the bed and the margin, which is the perspective in...
I'm trying to grow some moss balls with moss I collected (looks like Java moss) and some left over plants I had in my propagator. The balls are filled stockings with some ADA substrate and stones, wrapped spaghnum and (Java) moss around it and tight the plants on top of that covering their roots...
OK.. too late for verbal diarrhea.
too late.. or should I say..too early? lost in time
but came up with this.. some plants will go in.
dunno yet what kind of.. no name yet..
any suggestions on plats welcome (top right side corner and left side of the tank)
Time-lapse will follow tomorrow..or...
When I think back a year ago when I first purchased my first ever tank, a Juwel Rio 180, the assistant in the fish shop said about shrimp and that he bet (cheekily) that I would get into it as it was the new thing. At the time, I thought he was mad and I nodded with a smile and moved back to the...
Seen some really lovely examples of lovely christmas moss on the tropica website and elsewhere, however mine just looks like ugly green lumps in my tank.
Could someone advise me on how I am supposed to get it growing properly? I have good lighting and CO2 injection
I've recently re-scaped my TMC Signature so I thought I'd start a new journal on here.
Not really a groundbreaking aquascape - re-using the moss-covered Manzi from my previous two layouts that you can see here - George's TMC Signature | Page 38 | UK Aquatic Plant Society
I love moss. Only recently have I used it properly in aquascaping and I've realised the biggest PITA for me with it is dealing with the trimmings.
They usually sink to the bottom of the tank and require siphoning. Any leftovers usually get entangled with carpeting plants and end...

Okay, this is a Journal dedicated to the rescape of my ADA Mini M which can be found here.
The rescape has been coming for a long time as I was never really happy with it in comparison to the Raw nature feel I wanted to give it.
