any advice on this moss as I have some in my tank but do not grow very well ??
Can be a slow grower.
Grows faster (i mean faster than slow, but not quick) with pressurized co2 and good light!
I use pressured co2 and got 3.6wpg light so a lot of light but my moss do not grow at all
must be something with the ferts, what you dosing mate?
I use EI
rest of my plants looks fine I have some hair algae and some dust on glass but I try to fight with this I really like fissidens and i do not want to get rid of it
Fissidens can be a funny thing sometimes.. takes an age to get going, then all of a sudden it can grow at a silly pace, especially after a good trim. As others have said, it loves a nice yellow drop checker and good light, but will tolerate many conditions.
Are you sure you have Fissidens Fontanus? I've seen some eBay sellers listing other Fissidens species as Fontanus, and several of these don't enjoy life under water...
is Fissidens Fontanus i'm sure as was bought from a forum member some time ago
Where is the tank is it? How deep is your tank? Does it get any shade??
I have Fissidens Fontanus on my Rio 125 and I have it on a piece of wood that is about 10cm from the surface and it grows very fast, on my low tech shrimp tank is grows very very very slow. It took about a year to grow 2cm.
If you have it in a deep tank attach it to a bit of wood near the surface.
tank is in living room naxt to a window but there is no sun light
is a bit deep about 55cm but first I keep a moss 15-18cm below water surface without any shade now I moved them down about 30 cm below water surface again no shade will see if this help if not I move them back
