    Yeah me too, there's a website called aquamoss I can't find it at the moment but it will give you a better ID than we could give.

    I'll hold you to that Dan, but I don't see any microscope comparisons going on in your I'D's. :p

    I would hope it's xmass moss as that's what you sold it to me as, from that exact picture.

    Often to ID a moss correctly you need to look at it under a microscope. Mosses grow differently in different conditions and just by looking at a photo it is generally very hard to tell. I've seen Java moss look very similar to xmas before.

    It certainly looks like xmas moss, I've got Java in the same tank and they do seem to be different when you see that piece next to it :D
