Flame Moss - Taxiphyllum sp

Description

 

Flame moss got its name from its form of growth. Tight, vertical growing and light undulating shoots give the impression of a deep green camp fire, 5-15cm high. The very special form makes Flame moss extremely suitable for horizontal surfaces and it only spreads slowly horizontally. A lovely result is achieved by binding the moss to small stones or in small bundles on tree roots. 

 

The benefit of Aquatic Moss

EASY TO MAINTAIN - You do not need any extra Co2 or special lighting. For maintenance, you can trim this plant every few weeks or leave it to grow into a wild looking moss forest for your fish to hide out 

 

FOOD SOURCE FOR SHRIMP AND FRY - This moss can harbor infusorians. These are minute organisms that are a vital first food for newborn fry. Shrimp may also like to feed off the microorganisms on the moss wall.

 

SOFT AND COMFORTING FOR FISH - This moss is not only beautiful but practical too. It will provide a safe place for shrimp, fry, and betta to hide in when they feel stressed. This is especially useful in a breeding tank.

 

CREATE A MOSS WALL OR MOSS CARPET - Sandwich this lush piece of aquatic moss in between plastic or metal mesh, this will create an attractive, green backdrop in your aquarium.

 

PROVIDES SOME OXYGEN - Like plants in general, moss sucks up CO2 and release oxygen in the water. If you don’t like noisy air stones, this moss is a great addition to help you oxygenate your tank.

Still, any nitrate absorbent is a benefit to your tank’s ecosystem.
