    Java Moss (Vesicularia dubyana) is fairly undemanding. It can be left floating or attached to a surface like wood or rockwork (anchor in place with fishing line or another tie and remove the ties when plant has attached). It will form mats that provide hiding places for inverts and fish fry as well as a low foreground texture to the aquarium. It is adaptable to a wide range of aquarium conditions. Mosses are sold in small loose portions.

    NOTE: The identification of "Java Moss" has been disputed in recently years with some proposing the true scientific classification as Taxiphyllum barbieri rather than Vesicularia dubyana. However, this identification cannot be confirmed because of the lack of spores and other data.
