Java Moss - Vesicularia dubyana
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.

JAVA MOSS/ NICE PORTIONS
by scott kozza
Nicest looking moss I have bought. alot for the price. My shrimp and cpo's love it!!!!!!!!
Ordered three did not realise how much that actually was. Two balls were more than enuf third ball will b left in tank till I find somewhere to use it.
Very good amount of java moss for the price. Planning on ordering more soon!!!
Nice quantity for what you're paying. I was running out of places to put it. Mostly green with very little brown. Very happy! Just gotta watch it grow now.
I split the chunk of it in half and tied it to a piece of decor. It looks gorgeous and had very few dead pieces.
Not what it used to be
I guess it's a sign of our economy, but bought some a week ago and the portions were less than 1/2 what they used to be. Also, 1/2 of what I got was brown and needed to be trimmed and thrown out. Very disappointed with the quality, would have at least liked good quality given the quantity was lacking.
