    My LFS sold me cough, cough, Java moss. To me it looks suspiciously like Crystalwort. What ever it is, I have it attached to some slate. Anyone setting the record straight can have the cuttings. ;)

    Can't say it is...

    Hi Tug,

    I cannot say it is Riccia fluitans, but does not look like Java Moss either, then again I am often wrong about these picture ID's. :eek:

    I found this it may (or not) help. :) http://www.killies.com/Truthaboutmosses.htm

    Yeah I'd take some if I thought I had something you might want in trade. All I have right now is the Fabco needle valve vernier mod I posted a while back. Traded two to Wet for some plants and he threw in some riccia but I could use some more.

    Oh crap. :D Maybe ask Fred. I just gave most of it to a friend that wanted some. The cuttings from off the slate tend to be rather short, if i keep up with the pruning. I do have some in a brackish water tank. What I call brackish anyway, SG 1.001- 1.002 and I hope to grow it out. It did better then I would have thought, until recently. The other plants have grown in and are competing for CO2. The stuff attached to the wood died back. If what I have left does better on the surface I can do something then. But, worry about it growing in brackish water. If I should even call water with a SG of 1.002 brackish.
